Fall Colors Galore – G190934

Workshop ID: G190934
Dates: September 29 - October 5
Price: $675.00 - $1,195.00

Join Kent and John as you search out and capture images in brilliant splashes of color along the canyon floors and mountain tops that herald the advent of fall. Participants will drive and hike to exquisite locations and experience the best of northern New Mexico’s autumn color. The course will highlight digital photography and concentrate on developing/improving each photographer’s skill and experience. All levels of photographic experience are welcomed.

Bring the camera and gear you wish to use and a personal laptop/tablet with image editing programs pre-loaded. We encourage group sharing and input, yet respect and build on individual expression. Participants should be able to walk 3 to 5 miles over uneven terrain at elevations of 6-11K feet. Early, late and all-day sessions are to be expected.

IMPORTANT NOTE: At this time only communal bath style lodging, camping options and commuter status are available. Private and semi-private lodging may become available within 30 days of the start date. Please note your willingness to upgrade in the notes section of the registration form.
