Event description

Description

If you enjoy photography and are fascinated by the desert night sky, this three-session, hands-on workshop is for you! Dennis Mammana will teach participants how to use even the simplest of cameras to create magnificent celestial portraits. The class will begin with tips for setting up and shooting the night sky. Saturday evening, participants will head into the park to try out their new knowledge under the real night sky. The next day, Mammana will show how the image taken the previous night can be altered in PhotoShop. Any camera, digital or film, will work, as long as it can be adjusted manually, used with a tripod, remote control, and can take exposures of 15, 30, or more seconds. Students should have a good working knowledge of their equipment prior to taking this class on manual modes in the dark.
