Star trails

AUGUST 25 or 26   |   REMAUFENS

Photo Walk / Workshop - intensive 3 hours photography class for camera people.

Different topics, different locations, great experience and fantastic pictures.

Theme: Star trails & night sky

We will cover:

  • what are star trails and where to look for them

  • shooting star trails

  • more about night photography / stars

  • tough low light conditions and how to focus

  • composite shots (how to create one image from several shots)

We are planning this Photo walk soon after a new moon, so it will be all about the star trails, however small amount of moon light will help us to lighten the scene.

​Interested? Contact us: 

* We have few tripods to borrow, if you need one, let us know in advance

** To photograph star trails, cable remote control is a great tool for your camera. You can get them very cheap when buying online. And knock off versions for a fraction of the price works very well for years. Consult your manual, google your camera type together with "cable release" or contact us for support. Each type of camera has specific connector, so you have to buy for your camera. Here's an example for some Canon cameras. In case you will not have cable release, we will "hack" the camera and will find a working solution...
