Journey with Anthony Sleiman on July 29th, 2022 under the starlit landscapes of the Everglades National Park. Creative compositions are endless in this extraordinary place. One step into this park you'll see that the magic starts after the sunset.
You will experience all the magic this location has to offer at night. The Everglades National Park is one of the darkest locations in Florida. A dark sky is a key component when setting out for astrophotography. All experience levels are welcome.
I am limiting the group size to 8 students to ensure that everyone receives our attention and to keep compositional possibilities uncluttered.
This workshop will require moderate hiking (no more than 1 mile) through rocky or muddy terrain.
During our journey in the field you will learn:
- How to see a scene from start to finish
- Finding compelling compositions and telling a story with your images
- How to work with light and how to find the best light for the scene
- Stacking stars for noise reduction
- Choosing the right settings for the scene
(aperture, shutter speed, ISO, white balance)
- How to choose a focal length and creative ways to use lens distortion
- Tips & Tricks for focusing at night
- Adding the human element
What is Included?
• 1 hour Online Training via Google Meets
•4 hours of in-field instructions to capture the beauty of the night sky
•The online portion of the course is scheduled for Wednesday, before the workshop at 7 pm via google meets.
•On the day of the workshop, we will meet up at 9:00 pm on Friday, July 29th in the Everglades National Park where we will shoot for about 4-5 hours
In case of bad weather, the Workshop will be rescheduled for the night after or the week after.
By the end of the workshop, you’ll be able to produce high-quality images that you’ll be proud to hang on your wall!

Great night of learning!
Anthony is a great teacher! He really takes time with each participant to make sure they are getting the shot. He helps with settings and determining composition and clarity. It was a great experience and I would highly recommend a workshop with Anthony.

Discovering the everglades
This workshop took me out of my comfort zone without the scary part. Anthony is very good at explaining everything about the park, it’s nature and of course, the main attraction the stars. The portraits were amazing and I loved watching him work and learning all about how to shoot at night. I recommend him to everyone, even if you don’t know anything about photography you’ll enjoy it!
