ASTRO & LIGHT PAINTING PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP – COHUNA
Astro-photography is as much about technical settings as it is timing and beautiful locations and on this workshop we have it all. Our overnight workshop is held in Cohuna in northern Victoria where there is very little light pollution as well as affording us exclusive-access locations with tractors, old dilapidated trucks and other farm equipment to enhance our photos. The workshop is broken into three phases:
1. Location scouting & theory
2. Photographing the stars & light painting
3. Image processing workshop on Sunday morning
Whilst there is a lot of technical concepts in this workshop we have filled it with stories and relatable analogies to break down big challenges into bite-sized pieces to help you truly understand what is happening in front of your lens. With a small group of just 8 people and 2 instructors, there is plenty of one-on-one time to help cater to your personal experience level.
As a bonus to this workshop, we will be using a range of light painting equipment including Dennis Smith’s (Ball of Light) professional grade light painting kit!
