Boston Camera Club- Education Night

The Boston Camera Club is very pleased to announce the first of many wonderful educational programs available to its members and members of the public.  This is a free program, though of course we encourage participants to join the club so they can benefit from our many other opportunities.  The Boston Camera Club meets weekly at the All Saints Parish Church, 1773 Beacon St, Brookline.  You can learn more about us at our website:, or at

On Tuesday, September 24th, Jürgen Lobert, Chair of our monthly Electronic Image competition, will be speaking about Night Photography.  He will teach you all about equipment, exposure, light sources, and much more.  Jürgen's passion for photography began more than 30 years ago in an attempt to creatively capture places and moments in time.  Although he tries not to limit himself, and expresses himself through many types of photography, he often comes back to his love of night photography.  

Please join us for this special opportunity.  Club members are invited to also attend a field trip to practice their newly-learned skills and a subsequent critique night to get feedback on their work.  
I have attached a flyer.  Please let me know if you need any additional information.

Take care,Sam

How to Photograph the Moon and Stars with your DSLR

Shooting Stars eBook


How to Photograph the Moon and Stars with your DSLR

Ever wished you could capture stunning images of the night sky? Thought you needed complicated and expensive equipment? Shooting Stars, written by the winner of the 2012 David Malin Astrophotography Award, will show you how to shoot your own stunning images of the moon and the stars with just your digital SLR and a tripod.
It will teach you about five key styles of night sky photography and the camera settings required for each:

  • Twilight landscapes
  • Night sky scenes (short exposures)
  • Star trails (long exposures)
  • The Moon
  • Night sky timelapse videos

If you've ever wanted to photograph the night sky, I'm very confident this eBook will help you a lot!
Click here to view more details and purchase the ebook

You Can Photograph the Night Sky

Shooting Stars has simple instructions for getting you started using your camera under the stars. The only other piece of equipment you need to get started tonight is a tripod.
In addition to simple advice about the camera settings to use for each style of night sky photography, Shooting Stars provides detailed discussion of the finer points of imaging in low light conditions. It’s a reference you’ll keep coming back to and will help even professional photographers learn more about their camera and how to use it at night.


Click to view the complete Table of Contents to see just how comprehensive this eBook is.

Part 1, The Sky at Night, introduces some basic astronomy concepts, to help you understand what you can expect to see at night from different places on Earth and at different times of the year. This part includes a description of how and why the phase of the Moon varies each month and at which times of the year you can expect to see and photograph the Milky Way.

Part 2, Night Sky Photography, is the heart of the book. It begins by discussing your camera and lenses and how to use them to turn the faint light of the night sky into stunning images. Most importantly, it describes three techniques for how to get accurate focus at night when your autofocus fails you. At least one of these techniques is guaranteed to work with whatever camera and lens you are using. This section also describes additional equipment and accessories that will enable you to do more with your camera at night and help make the experience more enjoyable.

Having established the fundamentals, Part 2 of Shooting Stars then describes the camera settings required for the different styles of Night Sky Photography: Twilight Landscapes, The Moon, Night Sky Scenes and Star Trails (as above) and Timelapse Video (below).

Part 3 of Shooting Stars covers Image Processing, concentrating on the particular techniques and steps you will need to get the most out of your night sky images. Examples and screen captures are provided for Photoshop, Lightroom, ACDSee and Aperture but the instructions can easily be applied using other image processing applications.

Part 4, Wonders of the Night Sky, will inspire you to get outside with your camera more often. This final part covers interesting events, features and phenomena that you can see at night and how to apply night sky photography techniques to capture them. Topics include Comets, Meteors, Conjunctions, Eclipses of the Moon, the Milky Way, Satellite Flares, the Aurora Borealis and even Bioluminescence. Each topic features more of Phil’s stunning images and the stories behind them.

Reviews of Shooting Stars

Amazingly informative and beautifully illustrated!
Attila K,
My husband and I are thrilled with this book because you have suggested solutions to problems we have faced in our photography.
This book is worth five times the price!"

Daphne Gonzalvez
Lots of great content, and you really got me fired up to try some night sky photography. The book looks like it must have been a ton of work and I really appreciate it. Well worth the money.
Bill Young, Oregon
I've been a long-time fan of Phil's work, and I thought I was reasonably confident in shooting night sky scenes, but this book has taught me some things that I'll be trying on my next night out! A must-read for beginners and experienced photographers alike who want to capture the beauty of the night sky.
Mike Salway, Ice In Space Online Astronomy Community

Bonus Field Guide

This handy field guide provides a quick summary of the exposure settings you need for each style of night sky photography. It also describes where to find camera settings particular to this type of photography on popular DSLRs from Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax and Sony. This field guide is included free as a special bonus when you purchase Shooting Stars today.

ASMP Alert: Facebook changes Terms of Service

ASMP Alert: Facebook changes Terms of Service

The new Facebook Terms of Use have been modified to allow the company to sell virtually anything that is uploaded to the service, including all your photos, your identity and your data. Facebook has also explicitly removed the privacy protection from the commercialization rights.
This means that any photos uploaded to Facebook may be sold, distributed or otherwise commercialized with no compensation to the photographer. These new terms of service go into effect today.

If you wish to provide feedback to the company, you can contact them here. ASMP will continue to work to modify the terms of use to be more favorable to photographers.
Here’s the most important language. (Strikethrough indicates language that is being removed. Bold text is used to indicate the new additions.)

You can use your privacy settings to limit how your name and profile picture may be associated with commercial, sponsored, or related content (such as a brand you like) served or enhanced by us. You give us permission to use your name, and profile picture, content, and information in connection with commercial, sponsored, or related that content (such as a brand you like) served or enhanced by us, subject to the limits you placeThis means, for example, that you permit a business or other entity to pay us to display your name and/or profile picture with your content or information, without any compensation to you. If you have selected a specific audience for your content or information, we will respect your choice when we use it.

A short Q&A on Facebook's commercial use of your photographs

Q: What Did Facebook Do Now?

A: Effective today (September 5th, 2013) Facebook has put into effect new Terms of Service and privacy policies that radically increase Facebook’s power to exploit your content and identity.

Read more here:

Q: What Do These Changes Let Facebook Do With My Information And Content?

A: Facebook is now able to exploit your name, likeness, content, images, private information, and personal brand by using it in advertising and in commercial and sponsored content — without any compensation to you. Facebook is monetizing not just your images, but a sizable portion of your entire online identity.

Q: I Don’t Share A Lot Of Private Information Or Images On Facebook. What Does This Mean For Me?

A: Facebook is still collecting and exploiting private information about you. It is ASMP’s interpretation that the statement “…when you are using Facebook, or when Facebook is running” allows Facebook to monitor your web browsing, as well as to gather information from your mobile phone while the Facebook mobile app is running such as your location, recent calls, and other mobile activities.

Q: Can’t I Protect Myself By Making My Profile Private?

A: Maybe, but probably not.

Facebook has specifically removed the language from their TOS that allows you to limit how your likeness, information, and content are associated with brands, commercial uses, or sponsored posts. The have also removed the clause that makes them subjects to the privacy limits set in place by you on your profile.

Check out this excerpt from the TOS Changes; the bold text is new additions to the TOS, the strikethroughs are language that is being removed from the TOS. This is one of the most important pieces of language in the whole document.

You can use your privacy settings to limit how your name and profile picture may be associated with commercial, sponsored, or related content (such as a brand you like) served or enhanced by us. You give us permission to use your name, and profile picture,content, and information in connection with commercial, sponsored, or related that content (such as a brand you like) served or enhanced by us, subject to the limits you placeThis means, for example, that you permit a business or other entity to pay us to display your name and/or profile picture with your content or information, without any compensation to you. If you have selected a specific audience for your content or information, we will respect your choice when we use it.

Q: I Don’t Use Facebook, So Why Should I Care?

A: One of the things ASMP and its allies are most concerned about is that these usage terms and attitudes towards users’ content are becoming the norm. Facebook is a leader among online communities and services, and as they go, so do several others. Turning a blind eye to these changes simply because you do not use one service ignores a more important change in the overall culture of the internet and how online companies view and respect users, users’ information, and content. Change does not happen in silence, but through the voices of many.

And note that any images your clients upload to Facebook are covered by these terms, so some of your photos may end up as the property of Facebook without your knowledge.

Q: I Read A Statement From Facebook That Said They Would Respect My Privacy And Content. What’s Up With That?

A: You may be referring to this:

While this friendly statement may seem to break down many of the proposed changes into easy to digest language, the real nature of these changes is apparent when you start to read the documents that lay out the legal language for the actual proposed updates.

No one likes reading Terms of Service and agreements, but it is more important than ever to understand what you are agreeing to when you use these services. These Terms of Service are open-ended, vague, and far reaching. Please take the time to read them, or contact us with questions

Please read the full document here:

Or a more in depth analysis by Peter Krogh here:

Q: What Can I Do?

A: There are a few things you can do about this and prevent it from becoming the norm for online services.

  1. Become informed — Read and analyze these proposed changes and how they effect you. Ask questions.
  2. Spread the word — Talk to your friends, students, family, and colleagues about these changes and how may affect you personally and professionally.
  3. Call for action — Help others to become informed. Urge other professional organizations and entities you are a member of or work with to partner with organizations like ASMP and others as they work to ensure fair and respectful treatment of users by online services like Facebook and Instagram.
