Palm Springs Windmills Shoot in Southern California!

Beautiful Windmill Shoot in Palm Springs of Southern California!

Southern California Destination

California provides a wide variety of photography opportunities for Seniors & Destination Palm Springs can provide some really cool locations including downtown Palm Springs, Joshua Tree, or the Windmills! If you dream of the wind in your hair, sunshine on your face, & sand on your toes then the desert is the place for you!

Shooting at the windmills on this day was a special treat! Rain – which rarely happens in the Mojave Desert, was hanging out on the local mountains & the clouds provided some amazing filtered light! We headed out after lunch & spent some time driving around the windmills to get the perfect location. The amazing shots that follow are just a few of the gorgeous images we captured.


Let’s Talk Equipment

Off Camera Flash  was used to pop some light into the scene. I used my SB910, hand held & got some beautiful results. I also used my Nikon D810 Camera, my Sigma Art 35mm f1.4, & my Nikon 200mm f2. If you are an interested photographer, you can find these items at B&H here….  

I also love light, all kinds of light – & this day was a treat with Carina, her photog mom Michelle & her dad Fred (AKA Reflector guy/gear grip), as we experimented with our OCF (off camera light) set ups.



Carina has awesome style! Dress to complement the colors of the desert! This rock & roll outfit is perfect. The layers of black fringe & lace, boots, jewelry & hat really make a statement. The colors worked perfect to compliment the colors of the local mountains & really stood out in front of those monster windmills.
