Leap into the world of digital photography with this four-day exploration of composition, camera modes, and creativity. Whether you’re brand new to the world of photography or you just want to brush up on your digital chops, you learn the skills required to build a strong foundation in the world of digital photography.

This action-packed, information-filled workshop covers all of the techniques you need to confidently photograph with a digital SLR or mirrorless camera, and then eidt and process your images in Adobe Lightroom. Will begins with a discussion of settings that make up the backbone of proper exposure: shutter speed, aperture, and ISO settings. After a little practice with hands-on guidance, we discuss different aspects of composition and light that allow participants to creatively express themselves through their photography. Mornings are dedicated to lectures, demonstrations, discussions, and the all-important critiques of the previous days work. Each afternoon we pack up our camera bags and practice our new skills at a number of scenic locations around Santa Fe, a picturesque tri-cultural city renowned for its rich history and exquisite high desert light.

Join Will as he guides you through the technical details you need to operate your camera, while also showing you how to cultivate your creative eye. Participants leave with all the skills essential for expressing themselves through the art of photography—and with new friends and experiences!
