This workshop will introduce you to the basics of night and astrophotography. Topics such as equipment, camera settings, location, post-processing, focusing in the dark, composing in the dark, and painting with light will be discussed. You will also have the opportunity to view and photograph the moon using a telescope on El Camino College’s rooftop observatory. No professional photography experience required--just a love of photography and admiration for our night skies! Bring any type of camera--phones included.
