Cancelled: The Landscape of New Mexico Photography Workshop with Craig Varjabedian / Starts July 22nd, 2012
Cancelled: The light and land of New Mexico that have drawn poets, artists, painters, and photographers for over a century will be our focus for the week. In this workshop, you will walk this enchanted land with award-winning photographer Craig Varjabedian, photographing a unique environment in an atmosphere of adventure, exploration, and discovery.
Craig has explored and photographed New Mexico for over thirty years and will share his favorite places with you. Here are hidden landscapes splashed with color and texture, shady and quiet back roads, premier photographic possibilities from the morning light arching over the mountains to enchanted mesas and adobe ruins. Field trips focus on how to wait for the magical New Mexico light and how to capture the essence of a place — from picking the best vantage point to knowing when to use your tripod or what lens. In class sessions you and Craig and your fellow students will critique one another’s digital images and discuss many aspects of the medium.
