About this Talk

Night Rocket Photography. It might sound like something you would never get to do, but photographing a rocket launch at night isn’t as hard as it looks. Plus, now that we’re launching over 100 rockets per year worldwide from dozens of spaceports spanning five continents, you might be closer than you think to being able to capture it.

In this class Erik Kuna will break down how to plan, scout, set up and capture a nighttime rocket launch. From the iconic “streak” shots to the newly emerging boost back “nebulas” and SpaceX rocket landings, we’ll cover all aspects of night rocket photography that anyone can capture.

Plus, Erik will take it to the next level and talk about how to go past the basics and capture these events up close. Then, we’ll take it beyond that and get creative by making pictures we could capture only with our minds up until now. We’ll break down how to blend and composite shots for truly one-of-a-kind images that are sure to wow even Elon Musk.
