If you look at the sky in a clean dark night, away from the light pollution, you will see a thin band of light crossing the skies. This is the Milky Way, home to our Solar System. Here there are at least another 200 billion stars (more recent estimates provide a number of about 400 billion) and their planets, thousands of swarms and nebulae, including at least almost all of the objects in Messier's catalog that are not galaxies ( two globular clusters may be considered as possible exceptions because they are being or have recently been incorporated or imported into our galaxy from dwarf galaxies that are currently passing through our Milky Way: M54 of the dwarf elliptical galaxy of Sagittarius, and possibly M79 of the Great Dwarf. All objects in the Milky Way orbit in a center of mass called the Galactic Center.
The windmills in the Serra da Atalhada, not being Dark Sky, still make it possible to obtain good photographic records. In this Workshop, we intend to share with you how to photograph the milky way, helping to define the parameters to be used using the methods of the 500 and / or NPF rule.
We will discuss how the use of apps for smartphones can help to plan this type of photography, using Photopills.
We will also have the opportunity to make a star trail and photograph the passage of the comet through our solar system.

His first serious machine was an analog Minolta, acquired in 1992, which still holds religiously. With the transition to digital the passion grew, it was systematically evolving and combining photography with his other passion, travels. With 29 countries in his curriculum, he combines his experience of traveling and photography, mastering not only the technical aspects of photography, but also the logistical aspects of travel. During his travels he absorbed several knowledge of other international photographers with whom he shared great photographic moments, namely in Iceland and Scotland, countries that he choose as dream destinations for any landscape photographer.
His passion for photography started in the late 90s, with a Pentax film camera, and he had the first digital camera in 2001 a Sony. More recently, he rediscovered his passion for landscape photography. Through his photographic trips, he had the opportunity to photograph several European countries in different scenarios and seasons, improving his technique, even in the most demanding environments. In 2020 he joined the team of photographic leaders at Photo Details Workshops.
