I just noticed that it has been a month since I last posted, thanks to the Flu epidemic of 2012, a fantabulous photography workshop, 20 hundred Senior sessions, and learning the ins and outs of lightroom 4…I have been a little busy. I never would have thought my brain could be loaded with so much information in such a short period of time. But, it hasn’t exploded yet, so I consider this WINNING!
I attended After Dark Education in Rockwall, Texas the week of February 27th through March 1st and WOW what an experience it was. I first learned about the hands on workshop through Professional Photographers of America last year, and when they held it in Dallas I called up my friend Lori who is also a photographer and asked if she would want to go with me. Luckily her husband didn’t throw too big of a fit and let her go. ha! It was by far the most hands on workshop that I have ever been to. Top photographers from around the country give classes and then there is a large selection of models for you to work with. So, if you know anybody interested in modeling…I will be glad to give them some info on getting their portfolio built. Every year I try to attend two workshops, but at the very minimum one, because I am constantly pushing myself to be better than before. Photography is something that is constantly changing, so what you learned five years ago will not always apply to this years market. But, the last time I was able to go to such an extensive and more than two day workshop was when I was pregnant with my now five year old…and folks, that’s too long!
