Borrego Springs is the first official International Dark Sky Community in California dedicated to protecting the sky from light pollution, it is the perfect location to capture the beauty of the night sky. Meet Sony Ambassador Stan Moniz and learn the proper techniques necessary to capture the Milky Way.
A variety of techniques will be taught and explained in an easy to understand manner for any photographer who is interested in the art form of astrophotography. The explanation of the 500 rule, light painting, star trails, nightscape portraits, and on site post-editing images in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop will be covered on this fun-filled night under the blanket of the night sky.
We will meet just before sunset. After the sunset instruction, we will focus on full night photography, using different areas for change in background and scene. The Milky Way galaxy is only visible a few months out of the year. This workshop is offered during the New Moon when the Milky Way will be most visible in the nights sky.
