i may teach others how to take photos, but to be better at everything that i do it's absolutely essential that i allow myself to also be taught. my decision to attend FIND was one that i'm so grateful i made. there are so many things that i gained from attending. i gained new friends, a renewed direction for my personal work, confidence that i've chosen the right path, more technical knowledge about the tools in my camera bag and above all i am now part of a family that supports, cares about and cheers for one another as we all strive to succeed. you want my advice? attending a focused workshop, taught by someone whom you respect, is an essential part of succeeding yourself. it's worth every penny you could invest in it and more. don't ever be hesitant about investing in yourself. you are worth it.
let me share with you one of the most valuable perspectives i gained while at the workshop:
so what is FIND? well it's 3 intensive days of critiques, individual feedback, instruction, technical advice, and shooting workshops plus one afternoon of a journey to create personal work. there's incredible food, and lots of it! there's good friends and lots of laughs. the days are long but the whole experience flies right on by and seems to go too fast.
jonathan canlas heads it up and he is a complete open book before, during and after the workshop.
in 3 days i shot 10+ rolls of film. so there's a lot of shots that i could share with you. instead of sharing every single shot though, i'm going to just post a small selection of my favorites.
