After signing up, you will receive an order confirmation email. Please check your junk/spam folder if you do not see it in your email inbox. You will also receive a pre-workshop questionnaire. 10-14 days before the workshop, you will receive another email with photography tips regarding the workshop and more specific workshop details. We are also going to include a waiver for you to sign.

Workshop Information

Are you ready to capture the beauty of the Milky Way in all its glory? This 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, Lars will help you with the settings and verify that your photographs are perfectly in focus. He will also make sure that your compositions are on point. After the workshop on Sunday afternoon, we will discuss post-processing during a group Zoom meeting.


We will meet in Salida, Colorado on Saturday April 13 2024 at 12:00AM MST (Midnight the night of Friday into Saturday). From there Lars will drive you to the photography locations. Depending on the weather conditions and how fast our small group moves, there are several different locations to photograph. Since there are only three participants and we all ride in one car, we will be rather flexible. We will have several hours to photograph the core of the Milky Way. After it gets brighter at around 4:50AM we will head back to our initial meeting location in Salida. If you want, you then have the option to photograph the sunrise at 6:30AM. We will then be back at the meeting location around 7:00AM.

Fitness Level

We will be parking close to the location where we will be photographing the Milky Way. There is no strenuous hiking.

Zoom Class

This workshop includes a Zoom class on Sunday April 14 at 3PM MST. During the class, Lars will go over some post-processing ideas and examples. He will also answer any questions you might have. The class will be about two hours long. There will also be a recording of the Zoom class in case you are not able to make it.

What you need

  • Camera capable of at least ISO 3200
  • Extra battery
  • Fast wide-angle lens (between 14mm and 24mm full-frame equivalent and f/2.8 or faster is ideal)

  • Sturdy tripod
  • Remote shutter release or use 2-second timer to avoid camera shake
