…and we’re back..

These last couple of weeks on the workshop have been tough. Despite the bad weather and time crunches this time of year brings for many students, we’ve also been facing great sadness with them too. Some significant tragedies have happened in the families of several students this workshop and our collective hearts are aching for them and the loss of their loved ones. And if that wasn’t enough, there has also been a very sad loss for Detra and her family this past week. Her beloved Daddy passed away on Thursday (11/10). We are sending you all warm hugs and hopes for comfort, healing and peace to each of you. I wish I could fly to each one of you and snuggle you to pieces and take all that sadness away, but sadly…the flipside of the great blessing of love, is the anguish of loss.

We are so blessed as photographers to be a part of maintaining the records for our own families, and the family of others through the gift of photographic memories. Get in your photos, snap images of your loved ones often, and don’t forget their (and your) friends…capture the things you love so your grandkids kids will know you a little more…snap your daily, strangers, special places, anyone and anything you can find…shoot shoot shoot, get the idea? – who knows how long we have?

There has been some fabulous learning and recording going on over at the workshop these last couple of weeks. We have been completing assignments in blown backgrounds, pockets of light, natural reflectors and colo(u)r theory. See if you can pick which image went with which assignment. I will post the answers next week!
