One of DH hobbies is Astronomy (that is good, he is always ahead of me in toys so I don't feel guilty and can never catch up to him). Anyway, he is involved in the committee for this year's national conference in Bryce Canyon National Park. I want to take night pics and that will involve a tripod and long exposure time. I am so excited to learn and to also take photos of the crowd!! Astronomers use red lights to see at night and walk around because red does not affect the retina and they can still see the stars clearly. They surround their telescopes and the bases with red led ropes so others do not trip on the telescopes.
Anyway, point me to night photography tutorials. Katrina . . . anyone . . .? I know that I can google this but I hope that someone who speaks "simple" can help me.
