Event Poster

Join award-winning photographer and Cowgirl Hall of Fame honoree Barbara Van Cleve for her special photography workshop, given indoors and under the stars. Barbara specializes in American West imagery and is known for her beautiful nighttime photography. Take advantage of the clear skies and abundant Montana starlight to capture images you won’t find anywhere else.

The Starry Night Photography workshop is for beginner photographers interested in learning digital camera techniques. Barbara will help you understand the features of your camera and teach you how to produce emotional, dramatic photographs with your camera lenses and filters. Barbara will also instruct you about HDR (high dynamic range) photographs as well as on shooting and blending layers. Participants will be shooting extensively in moonlight and starlight (weather permitting). The Starry Night Photography workshop will show you new ways of visualizing and conceptualizing the images you want to capture and share with the world.
