Photo Workshops

MAPS offers free workshops in an effort to expand our members’ educational opportunities.  These workshops are presented by MAPS members who are generously donating their time and expertise.  All MAPS members in good standing can sign up for any of these workshops.

  • To make a suggestion on how we can improve this effort, please click here.
  • You don’t need to be an expert to present at a workshop, just have a willingness to share some knowledge.  If you are interested in doing so, please contact Bob Duke.

We make various handouts/notes from the workshops available to all MAPS members.  Please click here.

MAPS Workshop – Astrophotography Part 2

Steve Bush will be presenting a second workshop on Astrophotography at our February workshop.  This workshop, like the previous one, will be focused on near field astrophotography, primarily the Milky Way.

Steve will go over basic planning (where & when), taking of the images and processing workflow.  He will begin with a very brief review of the material from September for those that need a refresher or that missed that workshop.

This workshop is focused on capturing “point of light” images.  He will not cover “star trails”, which is a more complex subject.

When:  Tuesday, February 19th, 6:30-9:00 pm
Where:  Classroom B, Thornhill
