Special Guest Series- Photographing Planning with Keith Bauer
Of course, we all try to keep our camera close so we’re ready for the unexpected, but having a plan in place can increase your chances of getting that next great image!
Planning today with powerful mobile apps can make sure you will be in the right place at the right time. When will the sun hit at sunset exactly where we want it? How can we find those best locations? How can we plan for superior milky way photos? Other elements include sunrise/sunset times and angles, moonrise and moonset angles, as well as phases of the moon, dark sky nights for photography and Milky Way location, planning for lunar and solar eclipses, horizon for any place on the planet, and many more. Photographer Keith Bauer will show some great examples of “being ready” because a plan was in place and how to use his favorite planning app.
Very Important: This course will be presented using a specific app – PlanIt Pro. There are other similar apps, such as PhotoPills, Photo Ephemeris, and more. While Keith will be discussing the importance of PlanIt Pro and its features, please note that our emphasis will be on the planning elements–what to consider and look for before going into the field– and how these apps can help achieve that.
