"Nightscapes, Astrophotography & the Milky Way"
Gearing up and heading out to shoot the stars is becoming an ever increasing pursuit for many photographers today. Are you ready to not only get out under the stars but take the best images you can? In this talk, JT will discuss the dynamic range of a nightscape shooting for the most depth of field, reducing noise in a finished image, and how to combine multiple long exposures for image stacking or to create an amazing panoramic.
JT Blenker turned the trip of a lifetime traveling throughout the country into a career in photography focusing on our sky's elusive for many, Milky Way Galaxy,. His professional journey has gone from working for some of the most prestigious Fortune 500 companies to becoming a landscape and night sky photographer that has created engaging workshops where the focus is on developing aspiring photographers into even better artists. The core tenets for every workshop is seeing and understanding light, becoming a creator with intention and making images into artistry. JT realized that passion, family and happiness are the cornerstones of living a great life. Becoming engaged with PPA's national, state and local affiliates has allowed him to build heartfelt relationships with some of the best photographers alive today. He recently became a staff writer for Fstoppers where he can continue to contribute to the photographic and artistic community and hopes to grow more as a speaker, writer, and educator.
