Brad’s program, “Photographing the Milky Way with Moonlight,” might sound counter-intuitive, but the results may surprise you. One of the most challenging aspects of night photography is capturing the dark, ambiguous landscape beneath a starry night.  Artificial lights and longer exposures can be used to help avoid this problem, but what if there was a natural way to bring life to your images?

Ben Canales - Ben is one of the earliest nightscape innovators. In 2011, he received international attention as National Geographic's Travel Photo of the Year.
