This will be my first official Milky Way workshop, and it's going to be a big one!
This is a beginners guide to shooting the Milky Way. I'm going to keep this as simple as possible and hopefully you learn something along the way. We will mainly be focusing on a single image of the Milky Way. This means we won't worry about sky stacking, or foreground blending. This way, you will have an image you can take home and be happy with without having to do a lot of post processing. This class will be a great stepping stone into learning about what types of exposure settings are necessary for night sky photography.
The workshop will take place on Saturday, June 20th 2020 at Raystown Lake's Hawn's Overlook. Unfortunately, because of the nature of the weather, this one is going to be rain or shine. If for some reason we have cloudy weather, we can still apply techniques and settings that you would use on a clear night sky to capture the Milky Way.
This date gives us the best options for both a long night of shooting (without having to worry about getting up early for work!) and a date as close as possible to the new moon as we can.
