DCNR Calendar of Events

Canceled -- Nightscape Photo Workshop

Amid concerns about the potential spread of COVID-19, all public programs, events, and trainings in state parks and forests are canceled through April 30. 
Except for the parks and forests that have been announced as closed, state park and forest facilities remain open.   



Photograph the starry night sky with your DSLR camera & lenses you currently own. Curt Weinhold, a PA Wilds Juried Artisan, teaches you to photograph constellations & the Milky Way. Foreground material, such as trees or buildings may also add to the composition. Samples of work online: http://pbase.com/cwphoto

Essential Gear Includes: DSLR Camera, fully charged battery, sturdy tripod, wide angle lens prefered (Rokinon 14mm is popular & has reasonable cost). Strongly recommend a spare battery if available and a memory card. Optionally, you can bring a laptop with image editing software. Participants should be familiar with changing camera settings. When time allows the workshop will include a short review of images near the conclusion.

Dress so you are comfortable for the anticipated night temperatures. You may bring a small flashlight. We can supply red cellophane to cover lens.

Registration Required - Registeration will open 45 days prior to class and close at 3pm 2 days prior to class (or when full). You may put your name on a waitlist if class is full. Class size is limited to only 10 seats. Class is NOT for those wishing to photograph through a telescope. Payment of $60.00 will be due upon arrival at the program by check or cash only. The program will be cancelled in the event of rain or overcast skies. Questions? Contact Curt at cwphoto@zitomedia.net
