Early Night Photography Results From Bodie July 29
What an amazing night we had,with an afternoon storm clearing the air for crystal clear Milky Way shooting conditions. The energetic storm also left many puddles that we could use to catch building and Milky Way reflections.

We've conducted four workshop sessions across three dates do far in 2016, and we have four sessions across three dates remaining:

Stormy Evenings are the Best in Bodie!
Summer monsoon moisture can lead to afternoon and evening clouds and showers, bringing fantastic sunsets and blue hour light. They also wash the air for crystal clear Milky Way viewing and shooting conditions. The storm clouds are formed by convection currents caused by the sun's heat. They tend to dissipate after sunset and/or move to the east. So we often get just the right kind of weather, right when we need it as the evening progresses

We've conducted four workshop sessions across three dates do far in 2016, and we have four sessions across three dates remaining:

Some Images from Bodie Night & Interior Workshops June 27
We had a group of photographers from photography clubs join us on this day, for interior access and/or night photography. I skip a lot of subjects in the interiors if I already have them, but here are a few that are either new or which I re-shot.

We've conducted four workshop sessions across three dates do far in 2016, and we have four sessions across three dates remaining:

Wild West Washing Machine
Throw the dirty laundry in, stir it around a bit, wring it out, and hang it up!  I wonder how often miners actually washed their clothes... once a month?  No doubt they rinsed the dust off with water, but with soap, it may have been an expensive luxury. Yearly?  Never? 

Regarding sunrise/interior access for 2016, the dates we were able to get weren't amenable to our usual dual interior and night photography workshops, so we scheduled two of those in 2016 instead of our usual 4 or 5.  The October 1 date is nearly full with dual workshop participants, but we can open up 5 spots for interior access only on June 5: http://www.jeffsullivanphotography.com/blog/bodie-night-photography-workshops/

That Was Quick
An update on 2016 Bodie workshops:
- June 4 is NEARLY FULL, so I'll take down the Bodie-only registration to save the last couple of spots for people also signing up for the June 2-3 Eastern Sierra extension (5 enrolled there too).  
- June 27 is FULL
- July 29 & August 28 (Milky Way nights) have plenty of room, and we've planned them adjacent to the Ghost Stories nights so you can enjoy a second evening in the park. 
- October 1 is 50% FULL and I will shut Bodie-only registration down shortly so photographers coming to town for fall colors can join us for the whole week in the Eastern Sierra, including Bodie.

Optional extension workshops are available for all Bodie workshops except June 27, as described at these links:

Yosemite: http://www.jeffsullivanphotography.com/blog/yosemite-national-park-photography-workshops/
Eastern Sierra: http://www.jeffsullivanphotography.com/blog/eastern-sierra-fall-colors-photo-workshops/
Death Valley: http://www.jeffsullivanphotography.com/blog/death-valley-photography-workshop-2013/

I priced all of my other workshops this year very aggressively, to be out with photographers as much as possible and build my customer base.  Frankly I want to astonish photographers with both the opportunities I present them with, and the value offered!

Milky Way Arch Panoramas in Bodie
The June 4 night in Bodie is particularly good for shooting Milky Way arch panoramas.  My goal this year is to get one a little closer to the horizon here, with the Standard Mill illuminated.  That first date is filling fast:
