See Sugar Pine Point State Park through a new lens!
Join local photographer Grant Kaye for an exciting evening viewing Leonid meteor shower at gorgeous Sugar Pine Point State Park. Grant will share with you tips and tricks to capture shooting stars in your night photos at this beautiful West Shore location.
This fundraiser supports and benefits the interpretative mission of Sierra State Parks Foundation.
In the event of inclement weather (rain/snow/thunder & lightening), the workshop will be held the following day/night. Please note: cloudy skies are not inclement weather as clouds come and go. In the event of cloudy skies during a night workshop, students will be taught light paining and general night photography techniques.
A decision will be made no more than 24 hours prior to the workshop start time, and no less than 3 hours prior to the workshop start time. Students and Park administration will be notified via email.
A DSLR camera and tripod are required for this class. Please note that meteor frequency during a meteor shower is up to mother nature. While we all hope for lots and lots of them, they are not guaranteed. Regardless of how many meteors we see and photograph, this class will provide you with instruction, tips and techniques on how to shoot at night, which will help you be ready to shoot meteors or any other type of night astrophotography.
Please make sure to bring:
