So why this astrophotography workshop?

During the astrophotography workshops we will focus on astrophotography (photographing the night sky). We will work on and talk about settings, setup, locations, tips and tricks and post processing techniques. We will discuss meteor showers, the Milky Way, northern lights (aurora borealis), deep space and other amazing things that happen under a dark sky. These workshops are on dates where the moon will not be out for most or all of the night. These workshops will happen rain or shine. So if it happens to rain the day of the workshop we will discuss landscape and wildlife photography, so be prepared by bringing clothing for any and all weather. These workshops are designed to be a fun outdoor learning experience where you will gain the photographic and wildlife expertise from Wesley Liikane – Cowboy with a Camera. So if you have ever thought of taking pictures of the night sky, or looking to learn some advance processing techniques make sure to register.

Some people ask me how I can stay out all night viewing and photographing the night sky. My reply is always, where else can you stand in one place, not move and yet photograph billions of different objects? The answer is, nowhere but up.
