Yellowstone’s Galactic Night Sky: A Photography Workshop
July 6 - 8
Lamar Buffalo Ranch
Angela Tempo, MA
The darkness of Yellowstone's night skies is palpable, revealing the depths and beauty of our galaxy. You have evolved under these skies, studying them and being shaped by them. Join me as you peer into the darkness and focus your camera on the cosmos through still photography and long exposure techniques. You will begin the seminar with a classroom introduction to the basic tools and skills of night sky photography. Then, you will bring these lessons into the field to capture beautiful night images, all while discussing the importance of darkness and stars to yourself and other species in our ecosystem that depend on these features to thrive. This seminar will also touch on post-processing techniques.
