I’ve got wads of photos to post and stories to tell, including new photos my sister sent of the twins, and dang, they are cute little things, completely OFF all breathing support if you can believe it. Today they hit a big milestone, 32 weeks gestation, though I’m not sure you can call it that when they have been ex-utero for ten days. Photos coming soon, I promise!
But. In the thick of all this I went off to spend the day with the lovely Carla TenEyck at her studio, where she taught an all-day photography workshop. We had a blast, and learned a lot despite shooting in the pouring rain for hours and then doing lots and lots of quality critique. Plus it was Cinco de Mayo and Carla COOKED…yum. Pozole, plus we had guac and salsa, and girl scout cookies and brownies…like I said, yum.
One of the day’s models, Strider.
Our shooting goals were in learning to see differently, and looking for beauty where you might not expect it.
We found it in the lovely Amanda of Orchard Cove Photography, who was our very patient model (and guardian of Strider).
She’s looking at Strider, of course.
Bruce shooting Amanda. His stuff was DREAMY.
We all seemed to work dandelions into our shooting assignments.
I thought they went well with diamonds.
Thank you, amazing Carla (and Amanda and Strider!) for a fantastic day of fun, learning and food. I highly recommend other photographers of all skill levels think about this one.
It’s a terrific, creative day, and you won’t regret it!
