The first workshop is over, and it was truly wonderful. Barb is an absolutely amazing teacher, and I've already learned so much my head is about to explode. I can't wait to get out and put it all into practice. If you're a photographer and ever get a chance to go to a JinkyArt workshop.....GO! You'll be so glad you did.
My camera stayed in its bag for most of the time on this first go round, but it will definitely be making an appearance for the next one. The workshop participants were all so very talented and nice, the weather cooperated (my biggest worry), and the models were absolutely adorable and very photogenic. I don't think it could have gone better.
One down, two to go.
I have had so much fun getting to know my new friends from Down Under. Barb is traveling with her lovely family and two friends/Girl Fridays extraordinaire. They are good people - lots and lots of fun and so very, very nice. (So fun and so nice I had to double the adverbs, or modifiers or whatever "lots" and "very" are, in order to do them justice.)
As you can see by my post title, I'm trying desperately to get my Aussie on, but I think I've got a bit to go. My favorite new vocabulary word is grotty, which perfectly describes the bag of garbage I went through today (from last Friday), (that's four day old garbage in case you're keeping track), (and it's been in the 90's), (yum), in order to try and find the fork (borrowed from my mother-in-law) that went missing after our first dinner. Fortunately, the wayward utensil was toward the top.
The next workshop starts Wednesday, so I should be back soon with some fun photos to share.
See you soon!
Update! Barb has just posted insanely gorgeous workshop photos on her blog. You must check them out!
