A representative from Leica Akademie will be on campus daily during the workshop, sharing knowledge and providing the opportunity for workshop participants to use loaner Leica cameras and lenses.
Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to level up your black and white photography!
Black and white is a way of seeing and appreciating the world with insightful, illuminating, timeless consistency. In this workshop, we focus on the big picture, exploring technology, aesthetics, and individual artistry that goes into creating evocative monochrome imagery.
We slow down during this special week in Santa Fe taking time to consider how the progression of technology has shifted the character of black-and-white images over the past century. By delving into key characteristics of light, you learn how to control your camera and digital editing tools to express your inspiration.
As we engage in a range of photographic experiences, you hone your style and focus your intention, deepening your concept of what it means to make a powerful black-and-white photograph. Daily lectures and group discussions, image reviews, guest photographer presentations, and on-location photographic opportunities leave you with an expanded vision, fresh inspiration, and a sense of mastery over the medium.
If you already love black and white and want to dive deeper and push your work further, please join us for a magical week surrounded by the beauty of Santa Fe.
