Jan Term Digital Photography in Color and Black and White – G220111
Ghost Ranch is a spectacular place for hiking and photography. This Jan Term immersion, Digital Photography in Color and Black and White – G220111, combines both, providing students a fantastic experience to explore and photograph the magnificent landscapes on the ranch as well as field trips in Northern New Mexico. This is an intensive class and we will, literally, cover a lot of ground. Each day includes a packed schedule with many activities, never a dull moment. Your photographic instruction will culminate in the production of a final sequence of photographs and a journal.
Instructors John Hayden and Kent Bowser, have decades of photographic experience and each has instructed at Ghost Ranch for more than 25 years.
January weather in this area can have extreme variations, with the possibility of freezing to temperate days; snow, rain and sunshine. Students will need to be prepared to hike in any weather condition.
The course cost is for digital photography. For students interested in black and white photography and darkroom techniques, an add-on is available for $150 to cover materials, chemistry and mounting materials. The darkroom add-on will cap at four students and will result in a portfolio of over a dozen prints, mounting the best.
Students should bring their own film and their own cameras (however, a few loaner cameras may be available).
