Photographing the Urban Night Sky
MIT graduate student, and urban astrophotographer Evan Kramer will lead this interactive three-part series covering the basics of how to capture compelling nighttime imagery using a DSLR camera with special attention paid to conceptualization, logistical challenges, equipment, and editing processes.
Weather permitting, class participants will have the opportunity to try their hand at capturing a variety of night sky targets including the moon, planets, constellations, and the International Space Station from a rooftop at MIT with the Boston skyline in the background.
You’ll need a DSLR (or mirrorless) camera with manually-adjustable settings, a tripod, and a desire to push what’s possible in urban night and astrophotography! At the end of the course, you will have captured a set of your very own urban night and astrophotography images and be ready to explore the rest of the universe with the tips and tricks shared throughout the course.
