"Call to Artists: Photographing Ghost Ranch - A Black-and-White Darkroom and Field Photography Workshop"
2004-03-03 until 2003-05-29
New Mexico Photography Field School
Santa Fe, NM,
USA United States of America
The acclaimed New Mexico Photography Field School presents a new workshop and the first of its 2004 season – a special weeklong adventure at Ghost Ranch, New Mexico from May 23 through 29. This workshop will emphasize darkroom procedures and techniques and photographing with black and white film. All camera formats are welcome.
Once home to artist Georgia O’Keeffe, Ghost Ranch is over 22,000 acres of sand and sage, plains and mesas, clouds and shadows. To photograph Ghost Ranch calls for the combination of the technical and the aesthetic. Through directed and undirected field work, participants will focus on the techniques necessary to properly expose black and white film. Participants will then have the opportunity to work in the darkroom to create expressive black and white prints of their images.
Now in its 18th year, the New Mexico Photography Field School is unique in its offerings: hands-on photography workshops in the Southwest’s canyons, hills, riversides, and villages. The Field School Director and Instructor Craig Varjabedian has been teaching photography for twenty-five years. His photographs are known for their powerful interpretations of light and place in the Southwest. David Glosson, noted photographer and photography instructor from Colin County Community College in Plano, Texas, will be joining Craig to teach this workshop. Together David and Craig will help participants hone and personalize the black and white photographic process.
