Bosque and Beyond Photo Workshop
November 28 – December 2, 2018

Join Rick Sammon and Hal Schmitt and make images with impact in Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, at the Very Large Array (VLA), at an awesome junkyard, and at the beautiful San Miguel Mission in Socorro, New Mexico.

You will learn how to photograph birds in flight and birds in good light and in challenging light. You will also learn about composition and exposure while photographing at the VLA and at Rick’s favorite junkyard. Want to learn how to enhance your images in Lightroom and Photoshop? You’ve come to the right place. And if you want an honest opinion of the images you make on the workshop, you’ll get that during our group slide show/critique session.  What’s more, you will have a ton of fun!
