ASTRO WORKSHOP WITH CHRIS PEGMAN

WHANGAREI HEADS – NOVEMBER 15TH
5PM DINNER AND DRINKS – 7PM WORKSHOP START

Our next event is a road trip to the sunny North for a hands on workshop. We’ve been planning this one for a while and are happy to be taking an event to our Northland members.

One genre of photography currently trending is Astro photography and light painting. We’ve all seen that cosmic imagery. Chris Pegman of Kerikeri, has had particular success with these types of nightscapes and he is one of the leaders in this field. He has won numerous international and NZIPP Iris awards with his mesmerising work and is currently exhibiting at The Waitangi Treaty Grounds Museum gallery. He has been kind enough to offer his expertise to NZIPP to talk us through his technique and take us out on an actual shoot to get results for ourselves.

We will be meeting from 5pm to socialise over dinner and drinks at the Parua Bay Tavern, with its $10 million views (Tom the manager proudly tells me). The tavern is only 20 minutes out of Whangarei, toward the Heads on the main road, 1034 Whangarei Heads Road. It’s full of character, and is the perfect spot for our event to begin. The event itself will begin from 7pm ish. We will then head out to the stunning Ocean Beach or Patau South depending on what the weather, skies and light (or dark) is offering us. There is plenty of accommodation in the area for those wanting to stay overnight, please book this yourself and at your own cost. This event is open for anyone to attend. It’s free for NZIPP members and their partners, and only $25 (NZIPP subsidized) for any non members. You’re welcome to come and see what the NZIPP is all about.

Here is bit of a check list of what to bring:
A good DSLR camera. (surprise surprise)
Flash (it’s recommended to have an orange gel over the flash for better warmth and skin tones)
Prime lenses are always better
Tripod. A headlamp, preferably LED
Torch Light painters
$2 hand warmers, great for lens fogging prevention and keeping warm
Warm clothes, beanie etc
