In my time as a photographer, I have not attended a “photography workshop”; I have read a lot of books, watched videos, taken colleges courses and attended online classes. On top of that has just been a lot of hands on experience.
So why am I going to a workshop at this point? Well in this case the first reason is a chance to get hands on time with one of my favorite photographers, Tony Sweet. If you have never looked at has work, take time to peruse his blogs or website, www.tonysweet.com. A second reason to go is to see how a workshop is run. I am teaching students now days and may want to run a workshop of my own in time.
I will be at this workshop for most of the week so I don’t know if I will get in another blog entry in during the workshop. I suspect I will be busy processing and shooting images. I will let you know how the workshop goes.
Blog Image: A tranquil scene of a trestle over calm water. The strong horizontal lines in the water is what caught my eye. This image has basically just been converted to B&W in Lightroom 2.
