Saturday, Oct. 1, – Sunday, Oct. 2, 2016 Keys Ranch Nightscape Photography Workshop

Twentynine Palms, CA – Most photographers put their camera away after sunset but today’s digital camera technology makes it easier than ever for photographers to take photographs of the night sky. And the night sky in Joshua Tree is beautiful. With long exposures, the camera will gather light from thousands of stars not visible to the naked eye. When we add light painting techniques of interesting foregrounds, you have an incredible and unique photograph to be proud of. This workshop will include classroom instruction about the night sky, necessary camera equipment, camera settings, focusing at night, light painting, field techniques, and an overview of post-processing. After everyone is comfortable with the concepts of night photography the class will go into the park and practice new skills during a unique private evening at Keys Ranch.

Class will continue after shooting at Keys Ranch for those that want to camp with Don at Indian Cove campground. Once everyone is settled-in, Don will provide an overview of how to take star trails and time-lapse videos, and help those interested set-up their cameras for a two hour series of pictures. Bring some drinks and snacks to share under the stars while your cameras are taking pictures, and Don provides an overview of post processing and how to create star trail pictures and time-lapse videos. This class is limited to 8 participants, so sign up early!
