LEARNING TO SEE - A NIGHT PHOTOWALK

Join local photographer Grant Kaye in the beautiful Martis Valley in Truckee under the Milky Way as we cover fundamentals of photographing our Galaxy on a dark night with a digital SLR camera before the moon rises at 12:10AM. Grant will share with you strategies and techniques such as how to plan for shooting the core of the galaxy with the Smartphone App, The Photographer's Ephemeris, shooting the Milky Way over landscape elements and shooting multiple exposures to later blend them together. 

We will meet at 9:30 PM in the Martis Valley Wildlife Area parking lot, between Truckee and Northstar, go over gear, and then shoot from 9:30 to 11:30pm.

Headlamp

NOTE: 
This class has a minimum sign-up of five (5) participants to run. In the event the class is cancelled, all participants will be notified 24 hours in advance. Please read our cancellation policy. Students must be able to comfortably and safely walk over uneven ground on a mostly level hiking trail, which may be covered in snow, ice, and/or mud. Students will be required to sign a liability waiver to participate in this class. As this class takes place in the outdoors, it is subject to weather. If the weather forecast is determined to be unsafe or not conducive to photography, students will be notified as far in advance of the class as possible. The alternative date for this class is the next day. If the alternative date is not suitable to your schedule, or if both dates experience inclement weather, Atelier will offer you a voucher towards a future workshop equal in value to the cost of this one.


ABOUT GRANT KAYE

Hawai`i-born photographer Grant Kaye left a career in volcano geology in New Zealand and relocated to Truckee, California in 2008, where he eventually became a full-time photographer and educator. Grant specializes in landscape and night-sky photography, motion-controlled timelapse, and creative dSLR filmmaking. He loves to teach other people how to achieve their creative photographic vision. Grant joined the Mountain Workshops in Kentucky as their timelapse coach in 2013 and 2014, and he also taught photography at Nevada's Shooting the West Workshops in 2015, 2016, and 2017. Grant is happiest making photographs where the division between technology and art is blurred - pushing the limits of what his gear is capable of to create unique images that evoke the emotional connection everyone has with nature and art, especially when they don't realize it.
