Rising 7,000 feet above the valley the jagged peaks of the Teton Range are one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the west providing a beautiful backdrop to the park.
The dark skies provide exceptional opportunities for Milky Way photography because of very little light pollution and clear, cold mountain air.
We will teach you how to capture the Majestic Milky Way, how to shoot star trails, image stacking and exposure blending. Also: an introduction demonstration into deep space astrophotography using a tracker.
Also Included in this workshop will be custom astronomy cosmic tour presented by an exceptionally knowledgeable astronomy guide using high powered telescopes. He will be giving us a close up view of several deep space objects including Jupiter, Saturn, The Moon, galaxies and star clusters.
We’ll photograph a few of the more popular landmarks but we’ll also go to lesser known locations.
Some of the more popular locations include:
Grand Teton National park has numerous lakes that are exceptional for reflecting and illuminating the night sky!
Each night our shooting will begin at sunset and conclude at sunrise to be able to maximize our time in the park.
We will also spend an afternoon on post-processing techniques that can help you create striking images using Lightroom and Photoshop.
Join us in August 2020 for this four night astrophotography workshop during new moon when skies are at their darkest!
There is no place like the Tetons for photographing the night sky!
