Rediscover Your Love of Shooting Work Shop...


...was such a blast! I was about to go to bed, I am EXHAUSTED in the best possible way but just wanted to write about what an incredible day today was.
There were SO many wonderful photographers here all looking for the same thing... re-inspiration.

I have to say that I totally got what I needed to get out of today, a new found love for something that I didn't think that I could love more. I was inspired by how hard everyone worked to think in a new way- to work a lens they had a hard time with or direct a model in front of a crowd that was all eyes and ears. I know how hard that is to put yourself out there like that, so thank you for doing it with me!

This was such a journey for me to go on and I am honored to have had the company of so many wonderful, talented and honest people there with me. I hope that you all left as inspired and motivated as I am now, completely wide awake and crazy as I relive the day and all of the fun we had!

I will post a ton of pictures later, I promise along with a slide show of the day... so please check back!!

thanks steve for rocking it with me!

The BEST damn day! Carla--I loved that you made us leave our comfort zone--shooting with lenses we don't often use, "leading" the model shoots, etc. Seeing everybody else's images was really inspiring, too. Thanks so much for an excellent day!
