Astrophotography with Mark Russell 17 June 2022
Taught by Mark Russell, a New Zealand photographer, who has been taking photos of the Milky Way and the dark sky for over a decade. Mark has worked closely with Aotea (Great Barrier Island) and the island of Nuie, assisting photographically in their successful applications to become Dark Sky Sanctuaries.
Mark makes the class welcoming and guarantees you will leave with the skills to take pictures of our night sky. Breaking down the techniques used, Mark will focus on your camera settings (shutter speed, aperture, ISO, white balance) along with lens selection, composition and also editing images through to publication.
Theory will be hands-on (bring a camera and a tripod if you have one), with spares available for those without. Following the practical theory section, we will step outside and use the techniques just learned to take images of the night sky. The course runs in all weathers, with a backup shooting scenario planned if there is rain.
