Gone to See Patagonia 2010/2011. Photography Workshop with Thom Hogan. Day 2: Buenos Aires, Argentina.
We began the day with a continuation of the intense foundation of photographic principles lecture by Thom. We then got on a Mercedes bus (similar frame and engine as my Roadtrek RV) to spend a couple of hours in the very colorful La Boca (read — a target rich environment to begin the hands on part of the workshop. I have included a couple of example images from this location. [Note, I will not have much time while on the workshop to process/edit the images. I am also not sure if we will have internet access in some of the location we will be visiting.] Following La Boca, we took the bus to the world-famous Recoleta Cemetery. On the way to Recoleta, we picked up Anthony Medici (Thom’s assistant) who had missed his original flight due to all of the snow in the Northeast. We spent 3+ hours taking images in the cemetery. Thom was helping, and challenging us to use the principles he had introduced during the two lectures. Tomorrow is a travel day to Helsingfors Estancia in the western region of Glacier National Park (the one in Argentina, not the United States).
