The best things about a Santa Fe Workshop experience are the variety and great participants. Former Santa Fe Photographic Workshops participant

The tradition of small-camera urban night photography is one of the richest in the history of the medium. We begin our study of the subject with a survey of work by giants such as Erich Salomon, Brassaï, Berenice Abbott, and Roy DeCarava. We then stroll the streets of Santa Fe, photographing public and private locations at dusk and dawn, and leaving time for post-production and group critiques.

Jason emphasizes the techniques of low-light, location ambient, and strobe photography. Through his hands-on teaching style, participants gain a thorough understanding of how to maximize available light, choose the proper ISO and aperture, make long exposures, and use unobtrusive artificial light. Of equal importance are the emotional and psychological dimensions of choosing dynamic urban locations, and we explore successful tactics for approaching strangers on the street and defining personal photographic style.

In the classroom Jason demonstrates classic darkroom techniques translated into Adobe Photoshop, as well as archival digital printing and print presentation. Throughout, you acquire creative methods for increasing concentration and awareness, while getting at the heart of your photographic message. After four fruitful days, you come away with the confidence and skill to tell your unique and powerful photographic stories of the night.
