Salton Sea Star Trails & Light Painting

June 25 – 27

About Your Adventure

Come take photos of the night sky and light painting with long exposure expert, Katrina Brown. Take photos in this desolate and captivating environment that is the Salton Sea. Learn how to photograph star trails, points of light, light painting and even capture the decayed abodes that make this place special. A styled model will be provided one evening for the light painting portion. Arrive in the afternoon to set up and settle in. We’ll then go to work at dusk and shoot until the early hours. You can camp or drive to a nearby hotel- camping at Mecca Beach will be much more convenient and will allow your camera to stay out longer for trails. It will be lots of fun and we’ll make some spectacular images together.
