Hello and thank you for your interest in my Milky Way workshops. These field workshops are typically held in areas on the beach in southern New Jersey such as Avalon or Barnegat, Montauk Long Island, or the Catskills, New York. They typically run from after sunset in the late summer/fall until sunrise or after midnight until sunrise in the spring.
We cover all areas of night shooting, for example, we discuss how to focus and compose in dark, and the proper exposures for the milky way and foreground. We also will go over post-processing in the morning.
Price includes several hours of shooting, and my transportation costs to and from the site. Most darker areas involve 3 to 6 hours of travel time.
Fast wide angles lens such as the Rokinon 14 mm 2.8 or 1.4, DSLR full frame or crop sensor. Tripod and remote are required.
Milky Way workshops are usually available around the new moon or the weekend before or after deepening on the time between milky way rise and moon rise/set times.
