Capturing amazing shots of the night sky is not quite as challenging as you might think. With just the right information, tools, techniques and understanding, you can do so quite easily and probably with the camera and lenses you already have. You might even be able to take some with your smart phone.
In this course, we will cover everything that you need to know including the exact settings you need to use on your camera, how to adjust them for your specific equipment, finding dark sky locations close to you, how to take advantage of less than ideal dark sky areas and still get great shots, how to incorporate light painting into your images, how to do time lapses, how to use special techniques to shoot low light images with minimum noise or graininess at the highest quality and resolution, how to shoot specific night sky scenes such as super moons, eclipses, constellations, the milky way, star trails, and many more.
Then we will delve into the best editing techniques that you need to use in order to make your images pop off the screen and stand out above the crowd. Its one thing to capture a great night sky image. Its another thing altogether to know how to edit it in post production so that it is the absolute best image it can be. We will cover many different techniques and editing elements, such as image blending, noise reduction, adjusting contrast and many others to make the best possible image that looks natural with the least amount of light pollution, among other things.
How the Online Course Works:
You will have the ability to move along at your own pace in this multi-week online Course which will be available entirely online, with the option of meeting together in our virtual classroom as needed during the course.
Each module will contain a detailed lesson with a portion of the information we discussed above. At the end of each lesson, you will find an assignment. Completion of that assignment is required to move on to the next lesson. These assignments are set up to assess your understanding of the material in that particular lesson and to make sure that you are progressing in the exact direction that you want to be moving with your photography skills.
Once the assignment as been submitted, I will then do an assessment of it and return an evaluation to the student addressing any concerns or questions you might have. We will then go over any additional information that might be needed to make sure you get everything you can out of that particular lesson.
This course can be completed at the students own pace and lessons can be redone if needed throughout the course. This is your course and I want to make sure that you learn everything you can from it as we go along.
Unlike other online classes, I work with you personally 1-on-1 to make sure you personally are getting everything you need to out of the course.
If you have questions or would like to meet during the course, we can do so in my virtual classroom which we can do audio and/or video chatting as well as screen shares for any questions you might have about techniques, post processing, etc.
Please let me know if you have any questions about this course. I will be happy to help any way I can.
I look forward to working with you to make all of your dreams come true!
