Have you ever wondered how photographers take pictures of the night sky? Sticking with our "Dream Big" Summer Reading theme, local photographer Ashley Mickelson will show you how to take pictures of stars to create star trails. In the event of a cloudy or rainy night, we will learn how to do light painting, which is done with cameras that can keep the shutter open for long stretches of time. This is a hands on program, so feel free to bring your camera and a tripod to practice.
