2024 B+W Infrared: Joshua Tree National Park
Black-and-White Infrared Intensive
March 2 – 6, 2024
Join us for a four-and-one-half day workshop in the high desert of Joshua Tree National Park! The focus of this workshop is capture and processing for black-and-white. It is scheduled around the time of the last quarter moon, which will naturally light the landscape before sunrise.
We will be shooting a variety of landscapes from the enormous palm trees at Cottonwood Springs to the amazing granite monoliths under the early morning night sky (pre-dawn). Other spots we will visit inside the park include Jumbo Rocks, Lost Horse Valley, Hall of Horrors, the Ocotillo Patch, and the Cholla Cactus Gardens plus a couple favorite less-known spots.
From using the right gear to capture and processing, this is a unique opportunity to learn how to create amazing black-and-white infrared images.
At this workshop,
— You will be placed in the best locations to maximize the infrared light under existing conditions.
— You will receive individual help in the field to ensure a successful capture. Every day there will be hands-on experience in the classroom for processing your images while learning how to manage workflow.
— Finally, you will have the opportunity to use a “loaner” external lens filter to make infrared images at no charge to you! 720nm and 850nm infrared Kolari Vision external lens filters will be available if you do not have your own.
