Winter travels will once again take me back to San Miguel de Allende in the central Mexican highlands. In between catching up with friends and trying to keep my Spanish alive I have several photo projects planned, including a barter plan with a fellow photographer - home cooked dinners in exchange on lessons in studio lighting. There is a never-ending list of things to learn in photography….
In March I will be spending time in the southwest, visiting friends and family and looking for the earthen “s” curves and lines that nature scatters so generously throughout New Mexico, Arizona and Utah. The planned highlights include photographing the gypsum dunes of White Sands National Monument and donning a big orange survival suit to try canyoneering in Zion National Park. No, I won’t be taking my Nikon with me as I repel down cold wet canyon walls, but my first digital point and shoot may come along for a potentially sacrificial ride. Many more adventures will ensue and I am open to suggestions from those of you who know this part of the world.
