Gearing up and heading out to shoot the stars is becoming an ever increasing pursuit for many photographers today. Are you ready to not only get out under the stars but take the best images you can?

In this program, we will discuss the dynamic range of a nightscape, shooting for the most depth of field, reducing noise in a finished image, and how to combine multiple long exposures for image stacking or to create an amazing panoramic image.

Meet JT Blenker:  JT Blenker turned the trip of a lifetime traveling through out the country into a career in photography focusing on our sky’s, elusive for many, Milky Way Galaxy. His professional journey has gone from working for some of the most prestigious Fortune 500 companies to becoming a landscape and night sky photographer that’s created engaging workshops where the focus is on developing aspiring photographers into even better artists. The core tenets for every workshop is seeing and understanding light, becoming a creator with intention, and making images into finished art. He is currently staff writer for Fstoppers and now can contribute to the photographic and artistic community on an incredible scale and hopes to grow more as a speaker, writer, and educator. Lastly, continuing education is paramount to any student of photography and he has earned his Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) certification in 2016 and has earned the degree of Photographic Craftsman (Cr. Photog.) in 2018.
