Workshop Information

Are you ready to capture the beauty of the Milky Way in all its glory? Our night photography workshop is aimed towards beginner and intermediate skill levels. We will provide you with a tip sheet before the workshop. During the workshop, experienced photographers will help you with the settings and verify that your photographs are perfectly in focus. We also make sure your compositions are on point. After the workshop, we will discuss post-processing during a Zoom meeting.

We will take sunset photos at the top of the pass. Afterwards, we will discuss night photography and wait for the Milky Way to rise. Once the Milky Way is in position, we will capture several nightscape compositions.

We will be parking close to the location where we will be photographing the Milky Way. There is no strenuous hiking. Several restrooms are located at the top of the pass.


Zoom Class

This workshop includes a Zoom class on Sunday August 20th at 3PM. It will take about 2 to 3 hours. During the class, we will go over some post-processing ideas and examples. We will also answer any questions you might have. There will also be a recording of the Zoom class in case you are not able to make it.
