Photography Workshop: Photographing the Spirit of Rancho La Puerta
Join Connie for tips, demonstrations, and group participation. Photography can be a walking meditation. Leading from our hearts, we will photograph the spirit of Rancho la Puerta, using water and movement as tools to transform images to a more spiritual domain. Bring your camera but you are welcome even if you do not have one.
