Jesse Summers Leads Astrophotography Classes for YExplore Yosemite Adventures

Join renowned photographer Jesse Summers for a chance to learn the most difficult and one of the most exciting facets of outdoor photography: night landscapes with the stars overhead. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to capture remarkable sunrises and sunsets, learn about the basics of landscape photography composition, post-processing, and some basic astronomy to help you prepare for your photography experience. You'll re-learn photography’s “infernal triangle” of aperture, ISO, and shutter speed as it relates to landscape astrophotography as well as covering the principles behind blended exposure images.

Jesse Summers is a Florida-Based landscape photographer who specializes the newly developing niche of night landscape astrophotography. Composing scenes at twilight on nights where the conditions perfectly align, Jesse is able to incorporate the stunning center of the Milky Way galaxy into his landscape photos through the use of creative long-exposure imagery. These photos are among the most difficult and most rewarding landscape photos to capture, as working at night is essential.
