The American Southwest is a beautiful but challenging environment for photographers. That’s why, over Spring Break, instructor Mike Godsil ’76 led his Southwest Desert Photography Workshop to sites across New Mexico, Colorado, and Utah. One thing the eight students learned quickly: Landscapes keep their own schedules, independent of the photographer’s preferences. Vaughn Hadenfeldt, our guide in Bluff, Utah, told us that visitors can easily spend five hours in a single location as they scout the best angle and wait for the perfect light.
