Last week I had said I’d write more about the Penny De Los Santos workshop on creativeLIVE, and it’s taken me a while but here it is. I’ve been waiting for all the stuff in my head to finish rolling around and finally settle so I could then organize it into something that would make sense…
- I was inspired… Her love for photography is contagious and refreshing. I get so tired of meeting portrait photographers who see it as a job or chore and they seem to forget why they originally got into photography. From the first session Penny’s enthusiasm was undeniable. If I had gotten nothing else out of it, just seeing someone who enjoys what they do so much was worth it. It made me remember why I LOVE TAKING PICTURES.
- I was inspired… Natural light only. YES! HOORAY!! I love natural light, I think it’s the only way to go. Everyone/thing looks better in natural light. So often there’s this assumption that if you’re a “natural light photographer” you just don’t know how to use flash… But thanks Penny for showing the world it’s possible to go without flash.
- I was inspired… To do what I love. To remember why I love it. To push myself to be better, and never settle. To believe in myself.
I’m never going to be a food photographer, as much as I love food and taking pictures of it. But I’m so glad I took the time to watch this workshop. I learned some things, and was encouraged more than I ever expected to be. Thanks to Penny and all the creativeLIVE crew that made it happen.
Tomorrow is the beginning of the FREE Food Photography with Penny De Los Santos and I’m so looking forward to it! After all I like to take pictures, and I love to eat so this sounds great to me. I’ve always wondered if I spent more time taking pictures if I would spend less time eating…
I hope to post some updates on Twitter and maybe some pictures next week!
