Explore the Hoover Mason Trestle

June 17 - Join us on the Hoover-Mason Trestle, a raised walkway four stories above ground level. We'll discuss photo techniques and compositional ideas to create images that tell the story of the place and the people who worked here. Then at dusk, we can take advantage of the beautiful lights on the Steel Stacks and learn how to blend them with the fading daylight, for images that juxtapose the old and the new.
