During the Milky-Way Workshop I will teach you the skills required and the knowledge needed to capture those great Milky Way shots out in the field and the post processing skills to help bring out the best in those photos.
You will spend a few hours out on location learning how find the Milky-way, setup and settings, capturing the Milky-way and a follow up 1 hour session of edit tips on zoom or Skype.
All the locations chosen I have been able to capture the Milky-way so I know that weather permitting you'll capture the Milky-way.
Most night shots require post processing to look their best. In the following days I will arrange with you a best time to arrange our 1-1 video call either via zoom or Skype, this will allow me to help you and show you how I edit my Milky-way with Photoshop and lightroom.
Clear skies are preferred but cannot be guaranteed, the session will go ahead as planned unless there is very heavy rain and thick fog or little chance of capturing the milky-way, should I feel the need to rearrange the session all will be contacted to agree a session for another date.
Groups will be kept small, and limited to 3 students.
