2022 B+W Infrared: Joshua Tree National Park
March 23 – 27, 2022 $1250
Join us for a four-and-ne-half-day four-and-one-half day workshop in the high desert of Joshua Tree National Park! This workshop is scheduled around the waning phase of the moon (last quarter to new moon). We will begin our days early in the field to capture the infrared light naturally lighting the landscape. By the last morning of the workshop, we will have excellent conditions for Milky Way shots until the crescent moon rises close to 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). The workshop dates were chosen to take full advantage of the moon phase for our photography. Other spots we will visit inside the park include Barker Dam, 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 for visible-light (“color only”) cameras will be available if you do not have your own.
