Joshua Tree Full Moon Night Photography Workshop
Dates: Friday, May 13- Sunday, May 15;
1pm until late
This exciting new 3-night course is being held May 13-15 at locations
within Joshua Tree National Park. The first
meeting is held on Friday, May 13 (location
of conferences, TBA) and includes an overview of some recently published
"night work," as well as classic reference texts, and some hard
to find out-of-print monographs. This session also features a slide show
outlining the long history of Night Photography, focusing on famous practitioners,
as well as equally important, though lesser-known, pioneers of this exciting
genre of photography, and a discussion of "Why you photograph at
night?" In addition to these areas of general interest, there is
a discussion of technical considerations, and students are encouraged
to bring previous work done nocturnally for evaluation.
The third night will be spent photographing on location at additional
locations within Joshua Tree National Park under the illumination of the
Full "Flower" Moon. There is even the possibility of a Guest
Lecturer for this special Workshop - if we can work out some of the logistics!
There are plenty of daytime activities that Workshop attendees can participate
in, surveying the various historical, cultural, and geological attractions
the Park has to offer, and the Visitor Center is a good starting point.
You might even bring your camera along to do some "daylight photography!"
Emphasis will be on evaluating existing lighting situations and exposing specific films accordingly. Supplemental lighting possibilities will be discussed and demonstrated. Transparency, b/w, and color negative films will be discussed and compared. This is an intensive workshop limited to 15 participants who will be closely supervised on location.
Students will provide their own equipment and are expected to be familiar
with basic photographic techniques. An equipment and film list will be
provided upon receipt of deposit, along with a detailed time schedule
Participants are responsible for their own lodging and meals. Camping is available at sites within the Park, but you need to reserve early.
