Oregon Nightscapes Photography Workshop

One of the most memorable nights I’ve ever had photographing the Milky Way was over the Oregon coast last spring. The stars hung like curtains over a stunning landscape, and when I got home the photos went viral.

It is this experience that I want to share with you on the Oregon Photography Workshop – Nightscapes!

Milky Way Editing TutorialAlso included with all of my night photography workshops is a FREE copy of my Milky Way Editing Tutorial. In this tutorial I cover everything from camera settings, to exposure blending, and most importantly – how I get the Milky Way to pop in my images. This tutorial will help you get the most out of processing the beautiful nightscapes we will photograph.

Oregon Photography Workshop - NightscapesPhotography Equipment

  • A digital camera (don’t forget your memory cards and charger!)
  • A *sturdy* tripod with a ball head. I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to have a solid tripod. Many people spend thousands of dollars on cameras and lenses, and mount their gear on a flimsy $60 tripod. If you invested money in a camera, don’t risk damaging it by putting it on a tripod that won’t stand up to wind and weather!
  • Spare batteries for your camera (especially if you’re a Sony shooter!)
  • A wide angle lens (16-35 mm is ideal – you will find that 14mm is a bit too wide)
  • Recommended: A camera remote

Where to stay and getting around

You can stay in either Cannon Beach or Astoria (it is about a 45 minute drive from Cannon Beach to Astoria). Both of these places are small, bustling towns with a handful of hotels and B&Bs. It’s probably best to book early to ensure you get a room.

You’ll also need a vehicle to get to all of the locations. If you would like to carpool we can try our best to accommodate but please note that transportation is not included in the workshop.
