I am SO excited! Wait, let me say that again....

I AM SO EXCITED about the photography workshops that I will be attending in November!!!

First and foremost.....
I'm thrilled to say that I'll be one of only 12 ladies who are attending the 'Dream Big' Advanced Photography Workshop in Dallas. This workshop is sponsored by I Heart Faces. The two lovely co-founders, Angie and Amy are the hosts of this one-day, 10 hour class!

Here is the official link.

But here's a brief overview of what we will cover:

~Ideas for Posing clients and interesting "detail" shots.
~Natural Lighting techniques
~Off Camera Flash (I need help with this!)
~Basic Studio Lighting (ooh, yes. This will be interesting too!)

~Photoshop and Lightroom tricks!
~Optimizing images for the web and prints
~Work flow ideas
~Creating slide shows

~Business marketing ideas
~Legal "stuff"
~Blogging (woot, woot!)
~Balancing family and 'work'

Oooh, and the "extras":

~Portfolio building (adult and child) photo shoots!!!!
~Time to ask questions (this is priceless!)
~HUGE goodie bag! (Oh my I'm so excited!)
~More doorprizes =)
~Discount shopping trip at Arlington Camera. (are you kidding me?!)
~Food. (Hello, a bunch of ladies....we need to eat!)

I can't wait to go. My hubby and kids will be going to Dallas with me so not only will I have an amazing day of Photography fun. The rest of the weekend is a family vacation!

Then a few weeks later, I'll be at a different workshop in Phoenix, AZ. To be honest, I'm not quite as excited for this one (as it's much less personal) but hey, a day full of photography is good enough for me! I'll be attending the Val Westover Photography Clinic. It's a 2-part session, with the morning be a classroom-learning type thing. Mostly photography's always good to get a refresher. Then in the afternoon we get to have a 2-hour photo session. I'm not sure of all the details on this one yet. But being back "home" it should be a great time!

I can't wait to tell you all about these 2 amazing days of PHOTOGRAPHY!
Pin It!
