We were on the bus again Saturday morning to head to Tent Rocks National Monument where we photographed the volcanic formations and explored a wonderful slot canyon with great patterns, textures, and colour. The downside of the bright New Mexico sun was that it overpowered many of our photographs and we learned to modify our compositions to minimize it's impact. In the afternoon we drove to an Indian reserve south of Santa Fe where we were introduced to a family from the tribe who performed several dances for us dressed in native costumes. This also provided an opportunity to take portraits of the dancers in their regalia and for the mentors to demonstrate the advantage of using flash to enhance our images - even in the bright midday sun. The difference was amazing! We returned to Santa Fe and following a break for supper took a group walk downtown in the historic plaza. It was an opportunity to take pictures of the buskers, the art fair, and the architecture. Of course the mentors also scheduled time during the day to review our selected images and offer some valuable insights into improving these particular images and our photography in general.
