Come celebrate 10 years of Night Sky Photography with us! Creative night photography is a mystery to many. We’ve figured it out and will make it simple for you! We have 3 different weekends prepared of learning how to photograph the spellbinding spherical movements of stars in the sky, how to change a scene by painting with light, and how to build drama by integrating star trails and light painted foregrounds. Mix & Match classes or choose all 3 weekends! You’ll make pictures that are truly stellar! The first weekend at Paul’s Photo will prepare you for the Joshua Tree adventure & Bristlecone adventure. You’ll Learn what equipment you will need along with  the right camera settings to use. Learn from the best how to light paint and how to process your star trails and milky way photos.

Star Trails Joshua Tree May 4-6 

Take photos in this stark and captivating environment in the desert. Learn how to photograph star trails, light painting and even capture the desolate landscapes of Joshua Tree. We’ll arrive in the afternoon to scout and plan our shots. We’ll then go to work at dusk and shoot until the early hours. You can camp or drive to a nearby hotel. It will be lots of fun and we’ll make some spectacular images together.

Come take photos in this stark and captivating environment with Duane Cassone and Katrina Brown.

Student Reviews:

My daughter and I signed up for the  Star Trails Adventure with both excitement and a little hesitation.  We were pushed outside of our comfort zone and  thrilled with what we learned and proud of the results.  Beautiful site and patient and fun instructors made it magical.   We are ready to sign up again this year and make it a family tradition!

I signed up for the Star Trails Adventure not knowing anything about taking pictures of the night sky. It is a very different style of photography. One learns how to compose a shot that you cannot see with your own eyes, to focus on a star, to take multiple images and process them into a single picture with stunning star trails. We even got to practice light painting techniques. Sitting under the night sky in Joshua Tree is also an incredible experience. The Instructor was knowledgeable, helpful and made it an amazing adventure. I would not hesitate to take this trip again.
