Timelapse: Valley of Fire Workshops will Focus on Night Skies of the Nevada Desert in October
Only a three spots remain for Timelapse: Valley of Fire immersive three and four-day timelapse workshops that will be held in Nevada, October 19-21 and 23-26th. The workshops will teach techniques needed to capture day and night timelapses– with a focus on the night sky. They are open to photographers and cinematographers at all skill levels and are limited to 12 attendees who will be mentored by four instructors, assuring individual attention.
Valley of Fire State Park is home to some of the most spectacular landscapes in the world. Over 20 miles of breathtaking rainbow vistas, natural arches, stone cabins, slot canyons, wave rocks, and red-rock cliffs make this one of the most amazing destinations to capture timelapses.
Located just 60 miles from Las Vegas, Valley of Fire State Park is easy to access, but far enough away to allow the night sky to fill with stars. The workshops’ lead instructor Ron Risman chose the location for its incredible red-rock landscape, dry desert weather, and dark skies. The dates of the workshops also correspond to the new moon, allowing participants to capture stunning photographs and timelapses of the Milky Way using their digital SLRs and an external intervalometer.
Timelapse: Valley of Fire is being offered both as a three-day workshop for photographers looking to learn how to create professional quality timelapse sequences and as a four-day workshop for intermediate and advance timelapse photographers who want to take their timelapses to the next level using 1-axis, 2-axis, and 3-axis motion-control dollies from Dynamic Perception and Pan and Tilt heads from eMotimo. The four-day second workshop is also ideal for participants of the first workshop who want to continue their education by becoming proficient with motion control gear. Moving the camera during a timelapse helps to add dimension and depth to timelapse sequences.
