Stargazing: Night Sky Photography Workshop
June 25 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm EDT
About the Workshop
The purpose of this workshop is to educate people on how to capture the beauty of the the night sky on camera. Topics being covered include equipment needed, camera settings, and the best locations for viewing. These workshops will start out with a brief presentation (in the conference room), and then we will go outside for hands-on experience — taking pictures of the night time sky (hopefully the milky way or the northern lights) around the Lodge property (weather depending). With the information garnered from the workshop, it will make stargazing more enjoyable.
Free for Lodge guests, $75 for non-Lodge guests.
Reservations are required. Space is limited, so you will want to register early to reserve your spot. To reserve your spot, please call (906-289-4403 ext 2) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You meet at the Conference Center at the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge between 7:00pm and 7:30pm. The session will last about 2 hours – possibly more if participants would like to spend more time with guided practice.
About the Instructor: Thomas Oliver
Thomas Oliver is the Events and Educational Lead at the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge. He is an avid photographer of wildlife and landscapes, including dark skies and northern lights. His photography work can be viewed at teoliver.com and @theupwell on Instagram.
Since he was a child, nature, wildlife, and the outdoors have always been his deepest fascination – the intrinsic force which drives him. Those interests led him through, both, his career (in wildlife ecology/management and science education) and his preferred forms of recreation (hiking, backpacking, canoeing and kayaking, photography, hunting and fishing, and birding). Although, he was born and raised in the UP, these pursuits also provided me the opportunity to live overseas (in Europe and Asia) for 15 years, which greatly expanded my experience with the outdoors and outdoor recreation in different cultures.
