August 16th 2017 Workshop - Nicholas Isabella

Have you ever wanted to learn how to photograph the beautiful universe that surrounds us? If so, you came to the right place! Hi, my name is Nicholas Isabella and I am teaming up with fellow photographer Timothy Butler to offer an in-depth learning experience like no other. Learn how to get gorgeous photos of the Milky Way that will leave you and your friends breathless. We’ll be shooting the Milky Way from a location on Long Island (Rain date will be scheduled if needed)

The cost is $100 per person, LIMITED SPOTS AVAILABLE please contact me to secure your spot (Beginners Welcome).

Once everyone has arrived, myself and fellow photographer Timothy Butler will cover everything you need to know about photographing the night sky; including camera settings and processing recommendations. We’ll finish the night with a brief overview of what was learned, answer any questions and cover some post processing.

Join us for a night of adventure, learning and star photography

These workshops are geared to help you understand the technical aspects of your camera. Do you need prior experience in night photography to join one of these workshops? The answer is, No. However, you should have a pretty good idea how the camera operates. What does that means? It means, you should have an simple understanding of how your shutter speed, aperture and ISO work together to form your "exposure". There will not be any "auto or program" modes used for this night photography workshop. Priority modes are fine for shooting during the daylight hours, but not at night. 

Weather and Equipment

Weather can be a photographers best friend, it can also be their worse enemy at times. Night time photography is planned for nights with the least amount of cloud cover. Weather can not be predicted and we can not guarantee that the weather will be perfect during our workshops. If we encounter poor weather conditions ( ex. thunderstorms, rain, fog, etc..), we will modify the schedule. Leading up to the workshop, I will inform you of what to expect weather-wise during our stay.

Post Processing

Post processing tips and techniques are discussed during all workshops. These will apply to Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop. It's doesn't matter if you use CS2 or the current version of Photoshop. All principals apply. Learn post processing techniques in Photoshop / Lightroom to achieve beautiful results in your images. We will cover color balance, noise reduction, and controlling contrast of the image and the Milky
