You Too Can Shoot The Milky Way
If you have attended one of our Milky Way Photo Walks and didn't come away with the shots you were hoping for, or if you'd like to learn more about how to photograph the Milky Way, then this is the meeting for you! We'll discuss the advancements of today's DSLRs, their sensors, features like dehaze and noise reduction in the current versions of Photoshop Lightroom Adobe software and how to capture the beauty of our galaxy. Teaching in the field in near total darkness is challenging, during this meeting we'll practice in normal lighting. Topics we'll cover: - what equipment you need - pre-shoot planning, apps and other tools to help you in the field - camera settings - how to focus in the dark - general post-processing tips using Adobe Lightroom Then we'll schedule a Milky Way photo walk so that you can put your learning to use! Bring - camera* full-frame or APS-C format DSLR or mirror-less that is capable of decent quality at high ISOs (2500 - 6400) - widest, fastest zoom or prime manual focus lens such as a 14-24mm - shutter release cable if you have one - camera's user manual - tripod Ask in the Comments section if you have questions regarding the suitability of your camera. If you have experience shooting the Milky Way, we invite you to come and help Seth, Celeste and Chris work with our guests with their questions. * Point and shoot cameras including smartphones do not have the capabilities for astro-photography.
