It’s been a while since I’ve taken any classes and I’ve been feeling in a bit of a “rut” creatively.  I thought it would be good to take a photography class and get some fresh ideas and also network with other local photographers.  I was especially interested because the instructor, Barbra Kates ( is an artist.  I feel pretty competent with the technical aspects of photography (although I’m still learning new things all the time), but I really want to be pushed creatively.

The first class was a lot of fun.  We had an immediate assignment to walk around the building and try to find interesting lines and to take some photos.  I’m looking forward to the rest of the workshop which also includes a couple of field trips.

Photographers are nerds! (I'm one too)
