Explore, learn, and live the techniques, camera work, and composition and setup skills needed to capture breathtaking milky way, star trails, and painting-with-light imagery amongst the extraordinary steel art sculptures of Anza Borrego Springs. First, in an exciting and informative general meeting program, followed by a hands-on, guided shooting workshop with your IEPPV hosts Robert Fletcher and Nick Seth-Smith on June 25th.
People travel from around the world to see the amazing full-sized metal sculptures at Borrego Springs – many inspired by creatures that roamed this same desert millions of years ago. The artworks range from prehistoric mammals to historical characters, fantastical dinosaurs, and a 350-foot-long fanciful serpent. Join IEPPV as we go shooting!
