Use your camera to reveal the brilliant light of stars in the Milky Way, incorporate the beautiful landscape in the foreground against a crisp sky, and see the night through new eyes.

Capturing the Night

Wednesday, June 8, 7-9pm

Learn about the equipment and techniques needed to make night sky photographs. Students will learn DSLR camera settings such as the correct apertures, ISOs, shutter speeds and white balances needed to capture stunning photographs of the Milky Way and Earth’s celestial neighbors. The class will also teach students how to focus in the dark and how to use light painting and off-camera flash techniques, as well as compositions, and the use of intervalometers (long exposure remotes) for long exposures and star trails. Come learn how to make these captivating images with Tony Rowell.

Bishop Photo Excursion

Friday–Sunday, June 10–12

Come take photos in this stark and captivating environment. We’ll arrive in the afternoon to scout and plan our shots (or you can arrive earlier to shoot Bishop landscapes at your leisure). We’ll go to work at dusk and shoot until the early hours. It will be loads of fun and we’ll make some truly spectacular images together. Recommended accommodations provided upon registration.

The field shoot requires a short (1/4 mile) hike to Mobius Arch. We recommend that you wear layers (as it can be quite chilly at night), as well as shoes that are good for walking.
