George Herbert, a well-know professional photographer, will lead students on an enjoyable evening of photographing the night sky, during a new moon.
You will learn the techniques of capturing stunning images of our home galaxy – the Milky Way. You also will learn where to go and what time is best to photograph. Hand outs will be available on how to process your images when you return home.
