Once again thank you so much for stopping by; it means the world to me. Well today was another big day of learning and inspiring. I have to admit that out of the 5 workshops we saw today Peter Hurley, Joe McNally, and Jay Maisel were amazing! I have admired Joe McNally since I picked up the camera. The man is just amazing and every time I see his work or hear him speak a fire is lit inside me that I can't explain! I actually think I may have converted Cliff to wanting to be a Nikon shooter after making him watch Joe. Also listening to Jay Maisel and looking at his iconic images was unbelievably humbled and speechless. It seriously has me sleepless and wanting to grab my camera and start making some amazing images!!!
If the day had ended here it would have lived up to its title of being EPIC, but at an other icon hit the stage; Gregory Heisler. This man, in my opinion, is the Ansel Adams/ Henri Cartier-Bresson of Portraiture. And to listen to him live speak about his life and imagery was unexplainable!
As if that wasn't enough for the day we attended Madness, which was really at 10. This is where the allow about 200 people in and play games and you get some free swag. Cliff and I go every year for the free swag. And this year I won a gift card!
Well that ended our EPIC day. we will finish off the conference early after and start the trek to Zion National Park. Sorry there weren't any pictures taken today of people talking, but the images we have posted are more from the workshop . We hope you enjoy them.
Today was a busy day! Got up early (too early) to get tickets to Midnight Madness. It had better be worth it or I'm walking home. Scotty dragged me to two, count them two Joe McNally sessions. I am now a McNally convert. The next thing you know I'll be selling my Canon gear to buy Nikon! NO!!! I have to draw the line somewhere. Today has been an amazing day in photography for me. I am energized and motivated to take my art to the next level.
