Astrophotography Workshop

Astrophotography Workshop

Presented by Flagstaff Arts Council at Coconino Center for the Arts

Begin at the Coconino Center for the Arts with a presentation on best practices for night shooting. We will discuss a range of topics including how to find a dark sky area and preparing for the shot, an overview of camera and lens settings, how to focus a lens in the dark and recommendations for framing a capture. We will discuss moon cycles and the procession of the milky ways position and how it will relate to your shots. There will be a demo on a typical night sky edit as well as a look at exposure blending and why it is important for night photography.

What you will need to bring:

DSLR or Mirrorless Camera that can capture in RAW format (no point and shoots)

Fully charged camera battery (I’d recommend a backup)

Wide angle lens of at least 24mm and an aperture of f2.8 or faster.

Memory card


A headlamp that can be set to RED
If you do not have a tripod or headlamp, one can be rented for an additional fee
