Shoot the Milky Way with Monika Deviat   SOLD OUT

FRIDAY APRIL 21 ….. but really it is SATURDAY APRIL 22 AT 2:00AM
Spring is a fantastic time to capture the Milky Way core rising in Banff National Park. The mountains are snow-capped, and the snow reflects starlight beautifully. With the early rise of the arc, compositions line up wonderfully with mountains in the Banff area.

Channel your inner night owl and join Monika for an unforgettable night of shooting the stars over Banff.

During the workshop, Monika will assist with focusing in the dark, figuring out your compositions with no light, and setting suggestions. Monika has extensive experience shooting at night in the area and will share some planning tips which you can use when you are home or travelling and want to capture the world at night.

The workshop will include transportation to the shooting location and light snack.

What to Bring:
 Camera
 Lens(es) – wider is generally better at night (i.e. 14-24mm) and faster (f2.8>)
