The Art Of Night Photography: Learning to Capture the Cosmos


The Art Of Night Photography: Learning to Capture the Cosmos

June 16 2021

If you’ve ever taken your camera outside at night, you know that photographing the stars, northern lights and other astronomical objects requires some knowledge and skill.

In this webinar, you’ll learn about astrophotography and how to clearly capture the beauty of the night sky.

Back by popular demand after our Chasing the Northern Lights webinar, photographer Justin Anderson goes in-depth to teach you the tools needed to take phenomenal photos at night. He discusses camera settings, techniques and equipment and explains how to scout locations that are ideal for night photography.

There’s never been a better chance to get outside and explore the night sky. We are having a particularly good year for northern lights viewings due to the sun’s cycle and an increase in activity. And after more than a year of pandemic shutdowns, it’s a great way to get off the couch at night.
