Saturday I hosted and taught the.ONE DAY.workshop
To say that from 9am to 5pm was a total blast would be a total understatement.
Teaching is “right up my alley” as they say. I love people…I love seeing someone learn something, the light bulb go off and they walk away having knowledge and the “know how” to do something that never made sense to them before. It’s why I do what I do…I love it.
As they walked in and we met… they got their goodie bag…with well– some goodies! That’s pretty simple! Thanks to mpix for sending me some coupons for the attendees along with…epiphanie bags…and swanky stitch for sending me their company information to share…then I topped it off with my favorite dark chocolate with cherries….makes my mouth water just thinking about it!!!! As they wrote their name on their name tag and found their seat….
We started off the morning by a quick introduction to everyone and having a door prize for the one that came the farthest! Then I made the big announcement that no one…no one…would be in automatic mode this whole day they were with me…they kind of freaked out on me…So then we went straight into shooting manual and how to take control…at first everyone was looking at me like I was an idiot and how in the world would they ever get this “shooting manual” thing. Then as the session continued I started seeing smiles and happiness and happy images! So we had a hands on practice shooting manually inside–they all conquered it! Now they just have to keep practicing like crazy…so it becomes second nature.
We indulged in a yummy lunch then right onto our next sessions…we ended the day with a live model shoot outside. Shooting manual inside versus outside is two totally different ball games. I’m super stoked by their images they are posting on their facebook pages and the feedback I am getting. I love love love it.
I took as many pictures as I could in between sessions and teaching. Part of the fun was planning the decorations and yummy food! A huge thank you to my sister, mom and one of my best friends for letting me hire them to cook, decorate and bake. You made my life much easier and made this workshop a success!!
