Astrophotography   Group   Workshop

Capturing the night sky in all its wonder is an amazing experience and you’ll be surprised by how easy it is to do this with my knowledgeable guidance.

Throughout the night, I spend time with each participant giving them personal guidance in capturing impressive nightscape images.

The workshop starts with a brief outline of what you’ll learn during the night and how to setup your camera to capture some amazing photographs of the Milky Way and other Night-time images.

The Glasshouse Mountains is close to Brisbane and very good area to photograph the night sky as there isn't that much light pollution which enables participants to capture the wonders of the Milky Way.

Topics covered during the workshop:

  • Why using the correct ISO settings are so important in Night Photography
  • Choosing the right White Balance setting for your Nightscape images
  • What Aperture and shutter speeds you should use for different types of Night Photography
  • What is Light Pollution and how to capture night-time images when it is present
  • Handy tips on how to frame your Nightscape image too achieve that “Wow” factor
  • How to capture Star Trail images
  • Camera Accessories, what they do, and why use them
The July and August Astrophotography workshops will be held at the base of Mount Tibrogargan, and the September and October Astrophotography workshops will be held at the base of Mount Coonowrin. The Glasshouse Mountians are about an hours drive north of Brisbane.

The Meeting Point is the Puma Glasshouse Service Station, Steve Irwin Way, Glass House Mountains QLD

You'll need the following for this workshop:
