After the success of our Nightscapes and Time-Lapses video course, we now take you into the Deep Sky!

You’ll learn how to turn your raw camera images into beautiful publication-quality photos, with simple yet powerful processing steps. The focus is on using DSLR and mirrorless cameras, then processing with Adobe Photoshop, avoiding the complexity and steep learning curves demanded by specialized CCD cameras and astronomy software.

Nightscapes and Time-Lapses Video Course


Our set of tutorial videos shows you how to shoot and process great nightscape images and time-lapse movies of the night sky.

The course consists of three programs totalling 4 hours of instruction.

We take you from an urban location, then out to rural scenic sites to show you how to shoot the full range of images possible – from moonrises in the city, to moonlit star trail scenes in the country, then to Milky Way nightscapes at remote dark-sky sites.

In the studio we discuss what equipment to buy, and how to process images using Lightroom, Camera Raw, and Photoshop, all using non-destructive techniques such as adjustments layers and masks.

The series will take you on a step-by-step progression from easy to more challenging subjects and techniques. You’ll start out as a novice but end up an expert.

Free video tutorials

How to Photograph the Northern Lights

In this free 24-minute video tutorial, shot in the field and in the studio, I illustrate how to photograph and process images and time-lapse movies of the Northern Lights, the aurora borealis. The advice is also applicable to the Southern Lights, the aurora australis – the two phenomena are identical.


How to Photograph Moonlit Nightscapes

In my free 28-minute tutorial I take you from “field to final,” to illustrate how to shoot, then process nightscape images taken by the light of the Moon, images that put the stars into a blue sky above well-lit landscapes.


How to Photograph Star Trails

In my free 35-minute tutorial I take you from “field to final,” to illustrate how to shoot, then process star trails, both as still images and as time-lapse movies of the turning night sky.
