Never Say Die When Photographing the Night Sky w/ Bob Coates
PPW Education Online - Thursday, May 11th beginning at 6pm
Questions: Contact Chris Wooley
There are lots of moving parts in play when capturing the night sky. I compare the capture of a solid Milky Way image to a 4D chess game. The sun, moon, and Milky Way are all moving. The Galactic Center is the star of the solid Milky Way photograph. But, where will it be? At what time. How will I know in advance where to set up my camera for the best results? Coates will share ideas and concepts that will remove the some of the mystery of the heavenly bodies shoot.
While our cameras can pick up lots of detail in the night sky, the images need some massaging to show all the starry treasures in the file. Learn about making selections in Photoshop for specific adjustments. Different areas of the images need different techniques. Many times the foreground needs to be processed separately as well.
Last of all, know that there will be times when you go out to photograph a specific subject it will not go as planned… That doesn’t mean you can’t come home with a winning image. Keep at it and take what nature gives you. Never say die!
