It was well thought out by Sue, with specific prompts/challenges/techniques to focus on in each location, but also the freedom to get creative with our own ideas. Sue was careful to check in often with each participant and offer help and advice where needed.

The Astro Photography Group Session was a great introduction and good starting point for someone like me with little experience with this type of photography. Ryan is a friendly instructor who lead the group well and catered for photographers with a range of experience. It was a fun, informative evening and for a beginner, I came away with range of images I am happy with.
