For millennia, humans have gazed up at the night sky in wonder. But it’s only been in recent history that we’ve been able to capture images of it in photos. Night sky photography is one of the most rewarding—and most challenging—pursuits for the nature photographer. From pinpoint focus on stars in astrophotography to conveying the vibrant color and sense of motion of the aurora borealis, nighttime photography can be one of the more complicated art forms. But the gratification it brings is worth the effort to learn how to create images of phenomena not easily seen by the naked eye. And we’ve got the expertise to help! Join photo pro Court Whelan for guidance on how to capture those otherworldly scenes after dark, with recommendations for special gear and specific techniques. Whether it’s the Milky Way, the northern lights, or mystical moon shots you’re after, come along for a grand tour of all you need to know about night photography.
