with Craig Varjabedian [Santa Fe, NM]
March 10-14, 2014
In this dynamic workshop, you will explore the vivid terrain of White Sands National Monument in southern New Mexico with award winning photographer Craig Varjabedian. You will experience the state's legendary allure, from the rhythm of rolling sand dunes to the stark beauty of this unique landscape. The harsh dichotomy of earth and sky makes the beauty of New Mexico a unique treasure, and we will discover it in secret hideaways and forgotten vistas.
Our workshop will begin in Alamogordo New Mexico as we spend three days at White Sands National Monument creatively exploring these incredible rolling white sands. We will then drive to Santa Fe and spend one day processing, sharing (critiquing) and printing our images. Craig will also discuss image processing workflow, color management and the aesthetics of digital printing.
The unique challenges of this workshop will be in capturing the intense beauty in the southern part of the state, where the high-low contrast makes for a more attenuated beauty than in other regions. The intrepid photographer will be rewarded with indelible images of dream-like scenes and lost eras when a different aesthetic prevailed. You will be photographing this desert environment in an atmosphere of adventure, exploration, and discovery. This is a shooting intensive workshop, with Craig providing hands-on one-on-one guidance in the field. Whether you are pointing your camera at a magnificent sand dune or capturing the dynamic weather that is common here, you'll have many great opportunities to make great photographs.
Whether you are pointing your camera at the magnificent dunes or capturing the dynamic weather that is common here, you'll spend time challenging yourself and improving your image-making abilities. During the workshop, we will be out photographing in both morning and evening light. During mid-day hours we will be looking at images on your laptop computer to provide feedback on your images in order to view and further your progress.
This workshop is terrific for all digital photographers who have a good understanding of their camera and are able to edit images on a laptop computer. For more information.
