Photographing the Full Harvest Moonrise

FREE Members only event.

Presented by RASC members Alister Ling and Luca Vanzella.

If you have always wanted to photograph the Full Moon rising above a scenic landscape but you aren’t sure how to do it – this Astro Café is for you! Veteran Full Moon shooters Alister Ling and Luca Vanzella will guide you through all of the steps necessary to get that perfect shot.

This Astro Café is designed for people that own a DSLR (Digital Single-Lens Reflex) camera – we won’t be using any phone or point-and-shoot cameras. Some familiarity with your DSLR camera is beneficial but not absolutely required.
