"Astrophotography- Photographing the Beauty of the Night Sky"
by Peter Baumgarten-Canada
Monday, February 8, 7:30 PM

Astrophotography is often regarded as one of the more challenging styles of photography since we are literally-and figuratively speaking- shooting in the dark. It comes with some very specific challenges, but once those are identified, photographing the night sky actually becomes one of the easiest and most rewarding genres. Learn the basic camera gear and settings, how to photograph the Milky Way and auroras, online and mobile tools that will increase your chances of success and important compositional strategies that will make your images stand out.

Our speaker comes to us from Canada. After presenting at the 2019 NECCC conference, he was asked to do a tour of four local camera clubs in November 2019 which was sponsored by Olympus. He presented to full houses at each club. At Greater Lynn Photographic Association, he did a presentation on ‘The Great Outdoors-Seeing in a Different Light’. This time he will teach us all about how to shoot the night sky.
