I’m home from my Alaskan adventure, and I have SO much to share! But first, the reason I went on this excursion, to help some folks learn to Say No to Auto! I am SO SO grateful to Katie Cannon for hosting for me, and for rallying a bunch of her friends to join in the fun. She is an amazing photographer in the Northern Anchorage area, with the desire to want to help her friends capture more beautiful images. She’s in the orange shirt and green pants below. You will see more of her (I took her family pictures on a breathtaking mountain top), and she actually took a bunch of these pics of me below. I was also thrilled to have my hubby attend the workshop. All of the other times, he is watching our kids, and I had been daydreaming/excited for him to finally attend and learn some tricks on the camera. He picked up quick (I knew he would–men are so much more technical brained) and I know he had lots of fun. Here is the group of the great ladies I got to rub shoulers with.
We sat outside on Katie’s porch for a while the weather was so lovely!
Not sure what I’m doing below, bu my hubby took this shot as I was explaining a concept. I think it was the rule of thirds….
I love how he used his foreground to frame his shot with the hanging plant above. He was really listening when I did my TV segment. It’s become a running joke in conversation when shooting.
He looks irritated above, but I’m pretty sure he’s just concentrating on the complex mathematical equations I’m explaining 😉
Transformer shot taken by my hubby–nice bokeh! He really was listening. He even took the group shots without me adjusting anything–it’s SO exciting for ME because he’s understanding more of what I love.
It was a really great workshop, and it was such a terrific group! Alaska chicks rock!
