Astrophotography Exhibition at T2F

Astronomy is my hobby and passion and so is photography. When both combined makes me an Astrophotographer. In 2007, I first saw photos of Moon and planets. Then I found a book practical sky watching in which I found some really awesome photographs of Orion Nebula, Milky way, Andromeda galaxy and wide field photos of the sky and earth. I started capturing photos with DSLR as part of my hobby in 2013. Since then I captured dozens of Astrophotographs and they turned to be awesome. Many of my friends and mentors asked me to put those photos at an Exhibition.

Finally, this year the opportunity came and knocked on the door. Yes. An Astrophotography exhibition opportunity organized by The Second Floor (T2F) for my Astronomy club Karachi Astronomers Society (See my work at KAS here). In past, I had been asked by many artists and people from T2F to exhibit my Astrophotographs at an Art Gallery.

Coming to the point, the exhibition starts on 13th of September, 2017 and will end on 26th Sep. The entry is free and everyone with an interest in nature, cosmos, astronomy or photography should visit. There are two workshops (paid) on Astrophotography as well on 15th Sep and 19th Sep at T2F.
