Nightscape Photo Workshop

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 Curt's work online: http://pbase.com/cwphoto

Essential Gear Includes:

  • DSLR Camera
  • fully charged battery
  • sturdy tripod
  • wide angle lens preferred (Rokinon 14mm is popular & has reasonable cost)
  • Strongly recommend a spare battery and a memory card.

Optionally, you can bring a laptop with image editing software.

Participants should be familiar with changing camera settings and have either a dim red flashlight or a red screen app on their phone. When time allows, before dark, the workshop will include a short review of images in Photoshop. 

Dress so you are comfortable for the anticipated night temperatures.

Registration Required - Registration closes at 3 PM 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.
