Landscape Astrophotography for beginners

once in a lifetime

We want to take you on your first steps into the world of photographing the universe. The night sky is a mesmerizing sight especially when we arrive at a dark sky location.

Our aim is to get you familiar with the map of the night sky, how to get focus in the dark and how to achieve the best setting for the situation.

We will be taking photos of the milky way and constellations with a wide angle lens 14 to 35mm

Equipment required for these workshops are

Camera with manual mode

sturdy tripod

lens with fast aperture

cable release or in camera shutter delay.

If you would like to join us please use the contact button below, we will then send out an email as to when the weather looks good enough.

We will need to move quickly so a weeks notice will be given and a location chose to meet

We will work around the moon and set up workshops to coincide with new moon or a few days either side

Weather is a major factor to consider as any cloud can spoil the night shoot so if clouds are forecast then we will cancel the date and look for the next new moon.
