The night sky makes up half of our environment. It glows with light, color, movement and drama, yet many outdoor photographers believe that there’s little to shoot after dark. In this presentation, Mammana will show some of his classic images, and will explain how he creates magnificent one-of-a-kind celestial portraits with even the most basic of equipment. He will demystify the art of shooting the heavens, and will present some of his specialized shooting techniques, personal anecdotes, composition and lighting tricks, pitfalls & bloopers, and more—all aimed at inspiring photographers to capture the cosmos! Please visit his website at www.DennisMammana.com for more information.
