When I lead night photography tours, the main thing everyone wants to do is shoot star trails. Yet I find that most people don’t fully understand even the basics of shooting and putting together a star-trail image. It’s understandable, considering all the steps you have to take. While it’s all very simple, if you mess up on just one step in the process, you can kiss your star trails goodbye.

I designed this class to help you get through the process as painlessly as possible. We’ll discuss everything you need to know to make great star-trail images, including how to use the dreaded intervalometers that everyone is afraid of.

As a bonus, you’ll receive a cheat sheet that goes through all the steps you need to take. Keep this in your pack and refer to it when you shoot so you never miss a step.

Classes are recorded and video will be available to all participants.

PREREQUISITES

This class is an introduction to shooting star trails. You need only a basic understanding of general post processing to attend. However, before you can shoot star trails, you must learn how to adjust the aperture, shutter speed, and ISO on your camera, as well as how to turn autofocus on and off and how to navigate the menu settings.

NOTES FOR ALL ONLINE CLASSES

You will receive an email with a link and details about joining the class. You will see my computer screen and will see me and hear me speak. You can choose to have your microphone and camera enabled so other attendees can see and hear you. You can ask questions at any time. If you do not have audio you can ask questions or make comments using the chat feature.

CANCELLATION POLICY

Online classes are non-refundable. However, if you are unable to attend, you will still receive the class recording so you can watch it at your convenience.

Online classes have a different checkout system from other items on this site. If you want to register for a class and also add either a product, photo tour, or Private Online Workshop, you will need to checkout for the online class separately. Also, if you wish to register for more than one class, you will need to register for them separately.
