This 4 day, 3 night, workshop will be held in one of the most sought after locations by night sky photographers. It's rock formations and natural arches are accompanied by dark night skies that make this one special spot for landscape and night sky photographers. This workshop will take place during the workweek where we will avoid a majority of the weekend warriors. We will be up most of the night out capturing star trails, timelapse and milky way photographs with the a few arches and other rock formations in the park. We will learn how to use our camera to it's maximum potential under a variety of lighting conditions. Simple camera settings increase your image quality that you may not be aware of.  Many clients tell me that their pictures are ready to print right out of the camera, and that is what we are looking for, great images straight out of the camera. The camera is an amazing tool, and a tool that isn't used to it maximum capability most of the time. This is a great place to utilize our cameras and our imagination. We can also have a great time while doing that.
