Milky Way Photography

Join me in the beautiful Martis Valley in Truckee under the Milky Way as we cover fundamentals of photographing our Galaxy on a dark night with a new moon. I will share with you the following strategies and techniques:

  • How to plan for shooting the core of the galaxy with the Smartphone Apps Photo Pills and the Photographer's Ephemeris
  • Techniques to shoot the Milky Way over landscape elements
  • How to shoot multiple exposures to later blend them together

We will meet at 9:00 PM in the Martis Valley Wildlife Area parking lot, between Truckee and Northstar, go over gear, and then shoot from 9:30 to 11pm. Then, I will host a post production tutorial session in Lightroom and Photogshop: 10-11am Wednesday August 3rd at my Truckee studio in Pioneer Commerce Center.
