About the event

Have you ever wanted to shoot astrophotography but haven't had the opportunity or equipment to do so?

Join award-winning photographer and Sony Digital Imaging Advocate, Dylan Giannakopoulos at his Introduction to Astrophotography Workshop held at Flinders Blowhole on Saturday 2nd October 2021. Nothing quite compares to the feeling of seeing the Milky Way light up your LCD for the first time, so why not come and experience it for yourself!

At the workshop, you will learn how to:

  • Use the 500 rule to capture tack-sharp stars.  
  • Plan your astrophotography shoots around moon phases and galactic centre visibility
  • Manually focus your lens
  • Utilise compositional techniques to create eye-catching images of the Milky Way

Strictly limited to 6 attendees, the small group structure of the workshop ensures that Dylan’s able to provide plenty of one on one tuition.

After the workshop, you will be invited to join a private Facebook group that is strictly limited to past attendees of Dylan Gianna Photography Workshops. The Facebook group offers members a space to share their images, ask questions and learn tips and tricks from Dylan.

WEATHER POLICY

Astrophotography workshops are highly weather dependent. As such, the decision to cancel or postpone the workshop due to weather conditions will be made 24-48 hours prior. In the event that weather conditions change and we cannot capture astrophotography on the night, the core concepts will still be taught and other techniques such as light painting will be introduced. Guests will also be emailed a $25 Sony Scene Voucher to a future Dylan Gianna Photography Workshop.
