UPDATE 10/30/08: This workshop was a rousing success. Everyone had a great time and shot some great work. View the group of student work. There's a chance we may be doing another workshop here in the spring of '09. If you want to be on the notification list, send me an e-mail.
Joe Reifer and I have secured legal access to the Pearsonville junkyard for a night photography / light painting workshop on October 11th and 12th.
We're gonna base ourselves in Ridgecrest, 15 miles away, where there's plenty of inexpensive lodging. We'll offer a technique demo and lecture on the afternoon of the first day, and a critique of the first night's shooting on the second afternoon. We will have 6+ hours legal access in the yard each night as well as daytime access for scouting.
Our intention is to shoot minimally for demonstration purposes and spend our time helping you learn how to shoot at night and light paint. We'll probably offer an early registration discount and a cash/paypal price. Class will be limited to 10 students.
This is a rare opportunity to learn from me in a one on one context, AND to shoot a truly exceptional junkyard before it's gone (and yes, it is in the process of being destroyed).
