Split Rock was a long-running program that offered week-long residential workshops in creative writing, visual arts, and creativity enhancement. Most workshops, including Digital Nature Photography, were based out of the University of Minnesota Cloquet Forestry Center. The northern Minnesota location allowed Craig Blacklock to take students to enchanted bogs, deep forests, and Lake Superior’s rugged shoreline.
Classroom instruction focused on technical aspects of DSLR photography with additional lessons on composition, color, and artistic expression. Each student was able to choose two of his or her favorite images to be included in this heirloom-quality, leather-bound book.
