Description

Banff at Night: An Introduction to Astrophotography

With Paul Zizka and assistants Jeff Wallace and Kahli Hindmarsh

Over this two-day workshop, Paul and his assistants will lead participants through a variety of night photography concepts, from preparing for an astrophotography session to image capture in the field and post-processing.

In the classroom, the event will include time for editing demos, critiquing, slideshows and lectures. In the field, we will be visiting a handful of locations that are world-famous for their beauty in daylight, but that look even more gorgeous under the night skies.
