Borrego Springs is the first official International Dark Sky Community in California dedicated to protecting the sky from light pollution, making it the perfect location to capture the beauty of the night sky. Meet Sony Alpha Imaging Collective member Stan Moniz (@stanmoniz) and learn the proper techniques necessary to capture the Milky Way. The explanation of the 500 rule, light painting, star trails, and on site post-editing images in Adobe Lightroom mobile will be covered on this fun-filled night under the blanket of the night sky.
