Have you wanted to capture the moon "right where you want it" but weren't sure how? If you know you could resort to photo editing and fake it but you'd rather get the real deal then this class is for you. This is a special "Eclipse Edition". In addition to instruction, attendees will get access to the newly revamped MoonChase Tool
[For more details on the above photo click here]
Steven will demonstrate how to determine when and where to go to capture an image like the Moon over Lick Observatory (below), or the moon at the Transamerica Building (left) or the sun shining through a portal in the Pacific Ocean (below). This is a Webinar so you can conveniently attend from your computer at work or home anywhere in the world.
You will be introduced to several free (and almost free) tools that you can use to plan a moon (or sun) shot. One indispensable tool covered in detail is the Photographer's Ephemeris by Stephen Trainor.
Steven will show how to plan a moon or solar "contact" shot, how to find compelling locations for "alignment" images, and what camera settings you need to get it all exposed just right, and why the eclipse might be a bit ore challenging than your normal moon shot.
Oh yeah, and you'll also learn when you can catch the moon hovering nicely over a Houston Landmark because not only is this the Eclipse Edition, but it's also the HOUSTON edition, oh yeah!
Need a little more incentive?
Here is what you can catch if you know where to stand and when. Thankfully you won't have to mock it up from Google Street View as I've done here!
EVENT Registration closes approximately 90 minutes before the event starts.
