In the autumn season, nature rewards us with a sensuous palette of colors. Ghost Ranch is about slowing down and connecting with the sacredness of the landscape. Come explore the red rocks, deep blue skies and blazing yellow cottonwoods with your camera. While most photography classes focus on technical competency, this class takes a mindfulness approach, emphasizing intuition and imagination. When we release expectations of how things ought to look, we free ourselves to create artistic images that come from our soul. Imagine an entire week with just you and your camera, surrounded in beauty by the golden autumn landscape of Ghost Ranch. Tap into your intuition, your creative spirit and your five senses. Join kindred spirits at this unique workshop. It will change the way you take photos and it just may change the way you see the world. A series of exercises will be offered each morning to engage the senses and improve your powers of observation and composition. Guided hikes and field work will be available or participants may choose to work on their own. We will photograph sunrises, sunsets and visit sacred landscapes around Ghost Ranch and the surrounding area. Digital images will be loaded onto a computer for sharing and group reflection. All levels welcome.
