Mike Shaw, photographer, author and workshop leader

Level: Intermediate
Come howl at the moon! Here’s your chance to learn the secrets of photographing the full moon and other night sky treasures over the winter scenery of the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. Normally closed to the public, you’ll have exclusive access to the Arboretum grounds after dark in this special workshop led by night photography expert Dr. Mike Shaw. You’ll have two evenings to refine your moon photography techniques along with an afternoon of learning night photography and astronomy. A box dinner is included each night.
REQUIRED EQUIPMENT: Moderate to long focal length lenses will be most useful for moonscapes (35 – 200 mm); telephoto lenses for moon close-ups (200 mm and up). A sturdy tripod is essential along with a cable or wireless remote shutter release. A headlamp with a red bulb or small flashlight with red cellophane covering is also important to protect your night vision. Bring your camera operating manual and spare batteries.
NOTE: Since the 3 Mile Drive will be closed, you will be doing some walking along the drive. Proper clothing, hat & gloves, hand warmers and footwear are recommended.
Class will be held in any safe weather condition, rain, snow or {moon} shine. In case of cloudy conditions, the instructor will engage the class in hands-on activities to develop photographic skills and knowledge on astronomy/field planning/photography, so that you will be prepared to leverage your knowledge and skills when a clear night opportunity arises!
