Talk by Mike Shaw. We will also have the Sky in October.
This Night Photography 101 presentation will give you everything you need to know to photograph the night sky with your DSLR or mirrorless camera. Aimed both at those who are brand new to nightscape photography and seasoned veterans, topics will include how to photograph the Milky Way, the moon, meteor showers, constellations and more. In addition, you’ll learn about night photography gear, recommended night photography camera and exposure settings, and most importantly, how to focus and compose in the dark. You’ll also explore the aspects of the nightly and monthly seasonality of the night that are the most important for night photography. These insights will allow you to plan and shoot any night photography image you wish – as long as the weather cooperates!
