(an Authorized Permittee of the National Park Service), Tamron Lenses USA
and Hacienda Del Sol Guest Ranch Resort
have teamed up to offer the 2nd Annual National Park Night Skies Photography Workshop in Saguaro National Park
. With Saguaro cactuses standing 40-60 feet tall and crisp skies, Saguaro National Park is a spectacular destination for photographers. The workshop will immerse an exclusive group of participants into the art and science of night skies photography with an emphasis on capturing the Milky Way with Saguaro cactuses in the foreground. As an added bonus, we’ll also do a sunset and a sunrise shoot.
The workshop begins the evening of the 7th with a two-hour seminar at the host lodging property and will cover techniques for capturing your best sunset, night skies and sunrise images. We’ll also cover light painting and lens selection. Tamron USA will have their full complement of lenses available to loan out to you for the entire program, including their award-winning SP 15-30 f/2.8 DI VC USD (FX and DX in Canon, Nikon, and Sony mounts).
After the seminar, we’ll head to Saguaro National Park for the first shoot (sunset) followed by two to three night skies stops at three different locations within the park. We’ll be in the field until approximately 1:30 a.m. and after a rest break we will head back out the morning of the 19th to capture the sunrise. After the sunrise shoot, we’ll return to the host lodging property for a post-shoot session which includes post-processing instruction of the images we took during the workshop.
