Nighttime photography done well is a tricky endeavor. Learn from a master the techniques and equipment needed to produce stunning nighttime landscape images that include a dazzling starry night sky. Featured in Time Magazine, the self-described unabashed astro-nut David Lane ranks among the top 5 astrophotographers in the world. Eleven of his mesmerizing images are archived on NASA’s informative website, Astronomy Picture of the Day. https://apod.nasa.gov Pictures: An Airglow Fan from Lake to Sky, The Milky Way Over the Arizona Toadstools, and Milky Way over Devils Tower.


For about 2 weeks each month from April to September, Dave combs the Western U.S. looking for clear skies and great foregrounds. In a typical ten-day trip he will travel over 6,000 miles searching for that absolute epic shot! See Dave’s work on display at Raven’s Heart Gallery in Kanab.


Using numerous examples of his work, Dave will teach you the techniques and equipment required to capture telescopic deep space images and how some of that technique crosses over to Milky Way landscape images. Bring your curiosity and questions about camera equipment, use of telescopes choosing subject matter, optimum sky conditions and more, and take home the knowledge you’ll need to shoot your very own images!


This event is being hosted by Amazing Earthfest, a 501c3 nonprofit organization based in Kanab, Utah, offering fascinating learning events to celebrate America’s National Parks, Forests, Monuments and Public Lands. In southwest Utah, public lands are abundant, traffic is light, the air is clean, scenery is spectacular and night skies are gorgeous!


Earthfest, with annual support from Kane County, encourages you to explore other activities available in the region through the Kane County Office of Tourism at VisitSouthernUtah.com. Plan a “staycation” during the winter months to enjoy Kanab’s mild winter weather and clear, starry nights, perfect for astrophotography.


Our festival is made possible through your tax-deductible contributions.  We need your support!  Please consider making a one-time $20 donation when you register to attend.
