The Light and Color of Santa Fe
March 27 - March 30, 2013

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

Light, composition, color, design, gesture, and moment—these are the elements that make photographs visually powerful and emotionally memorable. The measure of a great photograph is the power it has to evoke a response from the viewer. In this workshop, we strive to create visually striking images that provoke emotional responses.

Late March is a perfect time to explore historic Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico with our cameras. The days are warmed with golden light as the winter season draws to a close and we move about with ease since the tourist season hasn’t begun. During our four days together we photograph a variety of incredible locations, giving us opportunities to develop and practice newly acquired interpretive skills.

Through a range of visual exercises, participants are challenged to revise their thinking and to experiment with techniques designed to create more interpretive and original artistic images. Daily assignments put classroom techniques into practice, and take advantage of the stunning light and color of the Santa Fe area. Brenda leads daily group critiques and spends time with participants individually, reviewing their personal portfolios and discussing their aspirations. In addition, classroom discussions address developing creative vision as well as the technical aspects of color photography.

Pictures are created, not taken, and they are created with heart, soul and camera. Join Brenda for an intense, inspirational workshop in Santa Fe and explore your creative side.

COLLEGE CREDIT AVAILABLE (Course Level 300): For an additional fee, participants may elect to receive one hour of college credit through Hastings College upon successful completion of this workshop. Those interested in earning credit should inquire with Santa Fe Photographic Workshops at the time of registration, 505-983-1400, Ext. 11.
