Join Arts Center East and the Vernon Parks and Recreation Department as we welcome nationally recognized lighthouse photographer David Zapatka for a two-night workshop at Fox Tower! Students of the workshop being held during the new moon phase on July 29 and 30 will attempt to photograph the rising Milky Way over the town monument.
The workshop group will meet July 29 at 8:00pm at the Fox Hill Tower in Vernon (210 South Street, Vernon, CT 06066). As the sun is setting, a grounds survey will take place to decide camera and lighting placements. The best stars start to appear 90 minutes after sunset as the Milky Way moves across the horizon. If we are successful on the 29th, the group will meet and edit the photos at 8pm on July 30 at Art Center East.
