With very little formal background in photography … I came here to improve my photography and that is exactly what I did. I am very grateful and thrilled with the results. The most valuable aspects of the workshop were the technical ones, as well as the time to practice and think about my work. I especially enjoyed the Parade of the Canastas and the Dance of the Feather. It was truly an honor to be here at such a special time. Many thanks, Deanna Chute, San Francisco, California, participant, Oaxaca Photography Workshop: Market Towns and Artisan Villages, summer 2012.
