Explore with your camera the oldest capital city in the United States and the magnificent landscape that surrounds it . . . "For a greatness of beauty I have never experienced anything like New Mexico. . . . What splendor! " — D.H. Lawrence The land and light of Santa Fe, along with its adobe architecture, brilliant light and mulitcultural flavor have drawn painters and photographers for more than a century. You will photograph this unique place with award-winning photographer Craig Varjabedian, in an atmosphere of adventure and discovery. Craig has explored and photographed New Mexico for more than thirty years and will share his favorite places with you. You will have opportunities to photograph the historic adobe architecture, cowboys on a western ranch and the red hills and mesas of Georgia O'Keeffe country. We will be based in Santa Fe and will tour by van to nearby locations, where you will receive one-on-one instruction in the field, on technical and aesthetic issues. Whether you are pointing your camera at a magnificent rock formation or capturing the dynamic weather that is common here, you'll spend time challenging yourself and improving your image making vision and skills. Class discussions will be held at Craig's studio in Santa Fe. Along with receiving feedback on your images, you will learn about such aspects of digital photography as histograms and HDR. WHO SHOULD ATTEND You should be prepared to carry your own gear and be capable of walking and light hiking on sand, rocks and somewhat varied terrain. This workshop is terrific for all digital photographers well grounded in both manual and program modes of their digital camera. You need to be able to edit images, and to have a basic understanding of digital workflow and the ability to perform tonal and color adjustments with your image manipulation software on your laptop computer, in order to get the most out of this workshop.
