Journey of the Seasons (Book and Workshop)

A Photographic Journey Through the Medicine Wheel

by Dr. John A. Allocca

Journey of the Seasons is a photographic journey of self discovery - a vision quest. It will begin in the spring. Then, continues into the summer, fall, and winter. It begins with questions about yourself. With a little luck, answers may come though the photographs or how they were obtained. Be sure to keep notes as your proceed on this journey.

The journey will follow the path of the Native American Medicine Wheel, a living tool as we travel to each direction.

The book provides guidance throughout your own personal journey.

There are no scheduled workshops at this time. If you are interested in this journey, contact Dr. Allocca by Email.

Introduction to Astronomy and Photography (Book and Workshop)

by Dr. John A. Allocca

Explore the universe from your home to the outer reaches of the space

Astronomy has been a wonderful and exciting aspect of human civilization since the dawn of time. Start a new adventure in your life with astronomy. Telescopes and binoculars provide you with a close view of the stars. An inexpensive telescope, spotting scope, or pair of binoculars can provide a good view of the moon, planets, Andromeda Galaxy, Orion Nebula, and more. When you look up at the stars with the naked eye, you may see six stars in a given area. When you look at the same area you may see 10x more with binoculars and 200x more with a telescope.

If you don't know anything about photography, but enjoy taking photographs, you will also learn the basics about cameras, light, composition and framing.

Topics include: Learning Astronomy, Binoculars, Telescopes and Spotting Scopes, Magnification, Field of View, Light Gathering, Tripods and Mounts, Star Charts for the Northern Hemisphere, Constellations, Moon Phases, Perspective of Earth and the Universe, Photography Basics, Astrophotography, and DSLR Astrophotography.
