Are you fascinated with the night sky and wondered how they get those Milky Way and Star Trail images?
Looked outside and all you see is an orange, light polluted sky? Where are all the stars?
The night sky is one of the most awe inspiring sights that we have the privilege of witnessing.
We’ve been photographing the night sky since moving out to California from rainy England in 2012. The skies literally opened up with possibilities now that we could count on good weather most of the time, but learning how to photograph the night sky could be challenging and confusing. We've traveled all around California, Nevada, Utah and Arizona, going through many nights of trial and error to pinpoint the best and easiest steps to get great results and we are going to share them with you in this course.
It’s estimated that 80% of the US population cannot see the Milky Way due to light pollution. This is a sight that should not be missed for the world - but it will need some planning and some traveling. How much traveling is really down to your proximity to a big city.
After this course, you will be able to know how to take images of the Milky Way and star trails by following a clear set of guidelines. You will get outdoors, capture the wonder of the universe and create great memories at the same time.
Note - this course is from a Northern Hemisphere perspective, but the principles are still applicable everywhere!
In this course you will learn:
This course is for the photographer who wants to take images of the amazing Milky Way but has either tried and not gotten far yet, or who wants to get fully prepared before heading out and not to waste time. No special equipment is needed besides your camera, tripod and a few accessories
Go ahead and enroll to start on you way - I promise you will never look back and the night sky is an addictive place to photograph!
