New Mexico Tour 2018
New Mexico is truly a land of enchantment. The diversity of the State is eye candy for the photographer and a joy to behold. Join photographers Wayne Bennett and Julie Lee for a tour of New Mexico, based out of Albuquerque and Santa Fe.
You will be introduced to some of the most amazing scenery and cultural areas in the United States. We plan trips to VLA (Very Large Array), west of Socorro with drives through the rugged wilderness to the west of Albuquerque. We will explore the remnants of old Route 66 and some of the diverse Native American areas. Not to forget the influence from the south, we will explore the Salinas Pueblo Missions to the east of Albuquerque. In Albuquerque we will visit Old Town, which is the original site of Albuquerque. Central Street is old Rte 66 through Albuquerque with many old Rte 66 remnants like the Kimo Theater.
To the north on the way to Santa Fe, we will visit the town of Madrid, a very eclectic artists colony, as well as other photo ops on the way north.
From Santa Fe we will explore Georgia O’Keeffe country at Ghost Ranch near the town of Abiquiu. The scenery in this area is breathtaking. After taking the high road to Taos from Santa Fe we will explore Taos Pueblo and visit San Francisco de Asis church, made famous by Ansel Adams and Georgia O’Keeffe. Morning ventures will yield some of he most dramatic sunrises you can imagine. We will visit Tent Rocks on the Cochiti Reservation, some 9500 feet above sea level, which has some amazing rock formations. We will also explore the historic areas of Santa Fe, New Mexico’s charming capital city.
The tour is limited to 10 participants with a minimum of 4 participants. You will be advised in mid-February if the minimum is not met.
Please join us for an interesting and unforgettable adventure in the enchanted land of New Mexico.
New Mexico Tour 2018
Join Wayne Bennett and Julie Lee for a photographic tour of the Palouse, the wonderfully graphic landscape of Southeastern Washington State.
The topography of the Palouse was formed millions of years ago and is a virtual wonderland of rolling hills, interspersed with picturesque barns and farm buildings. We will explore the back roads of the Palouse, discovering the magic of the terrain.
We will also spend time learning the following: long exposure techniques, time lapse techniques, image stacking, light painting, night photography (depending on the moon phase) and IR photography. We will spend time teaching you how to incorporate “motion” techniques into your photography. This opens up a whole new dimension to your photographic techniques.
