Intro to Astro Photography

Intro to Astro Photography

Saturday 06 July
Ravensbourne - 6pm - 2 Hours
Daniel Hurst
Astrophotography looks amazing and packs a real punch, however, you do not need to spend a fortune to partake. Does gear make a difference, the simple answer is yes, but it is not the deciding factor when it comes to astrophotography. This meetup will look at planning your session, camera settings, required equipment. I want this meetup to help you maximise your current gear as your start capturing milky way shots.

This meetup is going to cover off everything you need to know to start capturing amazing single shot astrophotography and a few extra bits of helpful advice. The learnt basics of capturing a single frame will form the building blocks of your astrophotography journey. Think of this meetup as your first step on that journey or for those who have already started, maybe a road sign.

    Good meet-up, unfortunately cut short by rain. When the rain set-in, we unanimously decided not to go to the pools etc but to return to our vehicles.
    Daniel's enthusiasm is contagious and his obvious love for photography shines through. His discussions are never instructions but general ideas and suggestions of how to explore certain pursuits. His style encouraged cameraderie amongst participants.

    Enjoyed it immensely! Learnt more about my camera in those 2 hours than in the 7 years of owning it.

    Title or Location: West Creek, Toowoomba
    West Creek Reserve is just beautiful, especially at this time of year with the autumnal colors and abundant bird life. My usual time of day for photography here is evening for the pre-sunset glow, but impending inclement weather saw me out for a morning walk. My reward was the beautiful colored reflection in this photo. No post production, taken as is.

This is one of many shots I took while there, This is a blue hour blend where I took one photo right after sunset and another photo from the same spot hours later to capture the night sky then blended the 2 together. Thanks for looking!

    Title or Location: Sunny Sands, Folkestone
    This morning was not very promising, but still I was determined to get out and take pictures! Headed to Sunny Sands and found these two rocks in the sand that caught my interest. The tide was rising and the sun started glowing in the sky! "Perfect moment", and the a wave caught me by surprise and made my feet soaking wet! Apparently sign of good luck, and maybe so, it's one of my best images and was definitely worth it!
