Event description

Description

This field trip is dependent on the weather. The class will meet in the parking lot at Blackburn Point Park.

Photographing the Milky Way isn't as tough as it seems. It just requires the right equipment and patience. Foto Dono will be hosting a field trip to photograph the Milky Way. Trying to shoot at on-location does have its challenges, mainly because of light pollution.

The main goal for the field trip is to provide an experience in creating a single shot exposure or multiple exposures for stacking of the night sky. The next step is to render in post-production with Lightroom, Photoshop, or other editing software.

Weather - This event is dependent on the weather. Clouds and rain reduce the visibility of the night sky. I’ll make a final decision to shoot or not shoot about 24 hours before I head out.

Timeline for Monday night:

7:17 PM Sunset

8:34 PM Galactic Center is visible

9:45 PM - Review basic editing techniques.

11:34 PM Galactic Center sets

Dono should be there by 8:00 PM.

Camera equipment should either be a D-SLR or Mirrorless system. Bring your widest angle lens with a 2.8 f/stop or faster. You'll need a very sturdy tripod and a remote switch for your camera. Keep in mind this is depending on the weather. So come prepared; bring a flashlight and bug spray!

Refunds - If the event is canceled due, then a refund will be issued. However, there are no refunds if the Milky Way isn't visible due to cloud cover. A low light field trip with an opportunity to photograph the Milky Way.

Any questions call Dono (727) 741-1819 or email him at fotodono@mac.com.
