More On Red Rocks Park
Red Rocks is known around the world for its unique rock formations and outdoor amphitheater that plays host to concerts each summer season. And those same rock formations make it a very good place to learn some of the basic skills used in night photography - especially on a night when there aren't any concerts scheduled.
•Camera, Lens, and Tripod (bring your widest, brightest lenses)
•Remote Trigger (if you have one)
Who Should Sign Up
•Anyone with a basic understanding of digital photography
•People interested in learning more about night photography
•Previous experience with night photography is NOT required.
Whether you're new to night photography or have been doing it for a while, I invite you to join us for a night of learning and shooting at Red Rocks. A limited number of dates are available and they're expected to fill up fast. Registration takes place through the front range meetup site so get registered now - before they fill up.
How To Get There
We'll meet at the amphitheater in the very top rows on the south side. This is easiest to access from the parking lot above the amphitheatre called the "Top Circle Lot". The easiest way to get there is to use entrance #1 from US-40 and follow West Alameda Parkway up to the top lot.
We'll be meeting just a very short distance from the parking lot so I thought I'd provide a link to show where it is from the "Top Circle Lot".
