Understanding the basics of nighttime photography takes a different skill set than simply pressing the shutter when there is daylight to capture. This day-long presentation will be filled with stories of what goes into making the images from start to finish. From basic understanding of space weather to what to make images of in the night sky, Heidi Pinkerton of Root River Photography will be sharing how she captures the magic of the night. A light lunch will be provided during this program.

This is a hands-on workshop designed to help you learn the basics of your camera, and how to create the images you desire. Bring your camera, manual, tripod, cable release, batteries and CF/SD cards! We’ll have plenty of opportunities to practice on focusing techniques, along with a light lunch mid-day.
