Astrophotography Workshop, Part 1- Basics
The first part of our Astrophotograpy workshop. In this session we will cover - expectations - astronomy basics - gear and settings - software and other options - types of targets - planning your shoot - astronomy field etiquette Part 2 will be 1/19 and is a post processing session where we will stack a set of sample images. The field exercise will be tentatively scheduled for Friday, 2/1 in the parking area of Brasstown Bald. The moon sets early and dark night starts at 8:30. We will plan to get there between 6:30 and 7 to set up and take bais and flat sets. Orion should be up just at sunset so we can start right in at dark night taking our light frames. (That last sentence will make sense after the first part of the workshop!)

What we're about

Meet amateur photographers from in and around the Decatur area! Come to a Photography Meetup to share tips and techniques, attend photo shoots, share your images and stories -- and have fun. At least once a month we'll organize a photo shoot around a subject, or at an interesting spot in or around Atlanta. Other meetings will be planned around instructional tips to help you get the most out of your equipment. This group is primarily for amateurs. You should have a basic understanding of photography and a digital camera, but have a passion for improving both artistically and technically. If you are an experienced photo hobbyist, please be willing to assist those are still learning how to create high quality images.
