Want to improve your milky way photos?

Join Us After the Outsiders Photography Conference!

  • Most photographers do well with gear and technique, but they can fall short in post-processing. We’ll cover many techniques specific to night photography, such as noise reduction, blending shots, stacking shots, and much more!
  • Learn a complete post-processing system from beginning to end that will produce great results every time!
  • This intensive, hands-on seminar is being done in conjunction with the first annual Outsiders Photography Conference in Kanab, UT. Conference attendance is not required to join the post-processing seminar.
  • Enrollment is capped at 20 participants, so come armed with any questions you'd like answers to!
