Favourite Images from Workshop 12 {Part 4}

First, let me share the exciting news that early registration will open tonight at 10pm EDT. The best pricing happens at Early Registration…. grab your spot tonight.

And now, I am also very happy to share another set of students favourite images. We were so blessed with photographers that constantly just sort better and better of themselves, and really pushed their own limits far beyond what they thought possible at the start of the workshop. It sends chills down my spine to see this process evolve. SO photographers, you all rock, thank you so very much for creating your visions and working your light. Thank you for being a part of our journey here on the Light Workshop – Finding the Light.  – gail xoxo

Workshop 12 (Spring) finished a couple of weeks ago and I have been asking students to share a favourite image of theirs that they took during the workshop for one of the assignments. I am so pleased to be able to show off a few more gorgeous images from our students. I am sure you will agree they have certainly captured pure magic. enjoy!

I am so excited to share another set of images from some of the students of the spring Finding the Light Workshop (Workshop 12) held online over the last few weeks. It is always a thrill to be able to watch the development of each photographer as they walk their journey in “finding the light”. We absolutely love being a part of this journey together and are truly excited to see where these roads might take them.

Favourite Images from Workshop 12 (part 1)

Another great workshop class just ended and many people are feeling the loss of the community built during the workshop. It’s so neat to see groups of students forming facebook groups so that they can continue their online support, learning and sharing. That’s how we roll here at The Light Workshop.

Detra, Jenny and I (Gail) are so grateful for each student and their willingness to learn, push themselves and keep on trying. Remarkable images full of  delicious light have been produced in the last 9 weeks.  All the best in your light finding journeys! And we can’t wait to meet the new students in September.

I asked students to share a favorite image they had taken during the workshop here is the first installment. xo Gail
