Saturday at the Art Weekend

{read more posts about my experiance going to the art weekend here, here, here, and here.}

Saturday morning I woke up, packed up, and left for the art weekend. I was so sad to be leaving Kristine's place. We hardly had any time together.

(Below are photos of Kristine's cute kitchen.)


(Above is Nicole, teaching photo 101.)

At the Art Weekend, I took 4 classes. Photoshop 101, Photography 101, Digital Work flow for Photographers, and Tabletop Photography. (each class was 2 hours long)

I started shooting pictures with my first SLR when I was about 14. It was so good for me to learn on film. In Nicole's photo 101 class, she challenged us to go back to film for 6 MONTHS. It forces you to get each shot spot on. (since money is defiantly not on your side)

Most of the classes were more like a review for me except the Tabletop photography class. You can see a photo I took in that class,
here. Still life and food photography is very complex yet, I LOVE it!

All in all, the weekend was exactly what I needed. I feel more confident and excited about my photography. If you are at all interested in photography I suggest that you take a class or attend something like I did. It will teach you so much and excite you about it all.

Katelyn, I LOVE the new header!!! Very stinkin' cute! The photography class sounds amazing. That is so awesome that you were able to go.

WOW! What a great learning weekend! Wish I had the time and money to do those. One day...

I first started shooting film when I was 7. It took a long time to let go of it - I continued to shoot with my film camera for almost a year after I got my DSLR. There are conviencenes you get with digital you don't get with film, but I feel like I'm actually creating art with my film. Aren't we blessed to have both technologies available to us now?!

I am so glad you could go to this. Now I wish I would've/could've gone. And obviously I loved having you come here. Come again...I have gluten free cereal waiting :)

I wish I could go to something like this! It'd be a dream come true! But my mom and I aren't exactly on speaking terms right now so I doubt she'd pay for me to go. And there's no way Reese would let me go either! Maybe someday...
