About This Class

Many photographers often limit themselves to photographing only the things they can see. In this class I'm focusing on photographing things invisible to the naked eye. In this class you'll learn the basics of astrophotography.

This class will cover how to find good locations for astrophotography, what gear to use, what settings to use, techniques to get the most out of your gear, and how to edit the images you capture.

This class is geared toward all types of photographers that at least have a basic understanding of how their cameras work.

Jay (Trxlation)

Photographer

Going by the artist name Trxlation, I'm a published, award winning photographer living in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I specialize in portraits, landscape, and product photography. I've worked with brands like Google, Spotify, Coca-Cola, and more. My first taste of art was in 2012 when I started drawing- from there I progressed into photography. My goal with photography is to show people how I see the world. My vision is like a foreign language to others and my photography is the translation.
