The American West: The Vision and the Print
with Brett L. Erickson
June 29 - July 4, 2014

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

Spend five days in the incomparable New Mexico light and create fine-art black-and-white inkjet prints of the American Southwest! We start by examining classic images of the Southwest and learn to identify the components that make them work. From there, we move through the photographic process from conception to completion, mastering the steps necessary to create dazzling inkjet prints. We then use these skills to develop our own visualizations of landscapes and architecture in Northern New Mexico.

We venture into the field to bring our ideas to life, traveling to locations around Santa Fe and Taos. We work to produce strong digital negatives that echo our ideas, taking advantage of constructive critiques each day to further hone our work. Back in The Workshops state-of-the-art digital lab, we follow the creative progression to its conclusion, using Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, and the NIK collection of software to take our digital images from camera to the completed file. Eventually, they become fine-art prints on archival papers. You gain valuable experience in navigating the complete photographic process, resulting in greater success in converting images from your mind’s eye into breathtaking photographs on paper. Join Brett and learn to see and print!
