  2. Speaker – Ariel Estulin (Photography After Dark: Night and Star Photography)

Representatives of the Richmond Hill Winter Carnival will be presenting prizes to the annual photo contest winners as we view their submissions

Ariel Estulin is an award-winning photographer and photo educator. Primarily interested in landscapes, he travels the world seeking out beauty in those wild and remote places on earth that still remain untouched by civilization and where nature commands ultimate attention.

Self-taught as a photographer, he spent time with Freeman Patterson, Canada’s renowned photographer, to learn the art of making great photographs. His training as a graphic designer continually shapes what he sees through the lens in order that elements such as light, shape and colour all work in harmony. His never-ending search for off-beat adventures have led him to explore the Himalayas of Nepal and Ladakh, along with South America’s Patagonia. He feels right at home paddling his canoe or hiking in his backyard, the country of Canada.

As a photo educator, his goal is for students to come away with not just better photographs, but a better understanding of photography, better compositions and most importantly, a skill set they now have and can use on future adventures.


In his presentation, Ariel will explain how today’s advanced digital cameras can produce images that were not possible just a few years ago. This talk is designed to show you how to get started with taking photos of the night sky. He will discuss…

  • gear requirements
  • planning your shoot
  • camera settings
  • finding focus and getting sharp images
  • calculating exposure
  • shooting star trails
  • light painting techniques
  • post-production techniques with live examples in Lightroom
