Astrophotography Presented by Jack Eyler of St. James Plantation Photo Club

Wikipedia defines Astrophotography as a specialized type of photography for recording photos of astronomical objects, celestial events, and large areas of the night sky. Our presenter, Jack Eyler, has been working with Astrophotography for over a year and is looking forward to sharing what he has learned with our club. Some of the topics he will discuss include:

  • Challenges of astrophotography
  • Preplanning and basic equipment needs
  • How long of an exposure you can have before you start getting star trails at focal length used
  • Test shots to determine best ISO to use
  • Some light painting
  • Helpful apps and websites

    Jack Eylers interest in photography began in 1970 in high school when he took his first photography class. He then continued with photography either by working in the field or just as a hobby. He furthered his education by earning an AS degree in photography after he retired from the Air Force in 1994. While living in Virginia, many of his photographs of fishing were published with articles in Bassmasters Magazine, Outdoor Life and a local paper, the Old Towne Cryer. His anonymous claim to fame is a photograph of the invasive Asian snakehead fish, which is probably the most published and viewed photograph of this species in the world.

    After moving to NC five years ago, the beauty and the variety of birds of the area renewed his interest in photography. In the past year, he taught basic photography to the local Brunswick County 4H youth and Beginning Photoshop Elements to retirees. He has also given lectures on Macro, HDR, Panorama photography, and many other topics.

    Most of Jacks work is centered on landscapes and wildlife, but he began dabbling in Astrophotography early last year. He has learned a lot since then about the challenges of capturing the stars in our area and is eager to share that knowledge in the hopes of giving us something new to try.
