Looking for a Workshop
I'm hungry. That's the only way I can describe it. I feel a great hole inside me regarding photography, wanting to go to a new level or learn a new skill or rediscover something or figure out something that's been eluding me. So, I'm looking for classes and workshops. I want to get with other photographers in a focused, artistic setting. I want to try film again-to compose an image based on what I know about aperture, film speed, light and shutter speed instead of always doing what the camera tells me to do. I used to do it all the time, now it scares me and I feel like I should do it again in the same way that I want to get back on a roller coaster or water ski again before I give into my fears and say I'm too old. I want to figure out what I'm really good at, what moves me, what makes me love to pick up my camera. I know the answers to some of those questions, but not all of them, so I want to go beyond what I can figure out on my own and learn more. I've been looking through folders upon folders of images trying to get to the nugget of my photography. I don't know if I've found it yet, but I've loved looking and have realized that I really, really do like making photographs, just for myself.
