High Road to Taos: Capture to Print

October 6 - October 10, 2015

Join photographer, and Santa Fe native, Dottie Lopez for an unforgettable “must see” journey through New Mexico. Together, we take the 59-mile tour from Santa Fe to Taos, traveling a route that celebrates the area's unique culture—history, religion, cuisine, and architectural design, not to mention panoramic vistas.

With Dottie's guidance, participants traverse the High Road to Taos Scenic Byway as it winds through several old Spanish Land Grant villages founded in the 1700’s, including Chimayó (home to a legendary Santuario known as the “Lourdes of America”) and the farming community of Truchas (the setting for the movie The Milagro Beanfield War). Surrounded by rivers, springs, mountain peaks, and verdant valleys, you create images reflecting the treasures and treats of Northern New Mexico, from iconic churches and vintage trucks to expansive high desert landscapes and the inhabitants who populate them.

Our last two-and-a-half days together are spent in The Workshops state-of-the-art digital lab, where Dottie demonstrates the images adjustments—using Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom, as well as various add-ons and plug-ins—that preserve your vision and help your prints come to life with detail, vibrancy, and structure. Through practice and critiques, participants learn the tricks of the trade for producing high-quality archival digital prints.

Join Dottie to explore one of New Mexico's jewels and experience the process of creating fine-art images.
