Just returning from four beautiful days in New Orleans, Louisiana - a state I had never visited before! The Pictage Partnercon 2009 was the reason I went - convening with 500 other Pictage photographers to share ideas, inspiration, techniques. And I am so glad I was there! Some highlights of the trip:
Joining Chris Williams, a New Orleans photographer, on a photo tour of the 9th ward, the section of New Orleans worst hit by Hurricane Katrina. Emotional, and powerful, and makes me want to join the REBIRTH cheering section for those moving back into the 9th ward and rebuilding their community!
Other highlights include workshops of Jules Bianchi, a California wedding photographer who has LOTS of energy and inspiration for all of us! The last photo here is a photo as part of an assignment issued in Kevin Kubota's workshop, called The Laying Down photo.... hard to explain the details here... but maybe you'll get the idea if you visit Kevin's Blog!
