I was also just dipping my toe (other foot) in the photography pool, and was led to Barb's Itty Bitty Actions site as I was learning about Photoshop actions.
I was immediately hooked by her style.
Barb's photos are magical.
They immediately transport you to a place where make-believe is reality.
Where boys can be boys.
Where whimsy is the norm.
A place where color sings.
And black and white tells its own beautiful story.
Barb's photos make you feel like a kid again.
Each time I visit her blog, I find myself wondering how such magic is created.
In an amazing turn of events, I'm going to get a chance to find out for myself.
This summer, Barb is going to be holding workshops in the U.S.
Now here's the truly amazing part. Not only do I get the opportunity to attend a Jinkyart workshop, I get the unbelievable privilege to actually host several of Barb's workshops right here at Meadowbrook Farm.
I know. I still can't quite believe it myself.
It will truly be the opportunity of a lifetime for me to be able to learn from someone with such talent. I'm so thankful that Barb chose my little corner of the world as one of her U.S. locations. I'm extremely excited, and at the moment a bit overwhelmed with all that needs to be done before July.
I know I sound like a broken record, but it's still raining here, and my gardens are a soggy, weedy mess. But the time has come, rain or shine, to tackle the beast, free the little plant prisoners from the greenhouse, and pretend summer is on its way. I have exactly one month to get this place in tip-top shape and I'm not quite sure how that's going to happen.
I'll keep you posted!
If you have a moment, pop over to the Jinkyart website and make sure you watch the movie of a Jinkyart photoshoot. Very sweet. And if you'd like to join us for a workshop, there are a few seats left.
It's going to be fun!
