This workshop is designed to enhance your understanding of the photographic process, from capture to output. Tony shares the in-depth knowledge he gained from his 30-year career as a professional photographer and master printer. Four days in the field photographing the scenic beauty and drama of the Bosque del Apache, then seeing your work come to life in the printed form, provide an invigorating and well-rounded photographic experience.
The Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge is world-famous for its lush wetlands and migratory bird populations. In this combination field/lab workshop, you are inspired and challenged to capture the flights of Sandhill Cranes, Snow Geese, Ross's Geese, ducks, hawks and eagles. In addition to the birdlife, there are many other wildlife subjects including deer, javelina, bobcats, fox, and mountain lion as well as the Bosque's unique vegetation and landscapes that are another fascinating subject.
Our adventure begins on Sunday evening in Socorro, New Mexico. Monday through Wednesday we photograph in the refuge and other nearby locations. Each day Tony shares tips and techniques to help you realize your creative vision. Wednesday afternoon, all participants depart Socorro and undertake a leisurely drive back to Santa Fe.
Thursday and Friday are spent in The Workshops state-of-the-art digital lab to process and print our images. Tony reviews, discusses, and guides your image processing workflow, placing special emphasis on color management, composition, and archival digital printing using both Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom.
