Rarefied Light 2017 Workshop

The Color of Light

This acclaimed workshop is intended for both advanced amateur and professional photographers who want to strengthen their ability to see and work in color. Through daily photographic assignments, critiques, and discussions, participants acquire techniques that enhance their perception of light and its effects on color, composition, and design. Throughout the weekend, Arthur guides and inspires by showing examples of both his personal and professional work.

The workshop begins with an intensive review of each participant’s images examining what is working as well as what areas need work. Arthur leads group critiques and spends time explaining how light and color work as well as challenging individuals to move toward their next step photographically. Daily assignments put classroom techniques into practice as well as illustrating the aesthetics of color photography. Participants leave at the end of the weekend with a greater awareness of their strengths and an enhanced awareness of light and color.

Photo Tuesday // Gayle Neufeld @ Anchorage Museum
Sep 18 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Join us for September’s Photo Tuesday with guest speaker Gayle Neufeld!

‘A Photographic Journey Through East Africa’ will encompass photos and stories about her 5 week travel through East Africa.

East Africa is the Africa of childhood longings, a wild kingdom of remarkable landscapes, brilliant sunsets, wonderful and diverse peoples, and extraordinary wildlife in one of our planet’s most fascinating corners. This is untamed Africa, where wildebeest, zebras, and antelope move by the millions across the earth to follow the rain; where lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas and wild dogs wander unhindered in search of their next meal; where nothing can prepare you for the impact of encountering a fully-grown silverback gorilla, extremely powerful yet remarkably gentle.

Africa has fascinated me for as long as I can remember. Last fall I traveled for five weeks through Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda, experiencing wildlife in 12 National Parks, Reserves, and Sanctuaries. This show highlights some of the most amazing wildlife and incredible landscapes of East Africa.
