If you are interested in fine tuning your skills as an Aurora and night sky photographer and learning the fine details of Northern Lights and low-light photography then this Aurora workshop is right for you! You or your small group will have a private 60 minute session in the afternoon that focus on the right equipment, composition, proper infinity focus, aperture and exposure time, white balance settings and all of the other fine details that are required to capture stunning images of the Northern Lights, the stars, planets and the Milky Way. In the evening and after the sky is dark, we will practice what we have learned in a field session. The next morning we will review the shots from the night and we will also include a short Adobe Lightroom training session that is sure to help you create the best images and prints possible and we will give you a small booklet with all the necessary information and details to read up later.
What equipment do you need to bring: a DSLR Camera (I recommend bringing extra batteries); a Wide Angle Lens, relatively fast (maximum aperture 4 but 2.8 or lower is the ideal); Sturdy Tripod; Cable Release and Headlamp (must include a red light). Camera equipment can also be rented with us for a discounted rate for the workshop use (please ask for a quote).
Regular Workshop Rate: $95/person (available from September 2016 to April 2017)
