Astrophotography Workshop with SIGMA Ambassador Jack Fusco and Kenmore Camera
The goal of this workshop is for you to leave fully prepared and ready to shoot the stars on your own. Jack will be guiding you through the basics of astrophotography while also discussing some more advanced approaches. Jack will also review some basic astronomy information that will help you plan and capture great images of the stars.
Jack will lead a small group of photographers to a fantastic viewpoint of Mt. Rainier. The night will begin with an overview of the techniques discussed in the prerequisite online lecture as the group prepares to put them into practice.
What You Will Learn: We will meet on location with time to scout and plan compositions. Jack will share his personal approach to how he would plan an entire night to maximize his time shooting and ensure that he leaves with images he is excited about. The night will begin chasing as many Milky Way compositions and shooting techniques as possible and end with time to shoot star trails.
On August 2nd at 4:00PM PT, Jack will review his workflow for processing his images.

About Jack Fusco
Jack Fusco is a professional landscape astrophotographer / timelapser. What began as a way purely to document his travels as a touring musician, photography has become his main form of creative expression.
On his often-sleepless journey, he strives to share the wonder of the night sky with as many people as possible. Whether chasing the Milky Way along coast lines or capturing the Northern lights in unforgiving remote locations you’re sure to find him coffee in hand, smiling up at the stars.
Many of Jack’s images are often planned days, weeks, or even months in advance while waiting for weather and celestial objects to align. The resulting work shows a true and complete dedication to his craft.
His work has been featured by National Geographic, TEDx, LA Times, NASA APOD, BBC, Forbes and many more
