Course Description

Glenn Randall's approach to teaching landscape photography can be summed up in eight words: master the craft, and the art will follow.

The craft of landscape photography goes far beyond understanding photography basics like aperture and shutter speed. It includes the ability to use topographic maps and computerized mapping tools to plan your photographs and to locate promising subjects in the field. It also includes concepts from geography, which tells us how the angle of sunrise and sunset varies throughout the year, and a working knowledge of atmospheric optics—the science of how sunlight interacts with our atmosphere.

Most crucially, the craft of landscape photography includes understanding how the complexities of human vision affect the way we see the world and the way we view art. Understanding how our visual system processes high-contrast scenes helps participants produce beautiful and true-to-life renditions of those scenes.

We spend mornings in the classroom in the digital lab. Afternoons are spent practicing our newly acquired skills at scenic locations in and around the richly inspiring environs of Santa Fe. Participants not only receive the solid foundation in craft they need to flourish as artists, but also have the opportunity for a one-on-one portfolio review. As participants increase their mastery of the craft, their artistry grows and their ability to produce creative yet realistic landscape photographs is enhanced.

A good landscape photographer has the brain of an engineer and the heart of a hopeless romantic. This workshop helps you develop both halves of your photographic personality.
