Program by Ron Hasty:  Night Photography  

For the viewer to feel connected with your photos, regardless of genre, there must be an impact created through an emotion.  This is a teaching/learning program which will
illustrate tips, techniques and practices for photographing the night sky and how emotion can be elicited thorough the choice of composition.  The program is not about
astrophotography. The focus will be on equipment, smartphone apps for trip and site planning, camera settings, and composition.   The program will then focus on
Photoshop techniques for editing your night sky images. 

Here are some examples of Ron’s Work
