Kyoto, with its ancient temples, imperial palaces, wooden houses, cobbled lanes, geishas, and tea ceremonies, represents the epitome of traditional Japanese culture. The workshop is at the peak of autumn foliage when the trees range from bright yellows to flaming reds. Bob Sacha will work with participants using still photography and/or video with an emphasis, for those who desire, on storytelling.
