This was my first mentor session (I've never done a workshop either) so I was very excited. The entire day was so awesome and two days later my mind is still on photography overload. I learned so much and was so inspired. I can't wait to pick up my camera and start experimenting, making mistakes, and putting some of what I learned into practice.
I also had the opportunity to tag along with Claudia as she shot an engagement session. For the first time ever I forgot the battery for my camera (of all days right! what good is my camera with NO BATTERY! omg - I felt like a moron) but that's okay - it wasn't about me shooting, it was about learning and being inspired - which I definitely was. It was awesome to see how she actually works and afterwards we went back to her place where we went over programs, workflow, post processing - it was awesome.
I can't say enough good things about Claudia. For someone so accomplished in her field she is so down to earth and didn't make me feel stupid at any of the questions I asked. Quite the opposite! She said my work was really good & that she thought she wouldn't have anything to teach me! I was blown away lol because I feel I have so much to learn.
Claudia's already blogged the engagement session that I tagged along to watch her shoot - so definitely check out the images on her blog.
Now time to go jot down some photography related things that are swirling around in my head.
