Learn the photography techniques behind taking great night sky photos!

 

This photography workshop is for anyone who would like to learn about night sky photography techniques. The workshop schedule will be fluid, with priority given to maximizing our night sky field photo shoot time. We will be shooting the night sky with an unobstructed view of the northern horizon over the very dark night sky over Big Manistique Lake. This workshop is scheduled at this time of year to maximize the potential of seeing the aurora as well, with October being one of the months that have the highest frequency of aurora occurrence. Participants will leave the workshop knowing the basics of getting consistently sharp and well-exposed night sky photographs in any conditions, as well as a list of references for planning efficient night sky photo shoots.

 

Shawn Malone has been capturing stunning scenes of the night skies and auroras in the Upper Midwest for decades, even before DSLR cameras. Seeming to always 'be there' even when the aurora is not forecast to be particularly active has lead some to jokingly label Malone as the “Aurora Whisperer”. Malone will share the tools and data sources used to be in the right place at the right time and maximize the potential of seeing the aurora.

 

Some of the night sky topics covered include:

  • tracking the Milky Way

  • identifying constellations

  • seeing the aurora

  • moon phases

  • star trails

  • light painting

  • time lapse

 

Several optional day trips will be on the itinerary as well for photo opportunities of the autumn color that should be at perfect peak in Mid October. Suggested trips include Tahquamenon Falls State Park, Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, Whitefish Point Lighthouse, Point Iroquois Lighthouse, Big Spring Kitchitikipi, just about every route driven will be very scenic and full of color this time of year. Final itinerary will be provided upon registration.
