An educational how-to program designed to open up your eyes to the possibility of photographing landscapes with the star filled sky as a backdrop all with just one shot. The subjects covered will be on necessary equipment as well as camera setting for both star points and star trails. Some additional topics covered will be overcoming the challenges of focusing and composing at night and some minor tips on post processing the images.  The program will conclude with a segment on “blending images” because of new restrictions in the national parks. Questions will be encouraged during the workshop. Students will leave with a clear understanding of the techniques required and implement them out in the field for themselves. My e-book on the subject; “A Digital Guide to Photographing the Night Sky” was released in Feb. 2011. Find the instructor’s galleries, blog, gear reviews, nighttime landscape e-book, and more at:

This is a lecture-based class, so no equipment is required.
