Milton residents invited to photography course with the stars

April 29, 2017 by  

Photography buffs who are interested in taking their hobby to the next level are invited to attend an intensive two-day long course in Milton that will teach them how to get the most from night-time photography.

The Canadian Astro Photography Schools will be offering a workshop where members of the public can hone their skills when it comes to photographing stars, planets and the rest of the night sky. The facilitator will be sharing tricks and tips, and will provide an introduction to the most current software in the field. All are welcome to participate.

Those who take part in the event will walk away with a better knowledge of how to use their camera for astrophotography, whether that means using a tripod or engaging in deep field pictures of the galaxy. Those who are interested in taking part in the workshop will need to bring a laptop with a Windows-based operating system. Comb binding can be utilized to create a course handbook for distribution to each person who registers for an event like this.

The Astrophotography 101 course will be held on May 6 and 7 in Milton’s Bishop Reding Secondary School. The registration fee has been set at $350 each, and further details, including an opportunity to register, have been made available to the public on the organizer’s website.
