Island Night Skies

  • Share:
Name: Island Night Skies
Date: August 25, 2014 - August 29, 2014
Event Description:

Join accomplished photo educator, John Gregor for a week of photographing the spectacular Madeline Island night skies.  This workshop is for photographers of all levels.

There is no better place to learn about night sky photography than on Madeline Island, but the techniques learned here can be applied anywhere in the world!

Whether a beginner, amateur, or professional, what most photographers see is not always what they capture on camera, and certainly not what comes out in print.

This workshop which includes shooting in various conditions of light, and exploring proper digital technique and workflow, is designed to help participants realize their photographic visions, from field to finished print.

Field shoots will provide the subject matter for daily studio sessions in which the instructor will demonstrate post-processing techniques using Adobe Photoshop or Lightroom. Discussions will include issues related to print resolution, color space, using ICC Print Profiles, paper/media selection, image sharpening for print output, and editorial post-processing manipulation.

Each participant will work on their own images and have the opportunity to make several 8×10 test prints and 2 12×18 finished exhibition quality fine art prints that evoke the photographer’s excitement and vision as first experienced in the field. Participants will also have the opportunity to explore HDR and Photomerge for the creation of panoramic prints.
