Milky Way over Lower Fox School House
Photographing the Kansas Night Sky at the Lower Fox School House in the Flint Hills
June 22, 2020
Join Craig McCord of Creative Light as he hosts this workshop of the Kansas night sky at the Lower Fox Creek School House at the Tall Grass Prairie National Preserve in the Flint Hills of Kansas. We will photograph this popular location during a new moon phase, providing an ideal conditions for photographing the night sky. To get warmed up we will catch a flint hills sunset. As the sky darkens we will continue to work photographing star trails above the school house and engage in some light painting fun. After star trails, we will reposition to compose for the Milky Way. Craig will provide hands on assistance to help ensure all come away with meaningful and rewarding captures of star trails and Milky Way images.
As we prepare for our shoot we will discuss
Star trails; Milky Way
Light Painting tools and techniques
Craig will actively work with each participant to ensure you understand the technical considerations to enable you to come away with some striking images.
