"Raising the Bar on Night Photography

Come join our group of 45 members (already in progress but not signed into this site). The program for May is "Raising the Bar on Night Photography & post processing" presented by Mike Berenson from Littleton, Colorado. Mike has the honor of having won Best of Show awards in the Littleton Eye Of The Camera competition and the Lone Tree Photography Show, both in 2013.

It's great that we have so many tools and approaches to choose from in processing our images.  But this can make it a little tough to figure out what works well and is most effective - specifically for night photography.  Award winning night photographer and instructor, Mike Berenson shares the techniques he uses most in his images in this special event training presentation for the SW Jeffco Photo Club.

Night Photography Post-Processing Techniques To Be Covered (if time allows)

1. RAW Processing in Lightroom

2. Enhancing starry night images with Photoshop filters

3. Blending multiple exposures

4. Adding star spikes to your stars

5. Comet-Like Star Trail Processing


Mike Berenson is a talented photographer based in Littleton, Colorado who combines his love for the starry night sky with his love for landscape photography.  Mike says it feels a little strange telling people that his passion for night photography actually started deep underwater in the tropical waters of the Caribbean.  But that’s where he found his love for sharing wonders of the world with those who aren’t able to see for themselves.  And once he transitioned to the mountains of Colorado under starry night skies and started applying some innovative techniques, he knew he’d found his calling.  These days, Mike enjoys sharing techniques (both out in-the-field and in post-processing) with night photography workshop students in Colorado and Utah.  Mike has the honor of having won Best of Show awards in the Littleton Eye Of The Camera competition and the Lone Tree Photography Show, both in 2013.

 This will be a "not to miss" presentation!

    Very interesting, but somewhat above my head!

      Yes, I'm sure it was above most of us. We've targeted this year to be more about post processing. We haven't done this in the past, but we felt it would be good to move people a long the path. It's usually good to see what's possible, whether we'd do it or not. We don't know the presenters before they come, so it's always a surprise for us. I hope you'll come again as each month is different.
