Open to all levels.  For first timers–remember we are all in the dark!–be familiar with changing ISO, f-stop, and shutter settings; practice for basic working understanding of making long exposures.  All of this helps you in the dark.

Dale will have initial suggestions for camera settings and basic night time photography to get us started photographing the night sky and the Milky Way.

People will need the following:

Digital SLR
Wide angle lens
Headlamp or flashlight

Preparing Images for Print
and the  Basics for getting the best from your images

Read more about Jerry Osborn below.

I am a Colorado native and received my BA from WSC in Gunnison, CO. Additional education in Computer Graphics from UCLA Extension in Westwood California and Advertising Design/Special effects Photography from Pasadena Art Institute gave me my start in the digital printing and digital imaging industry. I spent 16 years working with a company in Hollywood, CA. having daily interactions with all the major Advertising Agencies who represented industries such as, autos, clothing, beverages, food, TV networks, the movie industry and many more.

This company gave me the opportunity to set-up Pre-Production and Production facilities in Australia, Brazil, Holland and Pre-Production offices in Miami, New York and Detroit. The experience I gained by working with an incredible management team, high profile clients, Art Directors and print managers fueled my passion for digital imaging.


Today, I offer Large Format Digital printing to Photographers/Artist and Fine Art Reproduction to Artist. In addition, I am Adobe Certified with Photoshop and enjoy teaching one-on-one and small classes.

I personally enjoy shooting a variety of subject matter with varied techniques and printing on a variety of materials for quality and unique visual presentation.
