Join MaryBeth and Aaron for an in-depth overview of everything you need to know about shooting stars. We will start out with the bare-bone basics – single image acquisitions. You will learn how to focus at night and how to integrate already established techniques for daylight photography into your night settings. We will also discuss the pros and cons of using a star tracker, which is what pushes this course into an intermediate level.
What you will learn:
- How to focus at Night
- Top gear considerations
- Optimizing single image exposures
- Beyond the single image
Gear needed: DLSR or Mirrorless camera with a fast wide-angle lens (F/2.8 or faster) and a sturdy tripod at minimum. Recommended gear include a wired or wireless remote. If your camera has a “time” function, you can work around not using a remote. A Star Tracker is optional, as well.
