How To Photograph A Rocket Launch with Erik Kuna

Join Erik Kuna on location at the historic Launch Complex 39A, the epicenter of the space program, and learn everything you need to know to tell the story of a rocket launch. In this class you’ll learn about the history of space flight photography, the essential gear and camera settings you’ll need to use, how to capture breath taking streak shots, pad shots, and telephoto shots, the importance of pre-production, as well as tips and techniques for post processing all of your photos when the launch is over.

In Case You Missed It: Demystifying PhotoPills

Learn how to get the most out of PhotoPills when planning your next outdoor photography adventure! Join Erik Kuna as he explains exactly what this app can do, why photographers should care about using an app like PhotoPills, and how best utilize all of the features and functions within the app.

In this class you’ll learn the basic terminology needed to use the planner, how to use the app to plan a photo shoot based around the position of the sun, the moon, or the milky way, how to discover when the next eclipse will occur at a given location, how to perform useful calculations, and so much more! Erik even breaks down all the steps he used in planning for a variety of different photographic scenarios. By the end of the class you’ll have a whole new appreciation for the ability to plan around celestial events using PhotoPills.

We wanted to do something for all us photographers who are stuck inside with limited shooting opportunities, and so we’re making the Webinars we normally do just for KelbyOne members, available to everyone, everywhere for free until this awful virus is behind us. There’s no credit card required, no sales pitch, etc. — just a bunch of photographers getting together to work on all that stuff we said we’re going to do “once we have some spare time.” :-)

Check out the video for the type of stuff we’re going to do, but we’re kicking it off today at 11:00 AM ET with a Webinar on how to prep your images for printing at a photo lab. I’m going to cover everything from scratch, from the start all the way through uploading the file to the lab (it’s all easier than you’d think), and with now being such a great time to catch up on stuff like this, I think this will help a lot, and you’ll have some fun.

I’m even going to give away the print we’re sending to the lab during the Webinar to someone watching live today.

I’ll be taking your questions live during the Webinar, and we’ve got a lot more coming, so keep an eye out here, or follow me on social (Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook) and please tell your photography friends as everyone is welcome.

WHO: Me and you
WHAT: Free photography Webinars
WHERE: http://kelbyone.com/webcast
WHEN: The first one is today (Friday) at 11:00 AM ET
WHY: Cause we’re all stuck inside, and this is something we can do to help. :)
Keep your hands washed, look out for one another, stay healthy, and we’ll see you online later today. :)

Here’s to a safe, healthy weekend for everybody.
