We are entering the month of February, and we are already at assignment number five… “the weather”. The work shown is wonderful, and there are some amazing shooters. I cannot tell you how excited I am by this project. If you are not on board, you can jump in any time. All assignments will be available for you to work on at your own pace.
This month schedule so far:
Vokle Chats on Friday, February 4, 2011 at noon (for our European friends) and 7PM for our US followers. Saturday there will be a live shoot with question/answers from the studio working on small item photography.
We will have four live shoots with question/answers from the studio this month. They will be announced as soon as we can get them scheduled.
Workshops in the bag so far are Phoenix and San Diego. We had a blast at both. So much to learn, so many ways to go. The workbook has been finalized, and will be available for members next week. Good news is that it has been expanded to 84 pages with some additional new info. If you are a member, you know where to get it. Watch this space for more information.
In less than two weeks, Selina’s wonderful ‘Clarion Call 2011″ will happen. It is a 14 hour set of conference calls over two days. I speak on the second day. Find out more information here and register to get in on this. It will be amazing, and it has no precedence as far as I know. While there are many ‘courses’ and webinars out there trying to sell you something (and there is nothing wrong with that), this one has the mission of education. That is pretty cool. Audio interview with Selina is here. There is a link there to get to the signup page. You can’t go wrong with this amazing set of speakers.
Now, let’s get on with looking at some of the images that caught our eyes for the “Still Life” assignment. This kind of work is very normal in the world of commercial photography, so being conversant with small objects and light can make you a lot of money. (As with all Flickr images, clicking on the image will take you to the photographer’s Flickr page where you can leave a nice note telling them how much you like their work. Yep… do that.)
There were a ton of great images submitted. Thanks to all who participated. I am glad to challenge some of you to get outside your comfort zone and make images.
