Event description

Description

Seeing the desert illuminated by moonlight is an experience not to be missed. It’s a chance to encounter a quiet world of deep shadows and pale highlights, perceived by the eye as a soft-edged, nearly black and white landscape, where a familiar scene in daytime can start to look mysterious. The sky, absent all but the brightest stars and planets, attains a steely darkness. Yet as our eyes adapt to the dim light, we can notice the subtle beauty of the desert under moonlight. In this evening field class, you’ll learn useful photographic techniques such as camera placement, focusing, exposure, lens settings, and composing the photograph. Craig Fucile, photography instructor at University of California Riverside Extension, will guide and assist participants in making moonlight photographs at two locations in the Park, away from city lights. Participants should to bring a tripod and remote (or wireless) switch for their camera. Don’t miss this opportunity to find new ways to focus on Joshua Tree National Park.
