Date: 90 minutes on Friday evening September 23rd + 1 hour on Saturday morning September 24th.
Location: Spray, Oregon
Fee: $100 (includes dinner on Friday and breakfast on Saturday)
Join us far away from the city lights, at the PJ Ranch in Eastern Oregon’s John Day River Territory, for a mini-workshop on photographing the Milky Way.
We will discuss where and when to see our very own galaxy, optimal camera settings, and how best to use Adobe Lightroom CC to coax the best from your images.
Class size is very limited, to enable quality interaction and guidance.
Note: Late September has a very good chance of being clear in Eastern Oregon. If for some reason it’s cloudy (or God forbid smokey), our ‘Plan B’ will be Light Painting.
If you’re interested, please contact me for gear requirements, to sign up, suggestions for lodging, and for any other questions.
