2019 Flagstaff Star Party Night Sky Photography Workshop

This extraordinary opportunity will allow participants to learn how to photograph the night sky with a master. New York-based Stan Honda was a photojournalist for 34 years, most recently for Agence France-Presse (AFP). Although he has photographed a wide array of subjects over the years, he has a special passion for starry skies and night landscapes, combining his interests in astronomy and photography. He has worked as an artist-in-residence at six national parks, and his photography of Chaco Culture National Historical Park in New Mexico and Wupatki National Monument were used in reports that led to them both being designated as International Dark Sky Parks. Mr. Honda will conduct a three-part workshop introducing basic techniques to capture beautiful night sky photos with modern digital cameras.

The three-hour+ session will include a short slideshow of Mr. Honda’s work, learning about your camera and how to photograph the night sky, and in-the-field instruction and photography.
