Nightscape & Startrails photography workshop



Hi everyone! I'm holding another photography workshop next month here in Yomitan, Okinawa!
This one will be a smaller cheaper workshop as we delve into the realm of Night and Star photography.

Here's the details. 


Nightscapes & Startrails photo workshop

Friday October 26th (Date may change to 27th if better weather is forecasted)
From 7:30pm ~ about 10:30pm at 
Zakimi castle ruins (Yomitan)
10 participants max (Don't worry if you don't make this one, we will have more!)
For beginners ~ intermediate levels. 
Cost ¥5000 per person (¥1000 deposit payable via Paypal by 30th Sept.)

You'll need a camera that can be controlled manually. 
Even point & shoots are ok as long as they have some way to control the shutter speed.
A tripod!
A torch of some kind and preferably a cable release or some way of triggering and locking your shutter. 

We will all meet at the Zakimi castle car park just after 7:30 and walk up to the castle ruins. 
We will be exploring the area trying out different nigh shooting techniques, tricks and fun with flash. 

I'm hoping to be able to get everyone back to my place to demonstrate some basic editing and star trails stacking etc..
If it turns out to be not feasible due to time and space etc. we may do the editing via a group Google+ Hangout the following night for example.

Being that this is an outdoor workshop we are totally dependent on the weather conditions. If there are not enough stars visible on the night of the 26th we may need to postpone until the following night or following weekend. 

Deposits will be fully refunded if we can't hold the workshop due to bad weather and your not able to attend the workshop on a later date.  

It's going to be really fun night and you'll learn how to shoot the landscape and night sky in a whole new way! 
Hope to see you there!
