Immerse yourself in the wonders of Joshua Tree National Park and connect with the enchantment to be found there. This course features the relationship between photography and art. In it we will explore the artistic process and how to grow as an artist. It is not intended to be a basic photography class but rather an opportunity to expand your personal interpretation and creative expression which is the heart of the art. Our experience of this marvelous land will be enhanced by camping (optional) in the Lost Horse Campground, from Friday through Sunday. The weekend schedule includes two (2) sunrise shoots, two (2) morning shoots, one (1) sunset shoot, one (1) optional night sky shoot (conditions permitting). There will be classroom programs to provide an orientation, to discuss “The Essence of Fine Art” and photo sharing and constructive critiques. This is an “action packed” workshop, so, bring your camera equipment, camping equipment and enthusiasm and watch your creativity soar! Note: arrangements will be made for those preferring to sleep with something more substantial over their heads than rip-stop nylon. Plan to make accommodations in Twentynine Palms and meet at the Oasis Visitor center to head out to the shooting locations.
Call 760-367-5535 for more information on the camping option and camping equipment can be rented from local outfitters.
