Next Level Full Moon Photography Workshop

Listen to the automated audio version of this article:

What is a Full Moon Photography workshop? I’m sure by now you have seen that NASA often publishes striking images of the full moon aligned with famous landmarks. There’s a photo by an Italian photographer published a couple of months ago that has become quite famous. And for good reasons, because the alignment is simply spot on. Something that obviously requires lots of knowledge and preparation.
Well, these things can be taught. And I happen to be doing just that. So, now it’s your time to capture such photos and be famous.

About this event

Join me, Fabien Butazzi (@fabienb — Gurushots Travel Photographer of the Year), at this Astrophotography workshop in London and learn how to capture a striking image of the full moon (or a Supermoon or a lunar eclipse, if we’re lucky).

The full moon is a very powerful and energising time, and this can be a mindful moment for photographers too (and lead to creative writing). Come to escape the hustle and bustle of the day and indulge in the peaceful energy of the moon.
It will be my pleasure to guide you on an exciting journey as you immerse yourself in Astrophotography. Feel the stress melt away as you soak in the moon’s healing energy, or channel and vent your anger at the clouds when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

Whether you’re a seasoned photographer or just starting out, this event promises inspiration, learning, and the chance to create beautiful images against the famous skyline of London.
Don’t miss this opportunity to hone your Astrophotography skills and capture the essence of the London nights!

Content:

  • Learn how to plan for the moment
  • Identify locations with interesting subjects for your perfect alignment
  • Tips&Tricks to shoot Astrophotography and Timelapse
  • Holy Grail, day-to-night timelapse (when relevant)
  • Master composition and framing to improve your photos
  • Editing and Postprocessing techniques to achieve the final photo of your dreams
  • Learn about the lunar events and the best times to capture the moon
  • Your host speaks English, Italian and French fluently (and is learning Spanish), so you can all join this event, even if you’re only in London for a quick holiday!

The event is designed for a small group of participants, between 4 and 8. Having such a small number of participants allows me to better accommodate your requests and needs, as well as answer all your questions.
Also, shooting Astrophotography means we all occupy more ground with our tripods, and the space to take photos is often limited.

I believe in the power of exploring, learning, and connecting with others who share the same passions. Think of these events as mini-adventures that bring people together and let them see their surroundings in a whole new light, or moonlight in this case.

Note that the weather in the UK can be very unreliable. Therefore, even if the event starts with the best premises, we can still go back home disappointed. There is a good example of that at the end of my YouTube video here.

Necessary equipment:

  • Camera (any make or model), ideally with manual functions
  • Telephoto lens – as a bare minimum, 200mm (full frame equivalent).
    I personally shoot with Fujifilm, so, to give you an idea, the 70-300mm, the 100-400mm, and the 150-600mm are all great choices with this system. Of course, you can always extend your lens with a teleconverter.
  • Fully charged batteries and empty memory card(s).
  • Tripod (sturdy enough to hold the weight of the telephoto lens)
  • Comfortable shoes and suitable clothing for the weather. Consider that temperatures may drop significantly, so bring an extra layer.
