Astrophotography In Joshua Tree National Park With Stan Moniz

Joshua Tree National Park is home to some of the darkest skies in Southern California and a perfect location to capture the beauty of the night sky. Join Stan Moniz (@stanmoniz), a Sony Alpha Imaging Collective member and recognized professional photographer, for a night in Joshua Tree National Park shooting Polaris and the North Celestial Pole. A variety of techniques will be taught and explained in an easy to understand manner for any photographer who is interested in the art form of astrophotography. The explanation of the 500 rule, light painting, star trails, and on site post-editing images in Adobe Lightroom mobile will be covered on this fun-filled night under the blanket of the night sky.
