Adventures in Night Photography – Photographing Stars and the Milky Way

Have you ever looked up at night and wondered what was out there in the universe?  Well our camera actually can capture objects in the night sky that our eyes can’t see, and it’s amazing!  Although I consider myself an amateur at photography and especially night photography I can share lots of hints and tips that I have learned over the past couple of years pointing my lens up toward the night sky.

So let’s talk about equipment, actually taking night photographs and what I have found most important the pre-planning and location selection.  Let’s explore the night sky together!

Dana Jones, a member of Mariposa Photo Club, has had a yearning for adventure since she was young, so it was only natural that after working 28 years for State Parks that wanderlust took over when she retired.  Dana now travels the country and the world, like a nomad, in search of the most wonderful places.  And everywhere Dana goes, the sky follows.  Dana says, “The night sky is amazing, you find not only wonder and awe-inspiring aspect of grandeur but fine detail representing the minutiae that is all around us. ”

 

Join us on July 8th at 6:30 pm for Dana’s presentation on photographing the stars and the Milky Way.
