One of the main goals of this page is to inspire you to try something new. Sometimes sharing a pretty photo just isn’t enough so I have partnered with @shari_hunt
who will lead an astrophotography field trip on June 29-30 at Fort Griffin State Historic Site (Albany, Texas).
This is a female-only trip that will be limited to 10 participants and the fee is $100. The fee will include meals, snacks, and entrance fees. You will be responsible for your own accommodations.
Shari is an experienced photographer and well versed in sharing her tips and techniques on how you can capture your own astro images.
Once you sign up, a detailed course description will be forwarded to you but you can expect to learn the following:
1) Planning for the Milky Way
2) Milky Way Anatomy and how it changes throughout the season
3) How to focus in the dark
4) Night Photography settings (white balance; image stabilization; RAW images; and LENR)
5) Using an intervalometer
6) Post-processing techniques
7) Light painting; star trails; Milky Way; and sunrise
To sign up, please DM and provide your contact info including phone number and e-mail address. Once the list of attendees is confirmed, a Facebook group will be created and a detailed schedule will be provided.
If you have been wanting to learn more about astrophotography and want to meet some new people, AND don’t need a lot of sleep --- consider joining us.
Hope to you see you in June. -- @coznlinda
