Learn how to shoot the stars, and the moon in this new class for 2019. Students will discover what gear is required to make stunning astrophotography, as well as how to make the gear they own work to get the best shots possible.
The first two session of this class will involve in class discussion and demonstration, covering camera settings, lens selections, and additional gear needs. Plus post production solutions in Lightroom will be covered as well, showing what can be further enhanced after the picture has been taken.
The third and final class session will be out in the field. Due to the nature of this class, this will happen later at night and outside the Reno/Sparks area. Time and location will be announced on the first day of class, but students should expect to drive out of the area, no more than hours drive, and plan on working later in the evening.
