Have you ever sat under the stars, gazed at the night sky and wished you could capture it? Seen photos of the milky way, looked down at your camera and wondered how on earth they did it?
If that sounds like you, then come along to the Central Library and hear Wellington based astrophotographer Mark Gee talk about his photographic journey and share his story of how he came to be the self-taught award winning photographer he is today!
Check out the hires image – link in my bio! 📸 I love exploring new locations, and was really happy when I stumbled on this place on the west coast of Wellington, New Zealand. The photo is a 54 image panorama shot with the new Canon 6d Mk II. It’s a perfect time of year in the southern hemisphere to capture the Milky Way lower in the sky to the west, so this location was perfect for it!
Mark will be talking for about 30 minutes so there will be plenty of question time as well!
