We finished the workshop today and it was a blast! You would never believe how rewarding it is to just give and watch a group of people grow right before your eyes. I'm exhausted now but every time I think about the students from the past two days engulfed in shooting and learning it brings me right back to life. I even forgot to eat this evening. Will do that soon.
To the experience KNIGHT #4 Students: Thank you for your willingness to learn and your openness to my uncanny (at times) teaching style. It is now time for you to join the forum (invite coming soon) with all of the other past experience KNIGHT attendees. I am overjoyed when I think of how you will certainly expand your photographic skills, build new relationships within our network and connect with other photographers in your respective cities. Continue to Build Community Through Photography! That is my dream and hopefully now it is part of your reality.
This day would not be complete if I did not mention something I learned just yesterday. Many times on this blog you have seen comments from a friend of mine, Hope. She's an amazing story teller, photographer, and poet. This past summer I did a photoshoot and titled the blog entry - The Silent Shadow Portrait. There was a poem posted and the author remained anonymous. I found out during this workshop that the poem was written by one of the current participants. She wishes to remain anonymous but if you have time you should really click this link then scroll through the comments to read the poem. It is beautiful.
As for the images in this post - since I always tend to feature the ladies I decided to give the guys some love. Enough for tonight. Blog you later.
