ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP

Clear skies and amazing alien rock formations set the stage for dramatic photographic opportunities during the day and even more so at night around Mono Lake, California. This workshop will go over everything milky way including how to locate it all year round. The Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest is also in our scopes as we drive high into the Eastern Sierras / White Mountains to photograph the oldest trees on the planet.

You will also learn to master the best light painting techniques for still and timelapse photography in addition to the milky way and star trail photography.  Get  a hands-on experience with motion controlled timelapse photography at night!
