Most of my photo venue suggestions are low or no cost: today’s is an exception. Noted popular astronomer, Dennis Mammana, is offering one of his ‘Night Sky Photography’ workshops in Borrego Springs on 27 and 28 September, and I commend it to you.
If you’ve ever seen those amazing night time photos that show stars lighting-up a scene —usually the desert— and wondered how they are done, this workshop will give you the understanding you need to create your own night sky photos.
Years ago, I took a similar class and managed to take the photos in the accompanying slideshow. But, you will note that my photos are not as crisp or interesting as those on Mammana’s website:
I have enrolled in this workshop so I can sharpen my skills and, finally, get a photo of the Milky Way Galaxy that has eluded me. Perhaps I’ll see you out, under the stars!
