Tips for shooting the night sky. NOT my photo. Please share so others can learn.
Do you want to shoot the night sky?
If you like this post, please share so others can learn
Tutorial list at bottom of post

It's been a while since I've posted a list of my tutorials on G+
One thing that I've always thought is that the internet and a bit of knowledge is a wonderful thing in the right hands.
Learning night sky photography or as others call it, landscape astrophotography is a wonderful but sometimes taxing experience.  My journey was made easier through the internet.  Others that were willing to share some of what others had taught them, or they learned over hours and hours of trial and error (I've experienced both to get where I am).
In what I feel is the spirit of G+ I have always shared knowledge with fellow photographers and those wishing to start learning how to shoot at night.
Believe me, I'm not saying that workshops are a waste of time, in fact quite the opposite.  You can only learn so much from reading.  
Perhaps those interested in night sky shooting should keep there eyes on my stream as there are some potential opportunities for a workshop or two in 2014.

I believe this is a Snowy Owl. Her feathers are beautiful and her golden eyes are mesmerizing. Woodland Park Zoo, Seattle, Wa, USA.

We shall not cease from exploration. And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.
