Fundamentals of Landscape Photography - Palm Springs Life

Fundamentals of Landscape Photography

Are you new to landscape photography, need help with your camera setup, or feedback/tips on how to improve? Join our workshop to take the next step in your photographic journey, learn and understand the essentials so that you can unlock your creativity and enjoy capturing images of the natural world. We’ll visit several different and varied locations in Joshua Tree National Park to talk about and practice landscape photography during the workshop. The instructor will be available to coach you in real time on specific techniques you’d like to learn or answer any questions you may have. During the workshop, you’ll enjoy and photograph the stunning desert landscape at different times of the day, from nautical twilight through sunset and into the night. Photographic subjects will include Joshua Tree’s fantastic geologic features and its diverse range of fauna and flora. We’ll have time to review and discuss our images throughout the weekend, and the instructor will provide suggestions on how to continue developing your photography. The workshop is intensive but will also be enjoyable and will give you lots of ideas and techniques that you can integrate into your photography.

We have reserved the pristine Lost Horse campground for this workshop, which is not normally open to the public. Camping is optional but offers an exciting experience to fully immerse yourself in the outdoors for the weekend. For those who prefer not to camp, please plan to find your own accommodation in Twentynine Palms. We’ll provide maps to guide you to each of the shooting locations.
