We’re Solving The Two Greatest Challenges Of Astrophotography

It’s late at night and it’s dark outside, how do you nail focus and how do will you know if you’ve captured the full potential of the night sky? We cover all the common issues that beginners face when out in the field and just how easy it is to combat them to get perfectly sharp images.

Focus Issues – Blurry Stars

With many lenses, it’s very difficult to focus perfectly on the stars, because even a fraction of a millimeter on your distance scale can mean the difference between 100% sharp stars, and uselessly blurry stars. We will teach you fail-proof methods to nail focus every time, so you won’t get frustrated in the dark trying to figure out what went wrong.

Correct Exposure – Grainy Images

We’ll take you back to Photography 101 to discuss how the Exposure Triangle changes when it comes to photographing the night sky. Our starting guide will be the perfect companion for your nightscape adventures and will help guide you in the right direction to get the ideal settings for the scene you’re in.

Don’t Let Your Gear Limit You From Endless Possibilities

Worried that you won’t be able to capture the epic sky because you don’t have the right camera or lens? We give you our favorite recommendations for gear for every budget and experience level. Don’t break the bank buying the best gear when you can make do with what you have!

Document Your Adventures In An Extraordinary Way

Many photographers pick up nightscape or landscape photography as a hobby, allowing them to use their gear to create fun images outside of their everyday work. We wanted to create a workshop that will aid you in documenting your travels in a memorable way, giving you insight on how to photograph subjects under the stars!
