Photography is a journey of the heart and soul. It is a creative outlet for your inner artist. The best part is, the more you improve your skills, the easier it is to enter that meditative state where nothing else exists in that moment except you and your camera. Here is your opportunity to improve your skills and take your art to the next level.

Kent marks the third generation of professional photographers in his family. His grandfather documented World War I and the Dust Bowl; his father, a B-24 pilot in World War II, documented that war, returning home to run the family photography business; and Kent has been shooting since he was seven. A member of the Albuquerque Photographers’ Gallery, his award-winning work has been shown in galleries and museums, and collected internationally. A trial lawyer for thirty years, he returned to fine art photography full-time; teaching, judging, and, of course, making photographs. He has photographed nudes for almost forty years both with his beloved Hasselblad and digitally.

Ever wonder how some news photographers are able to photograph people in a way that looks natural and captures their personality? The ability to approach strangers, to connect with them quickly on an emotional level and come away with a revealing photograph, is a skill that takes time and practice to develop. But it can be learned. This workshop draws on the instructor’s nearly thirty years of photojournalism experience to give participants insight on how to create meaningful photographs that show emotion and tell a story. Learn how to connect with and relax your subject, how to use environment to make a more telling portrait, how to capture genuine moments as they happen, and how to use available light to your advantage. This is not traditional studio portraiture.
The Art of Black and White Conversion
Date: Wednesday March 6, 2013, 6-8PM

Imagine the photographs that Ansel Adams could create with today’s digital tools! He’d envy the software that converts our photographs into beautiful black and white photos. We'll explore these tools in this workshop as we discuss what color photographs are good candidates for conversion, how to convert, evaluate, and fine tune the results. Along the way, we'll explore the Zone System applied to digital imaging, HDR, Photoshop, Lightroom, and Silver Efex Pro, and successful printing techniques, inks, and fine art papers. Most importantly, we’ll probe the emotions and reasons why you might want to convert a color photo to black and white and discover the elements that lead to exceptional, powerful images.
