Join award winning landscape photographer Tommy White as we explore the night sky on the Blue Ridge Parkway in this Astrophotography Workshop. This weekend workshop will take you to the photographer’s favorites spots for hands on instruction. The workshop will also include processing and image editing and review sessions.
What to expect:
A two day adventure shooting in the wee hours. Students in this Astrophotography Workshop will become night owls for a few days as we explore hidden beauty in the night sky. Our adventures will take us to the Blue Ridge Parkway to photograph the night sky, including the Milky Way, constellations, nebula, star reflections and star trails. We will visit some of my favorite areas including The Blue Ridge Parkway, Linville Gorge and Pisgah National Forest. There will be a variety of foreground subjects and will discover the magic of light painting.
