When people look at my pictures I want them to feel the way they do when they want to read a line of poem twice.
Tammy and I are taking advantage of every workshop we can as we pursue our passion. This past weekend, we traveled to Miami for a trip full of workshops hosted by Photo Scoop Stay In The Loop at Electric Avenue. We started the weekend off with a lighting workshop with Bill Watkins, a 40-plus-year veteran photographer. We also met a new photographer, Carl, who is studying photography at a local university. We convinced him to take the fashion photography workshop with us the following day with the fabulous and talented photographer Cassie Peech. The shoot was held on a downtown Miami rooftop and it was simply amazing. The hands-on work and collaboration with other photographers was priceless. On our last day in Miami, we took to the streets to just photograph whatever moved us. My hubby was a great assistant, chauffeur, and partner in crime. He survived T & T and even volunteered for our next adventure. He's a keeper.
As Tammy is preparing to open her very own studio, I am delighted to be apart of her journey.
Traveling with photographers means that getting home always takes twice as long, as we have to stop and photograph along the way. We were exhausted, but we got some great shots. Always having your camera with you means you can stop and shoot whatever speaks to you. I really do believe that shooting often keeps your eyes focused on the never ending subjects just waiting to be captured.
