Join Elizabeth Opalenik (@elizabethopalenik) in San Miguel de Allende from October 4-9 for her workshop "The Sensual Image". During this workshop gracious figure and dance models share their stories, and we share ours in return, practicing communication and respect for one another as we make images that softly whisper “yes.” Collaborating in small groups, participants experiment with natural lighting techniques while using props that complement their chosen subject and location.

As you expand your awareness and build on your existing skills through creative assignments, Elizabeth Opalenik offers her own experiential insights during model sessions and critiques. Throughout our time together, you are given ample opportunities to utilize your new skills during group field trips around this charming city.

Images are stepping stones that bear the visual imprint of stories left behind, but good images don’t just happen. Quite often our best work lies just beyond our greatest failures. In this workshop's uniquely supportive environment, you learn to transform those failures into fuel for forging new ideas and exploring new paths. #santafeworkshops

Come with an open, fun-loving, curious mind and leave with a new set of skills for making unforgettable emotionally resonant images.

Repost from one of our instructors Jennifer Spelman (@jennifer_spelman) "A shift in focus, the dip of a hat, the opening of an aperture. The quick choices made during the creation of a portrait are subtle, but often become the difference between a snapshot and a true portrait." Join her from July 16-21 for her workshop "Photographing People" and spend your days practicing how to make portraits with impact.
