Sierra Nevada Noir-Photographing the Harvest Moon at Bodie Ghost Town




• Travel Dates: Tuesday, September 17 – Thursday, September 19
• Orientation: Tuesday, September 10
• Follow-up Critique: Tuesday, September 24

Join internationally acclaimed night photographer, Helen K. Garber, as she guides students through the specialized techniques of photographing the isolated abandoned landscape at night. The course begins at Otis for an introductory meeting to prepare students for the shoot. The second and third meetings take place on location in the Sierra Nevada, including a visit at night to the Alabama Hills in Lone Pine, an early morning moon setting above Mount Whitney, and a night shoot at the renowned Bodie Ghost Town. After a preliminary discussion and a tour with a ranger, your instructor will point out the best vantage points, as students watch and evaluate the available light to be ready to shoot their photos. The final meeting returns to Otis for a critique of student work. Also includes screening of film noir classics in workshop locations: High Sierra (Warner Bros., 1941) and Out of the Past (RKO Radio Pictures, 1947). Cost includes tuition, admission fees, night entry to the California State Park, room for two nights, and one meal; transportation not included.

Prerequisite: Students are expected to understand how to use their camera, including ISO, speed, and aperture settings.
