Under the dark sky bonanza of the borderlands you will see more stars and constellations than you ever thought possible.
Even nights before the Milky Way appears, when moonlight shines bright, or not long after sunset as in this image, you will see so many stars you may have a hard time picking out familiar patterns.
Do you see Orion in the night sky above?
In my Night Sky Photography Workshops participants learn constellations and marker stars and planets, time indicators for the Milky Way, full range of camera settings, how to scout night sky locations, which apps I find helpful, software/developing/print techniques, and more. I enjoy customizing my workshops to participant’s needs.
I still have slots open for the Big Bend area Gila/Organ Mountains areas and can accommodate most schedules from March through May. Solo and small groups encouraged.
I’m available for custom Night Sky Photography Workshops anywhere in west Texas and southern New Mexico.
What past workshop participants have said:
“Today was one of the best experiences I have had since I took up photography. Your knowledge and experience shows in your teaching. I learned more about photography in the first 30 minutes talking to you than I have from reading books or watching a video…” – Phil H.
“Road does a great job facilitating — giving guidance and options to consider without restricting creativity.” ~ Earl S
“You catered to what I wanted/needed to practice. What a gem of a teacher!” ~ Beth R
“Road explains setups carefully and doesn’t give just one scenario. He proposes several alternatives.” ~ Sophia Z
“Road is not only very personable he is very knowledgeable, too. The icing on the cake is that he listens and worked out my ideas using his experience. I had a great time!” ~ Ke F
