I recently hosted my first full weekend workshop at a local gallery in my hometown. Since the gallery put the workshop on, I did not have to worry about getting participants. My job was simple; show up and teach.
My workshop was called; Making Photos, and it was a class designed for photographers of any skill level with any camera looking to improve their lighting and composition in their photography. Here is what I learned: Continue Reading
