Astrophotography has exploded in popularity in the past 10 years, with modern Mirrorless, DSLR and even Mobile phone cameras capable of capturing the incredible detail from the night sky. This presentation takes you through what makes a great Nightscape image, and how to plan, prepare and shoot Astrophotography. We will cover how to locate the Milky Way in the night sky, how to plan for Star Trails, the equipment we have, the compositions to find, the settings to use. At the end of this session you will be armed with the tools you need to get out and capture your own Astro and Nightscape imagery with your camera.
Jay is a landscape photographer, tour guide, educator, and Sony Digital Imaging Advocate based in the Blue Mountains. With a passion for nightscape and astrophotography, Jay hosts photo tours and workshops teaching the techniques to capture the Milky Way and stars at some superlative and iconic Australian locations. Jay holds an EcoPass license with NSW National Parks and Wildlife, commercial tour operator licenses for Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and Northern Territory Parks, and is an accredited Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park Tour Guide.
