Tom and Sam Robbins team teach the Oaxaca Photography Workshop: Market Towns and Artisan Villages. They are both published photographers and experienced classroom teachers, so they bring the best of both worlds to us. Tom is a stickler for detail and a technical geek, so he pays attention to camera settings, ISO, aperture and shutter speed. Tom’s photos usually explore his interest in structure and form reflecting his architectural training. His sweeping landscapes and rural buildings are published in Black and White Magazine. His stretch during this workshop was to focus more on people! Both Tom and Sam use an innovative, experimental art lens, called the Lensbaby Muse (Sam calls it a Woogity), to get just the right amount of distortion to make a photograph interesting and artful. You can see more of their work at their website. Click on each photo to get the full screen view and lots of detail.
For our next photography workshop, consider the cultural immersion experience we provide during Day of the Dead.
