About this trip

Lisa Langell is launching a new “Photo Artistry” workshop series which will feature instruction, inspiration and camaraderie designed to bring about more artistry in your images! The first location for this unique workshop will be held at Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in Socorro, NM and nearby areas.  It is open to only six (6) participants. 

Incredibly unique!

This workshop will help you see nature from a different viewpoint, process it differently, and bring out your creative side! Though we can photograph nature in the “classic” ways that appeal to magazines, contests and calendars, this workshop will place a strong emphasis on the non-traditional ways of creating art through the lens and in the digital darkroom. Lisa wants to help you develop your artistic and creative skills!

In addition to what Lisa brings to this workshop, there will be a collaborative element as well—an opportunity to grow and share ideas, techniques and information with one another! 

You will learn how to capture:

• Birds-in-flight with a slow-shutter panning technique 

• Intentional Camera Movement/Motion (ICM) to create ethereal images

• Images that are ideally suited for artistic collections and wall art

• High Key Photography 

• Silhouette Photography

• Post processing tips to finish your collection captured during the workshop 

• Traditional nature and wildlife photography
