This we'll head out to the sleepy fishing village of Pass-a-Grille to photograph the Milky Way. I'll be offering instruction on how to photographic settings (ISO, f/number and shutter speed). I will also be doing a Facebook LIVE (details below) for FCCP Supporters and FCCP Supporter Plus members. You are strongly encouraged to attend the Facebook LIVE or watch the recording.
You will need a tripod, no exception, because your shutter speeds may be as long as 45 seconds or more. You will also need a wide angle lens, the wider the better. I'll be using a 14mm lens on a full frame camera. I'll be recommending several lenses during the Facebook LIVE, if you want to purchase or rent a lens for the event.
Please park on the street in front of the Hurricane Restaurant. Parking is free overnight. We will be out on the beach, so please wear appropriate footwear etc. Insects usually aren't too bad in this area.
This event will be cancelled around midnight if rain or heavy cloud cover are forecast. Cancellation notices will be emailed to all registered members. Make sure your Meetup email is up to date.
The Facebook LIVE class is Thursday, June 20 from 7:30 PM to 8:00 PM. please sign up on the FCCP Supporter Plus Members Facebook Group here,
