Event description

Description

This extraordinary opportunity will allow participants to learn how to photograph the night sky with a master. New York-based Stan Honda was a photojournalist for 34 years, most recently for Agence France-Presse (AFP). Although he has photographed a wide array of subjects over the years, he has a special passion for starry skies and night landscapes, combining his interests in astronomy and photography. He has worked as an artist-in-residence at five national parks, and his photography of Chaco Culture National Historical Park in New Mexico and Wupatki National Monument were used in reports that led to them both being designated as International Dark Sky Parks. Honda will conduct a three-part workshop introducing basic techniques to capture beautiful night sky photos with modern digital cameras. The three-hour+ session will include a short slideshow of Honda’s work, learning about your camera and how to photograph the night sky, and in-the-field instruction and photography.

Workshop participants must bring the following to the workshop:

A DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) or mirrorless compact system or micro four thirds camera that allows manual adjustment including the following:
Manually adjustable shutter speed allowing exposure times up to at least 20 seconds duration – OR – or a “bulb” or “B” setting for the shutter speed and a remote cable shutter release
Manually settable aperture or F-stop
Manually settable ISO sensitivity, with ISO value of at least 1600 or 3200
Manually adjustable focus
A tripod
A small flashlight, preferably red LED or filtered with red cellophane
We recommend that you read your camera’s owner manual about using manual settings before the workshop

Do not bring pets
