Night and Star Photography
Presenter: Ariel Estulin
Ariel is an award winning photographer and photo educator. Primarily interested in landscapes, he travels the world seeking out beauty in those wild and remote places on earth that still remain untouched by civilization and where nature commands ultimate attention. His training as a graphic designer continually shapes what he sees through the lens in order that elements such as light, shape and colour all work in harmony. As a photo educator, his goal is for students to come away with not just better photographs, but a better understanding of photography, better compositions and most importantly, a skill set they now have and can use on future adventures. With the rapid advance of digital camera technology, today’s cameras are capable of producing photographs that were not possible even just a few years ago. This presentation is designed to show you how to get started with taking photos of the night sky. Ariel will discuss gear, planning your shoot, camera settings, finding focus and getting sharp images, exposure, shooting star trails, light painting techniques and post-production techniques with live examples in Lightroom.
