Photographing Penguin Rock in Joshua Tree National Park

Learn how to locate and photograph Penguin Rock in Joshua Tree National Park like a professional photographer.

In this video, we travel to Joshua Tree National Park in Southern California to learn how to photograph the famous Penguin Rock and Juniper Tree. We’ll compare a couple different compositions, lighting situations and discuss what makes for a more unique photograph. There's even a special surprise sunset photo that was unexpected!
