Event description

Description

Join National Parks at Night and the Desert Institute in this special opportunity to learn night photography at Key’s Ranch, a unique location in Joshua Tree National Park that is usually off limits at night, and only open to the public during the daytime on guided tours. Lance Keimig and Gabriel Biderman, who together have 50 years of experience photographing at night will share their techniques and vision to help you to create create compelling night photographs. In the classroom, you’ll learn about equipment choices, camera settings, and focusing
in low light. On location, Gabe and Lance will help participants craft their images using a combination of long exposures and light painting techniques. The workshop takes place just before the first quarter moon, which will provide a measure of moonlight to illuminate the landscape, but no so much that it will overwhelm the stars in the night sky of Joshua tree National Park. This class is limited to 8 participants, so sign up early!
