Getting Nerdy With Night Photography – Adam Woodworth Episode 71

static1.squarespace.comThe first time Adam Woodworth joined me on the Photography Roundtable Podcast, we barely had the chance to get into the technical side of night photography. You can only talk about so much in a thirty minute window. Thankfully, Adam agreed to come on the show again in such a short amount of time. Since this is Adam’s second time on the show, he joins guests like Ian Plant and Colby Brown (his second appearance is a future episode) as repeat guests.

In this episode, things get serious fast. After a quick shameless plug for our joint night photography workshop, Adam quickly starts sharing tips for everything about night photography that could be considered nerdy and technical. But, it was oh so good!

Not only are you going to learn about the best and most essential pieces of gear you need for night photography, but you’ll also learn some post processing tips, focus stacking, star stacking, and even a clever tip that not everyone thinks about.

What’s in this episode?

  • Adam and I reveal our workshop that will be in Acadia National Park (May 2016)
  • The best gear (and most essential) for night photography
  • A few top lenses for night photography
  • How to get the night sky in one shot
  • How to combine images of the night sky
  • Blending strategies for night photography
  • The secret of star stacking
  • Adam’s secret for better photography results

  1. Yeah, that Rokinon 12mm f/2 is an amazing tool for anyone wanting to get into astro without breaking their bank, or their back. On an A6000, it really kicks butt. As someone who does a lot of timelapse work and not just general astro-landscape stills, I love being able to pack 3+ cameras into the wilderness, LOL…
