Nightscapes Photography Workshop

September 27, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Photograph the starry night with your DSLR camera and lenses you currently own.  Curt Weinhold, a PA Wilds Juried Artisan, teaches you to photograph constellations and the Milky Way.  Foreground material, such as trees or buildings may also add to the composition.  Samples of work can be seen online at: www.pbase.com/cwphoto.

Essential gear includes: DSLR Camera, fully charged battery, sturdy tripod, wide-angle lens preferred (Rokinon 14mm is popular and has a reasonable cost).  Strongly recommend a spare battery if available and a memory card.  Optionally, you can bring a laptop with image editing software.  When time allows, the workshop will include a short review of images near the conclusion.

Dress so you are comfortable for the anticipated night temperatures.  You may bring a small flashlight – we will supply red cellophane to cover the lens.

Registration is required – registration will open 45 days prior to the class and close at 3 p.m. 2 days prior to the class (or when full).  You may put your name on a wait-list if the class is full. Class size is limited to only 10 seats.  Class is not for those wishing to photograph through a telescope.

Payment of $60.00 will be due upon arrival at the program by check or cash only.

The program could be cancelled in the event of rain or overcast skies.
