Sharpen Your Photographic Skills
July 29 - August 3, 2012

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

A great next step after basic photography is learning how to use color, light, and composition to create outstanding images. Another important component of this workshop is its focus on the artistic use of light, with special emphasis on creative flash techniques.

We begin each day by editing and reviewing each other’s photographs. Visual lectures and demonstrations cover digital camera settings, accurate metering and exposure, and the rules of composition.

We spend afternoons on field trips in and around Santa Fe, photographing assignments based on topics discussed during morning sessions. These assignments include an on-location session with models, a visit to Abiquiu’s Plaza Blanca (or the “White Place,” made famous in a series of painting by Georgia O’Keeffe), and a trip to the beautiful and historical town of Las Vegas, New Mexico. Raul accompanies the group during these assignments, providing hands-on support and advice. A final lecture on the basics of editing and sequencing your work rounds out your learning experience.

The inspiring light, architecture, people, and colors of New Mexico are ever-present, providing the group with endless opportunities for practicing newly acquired skills.
