One more post before I leave for the Oregon Star Party: On Saturday, August 13, the first ever Portland PhotoFair will be held, and I will be a guest speaker (see https://4photofair.wordpress.com/special-guests-and-dealers/). PhotoFair began in California’s Bay Area in 1975 and continues to do annual shows there, as well as satellite shows in other cities.
My presentation is titled “Astro-Photography for the Terrestrial Photographer” and is an introduction to AP aimed specifically at experienced photographers. It will have a brief introduction covering astronomy equipment and concepts, then jump into specific techniques for photographing several types of night sky images.
I will also have a booth at PhotoFair showing my work representing the Rose City Astronomers with information about amateur astronomy.
Thanks to PhotoFair for inviting me! If you are in the Portland area, and especially if you are interested in photography gear, this is the place to be on August 13th.
