KB_photoJust as Ansel Adams did in the Autumn of 1937, you, too, can come and photograph the amazing Ghost Ranch landscape. This course is designed for students who want to learn the foundations and benefits of black and white photography, but also who want to learn about the mystical aspects of the desert. Previous experience is not necessary. A great deal of time will be spent learning and practicing photography, with extensive darkroom time. The schedule will be rounded out with readings, studying imagery and field trips. This course is an intensive experience (you will be outdoors – often in the cold), but the rewards and results are amazing.
