This is your chance to photograph the local treasures you usually drive right by, where over 20,000 petroglyphs from 1300 and earlier await your rediscovery. Join photographer Mark Bohrer for photography at Petroglyph National Monument Saturday morning, March 8, at 8:30 AM. He’ll help you understand how the cinder cones and the Rio Grande Rift made the rock ‘canvas’ for the petroglyphs, and who carved them.
You’ll also discover how to make the ‘glyphs pop in your pictures. This is a free program, but you do need to bring your adjustable camera, a tripod if you have one, water, and comfortable walking shoes. Mark will help you with the fine points of exposure settings and composition, but you should know how to use your camera. Bring a polarizing filter and ½ neutral density filter if you have them.
We will meet at the Petroglyph National Monument Visitor Center promptly at 8:30 AM to discover what you’ll be shooting, then drive to Piedras Marcadas Canyon to walk and photograph until 11:00 AM.
Attendance limited to 10, so please only RSVP if you are serious about going on this meetup!!
***You must RSVP here AND also contact the visitor's center to reserve your spot: Larry Gore (505)[masked] ext 338 or email [masked] ***
