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.
Join us in August 2021 for a four night in-depth instruction and hands on guidance astrophotography workshop during new moon when skies are at their darkest!
We will teach you how to find your way around in the dark, find the best composition using PhotoPills, what exposures to use for night photography, and how to focus in the dark.
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 continue for several hours of astrophotography to be able to maximize our time in the park. There will also be an optional opportunity for sunrise shooting on 2 of our mornings.
Required Equipment and Accessories :
Astrophotography requires a professional level camera and lens in order to be successful and get the image results you are looking for.
If you do not have a professional level camera or lens, we would highly recommend purchasing or renting them.
If you need to purchase or rent ANY of the required equipment - please, feel free to contact me at 719.930.1301 and I can help you get set up.
We only teach in our workshops single exposure wide-field astrophotography, which can best be described as landscape photography in the dark, with an emphasis on capturing brilliant Milky Way images using wide-angle lenses.
Over the years a variety of techniques have been developed but our shooting time will be focused on getting the most out of your equipment with just a single exposure.
This is a great place for the beginning astrophotographer to start or the intermediate photographer to perfect before moving on to the more technical options.
We will also spend two afternoons on post-processing techniques that can help you create striking images using Lightroom Classic CC.
Bring your laptop to the class loaded with a couple of images you want to process. Make sure you have the latest version of Lightroom Classic CC.
If you don’t already own Lightroom Classic CC - you can download a free 7 day trial here.
Participants: Limit 6
Moderate : All age levels are welcomed. Light hiking in is involved, but nothing too strenuous. We’ll drive to each location then hike to the best position.
