KEYS RANCH NIGHTSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP w/ Desert Institute at Joshua Tree National Park
With new digital camera technologies, nighttime has become the right time to make spectacular images!

Unlock your creativity and take your photography to a new place in this one-night workshop on photographic techniques after dark, including wide-field astrophotography, light painting, and light drawing. Learn how to photograph the night sky with your DSLR camera. Light painting and light drawing are photographic techniques in which images are made using long shutter speeds as the photographer uses a hand-held light source, such as a flashlight, to create the exposure. The photographer points the light source directly at the camera to “draw with light” or “paint with light” by shining the light source on an object or scene to create illumination. From Ansel Adams to Pablo Picasso, these seemingly magical techniques have long inspired photographers and artists alike with their ability to make visible the invisible and to play with time.
