COWBOY CULTURE: VISION & DISCOVERY
A NEW PHOTOGRAPHIC WORKSHOP FOR OUR TEXAS FRIENDS... and everyone else. In collaboration with the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops and the Dallas Center for Photography. Hope some of you can join us!
NORTHERN NEW MEXICO: CAPTURE TO PRINT
A professional photographer in New Mexico for more than 24 years, Tony Bonanno shares his in-depth knowledge of the land and its peoples in this five-day photographic adventure. For the first three days, we are based an hour north of Santa Fe at the comfortable Cliff River Springs family ranch, located in the heart of Northern New Mexico’s visual treasures. Vast horizons, deep river gorges, red rock formations, volcanic cinder cones, historic villages, and local artisans provide a richly rewarding array of subject matter.
During the evenings, we continue our high desert immersion, taking in the views of the nearby cliffs, the beautiful swimming pond, and the dark skies illuminated by the Milky Way. No city lights, no cellphone coverage, no traffic ... only our group and the sounds of nature.
Our final two days are spent in The Workshops state-of-the-art digital lab, where Tony leads participants through key elements of post-processing, color management, and printmaking, using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop as our digital darkroom. You see your images come to life in exhibition-quality prints you create yourself using a variety of papers.
This is the land that inspired photographers and painters such as Ansel Adams, Elliott Porter, Laura Gilpin, Paul Strand, and Georgia O’Keeffe. With Tony as your knowledgeable guide, through field experiences and digital lab practice, you explore your own creativity, expand your visual skills, and enhance your understanding of the photographic process, from capture to print.
White Sands: Capture to Print
With Tony Bonanno
“Tony really gave me what I needed to print, and his workshop was exactly what I was looking for!” Glenn Humphrey, past participant, Tony Bonanno printmaking workshop
One of the most scenic and dynamic landscapes of the American West is White Sands National Monument in southern New Mexico. In this combination field/lab workshop, you are inspired and challenged to capture the drama and beauty of the remarkable dune system that covers almost 275 square miles of the Tularosa Basin at the northern end of the Chihuahuan Desert.
Our adventure begins in Alamogordo, New Mexico as we spend two-and-a-half days at White Sands National Monument, exploring our creativity, expanding our visual and technical skills, and learning about the natural and cultural landscape that surrounds us. We then drive to Santa Fe and spend the next two days in The Workshops state-of-art digital lab to process and print our images. Tony reviews, discusses, and guides your image processing workflow, placing special emphasis on color management and archival digital printing using both Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom.
