Looking up at a blanket of stars in the night sky is awe inspiring and learning how to capture them in a single image can be a challenging but exciting process.
On this workshop you’ll learn some of my well practised techniques to set yourself up with the knowledge to master at the art of Astro Photography as we shoot at Gantheaume Point under the soft light of the quarter moon.
What you’ll learn:
- An understanding of how Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO work and what they mean.
- How to calculate the best settings for the equipment you’re using.
- Composing an eye catching image.
- How to manually focus on the stars.
- Create star trails and or paint with light.
- How to plan your next Astro Photography shoot.
The only things you need to bring is your DSLR camera and tripod, but to maximise your astro experience here are some other things to consider bringing to the workshop.
- A DSLR camera with full manual setting options (including bulb exposure mode)
- Your widest angle lens (lowest mm, eg, 18mm, 24mm, 16-35mm)
- A sturdy tripod (can be provided)
- A head torch with red light settings if possible
- A remote shutter release (recommended)
- Your camera manual (if needed)
- Warm clothes (during cooler months)
