Astrophotography 101 at Island Beach

June 15 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Free

 

Ben Wurst, an amateur photographer, will teach the basics of astrophotography in a free class at Island Beach State Park on June 15, 2018 from  9:00 to 11:00 p.m., at Island Beach State Park. Exact meeting location is yet to be determined, but for now it is set at the Nature Center.

During this hands-on workshop, Wurst will go over settings and techniques used to capture long exposures at night. Attendees should bring a digital SLR camera, a lens that can focus manually and a tripod. Also helpful is a remote shutter release and a headlamp/flashlight (ones with a red light are preferred).

Cloudy conditions will cancel (attendees will be emailed if weather conditions are not optimal for night sky photography).

The program is free but donations to Conserve Wildlife Foundation of NJ are welcome.

Tickets are not available as this event has passed.
