"Shoot for the moon and if you miss you will still be among the stars. Les Brown"

There is very little that is as awe inspiring as the milky way and this workshop will give you all the information you need to capture it.

The workshop covers:

  • Setting your camera in full manual to expose the night sky
    • How to focus in the dark
    • Exposure times to achieve pin point stars
    • Exposure settings and techniques to achieve star trails
    • Exposing for the foreground
    • Blending multiple exposures in Photoshop


The workshop runs over two nights.


We will generally depart Melbourne late afternoon to arrive at the location. Each workshop is held somewhere different so please see the locations indicated in the details below.

Once at our destination, we'll run through the theory on how to achieve the best results from your camera. We'll break for dinner (not included) and then head to our actual location for our shoot.

Starting times vary depending on the time of year and the position of the Milky Way.


Day 2 involves a 3 hour session on working with your RAW files through Lightroom to bring out the Milky Way.

We spend the day taking in some daylight landscape opportunities, break again for dinner and then back out for a second night of shooting.


It's back on the bus for a return trip to Spencer Street Station.
