Have you ever wished you could photograph the beauty of the night sky, but not known the photographic techniques you need to do it? Learn how to capture amazing night sky photographs in Night Sky Landscape Photography, with the Rocky Mountain Conservancy, August 23rd-25th. This class will introduce intermediate level photographers to techniques and camera settings that will help participants photograph the Milky Way, the moon, the stars, and other astronomical features using DSL cameras and standard lenses. The class will also provide a tutorial on how to plan and edit these images on a computer.

This photography class is led by Stan Honda, a photographer with many years of photojournalism experience across the United States. For the past few years, he has been working on night sky landscapes, and has been an artist-in-residence for five national parks, including Rocky Mountain National Park. His work has contributed to the Dark Sky Park designation of Chaco Culture National Historic Park and Flagstaff Area National Monument.
