I think all of my classmates would agree that we were very blessed during the weekend as Ross poured out his many talents and techniques from his experience over the years to help us better understand photography, develop our own creative sense and become better photographers. Mission Accomplished!!!
Ross not only taught us how to better understand the capabilities of our cameras, lighting, etc. he also taught us about the business of photography including his own personal journey. This was pretty amazing because where else would you find a seasoned professional that would open themselves up and share so much wisdom in a very unselfish manner; "give and it shall be given unto you".
We had a great time during the weekend, a lot of fun in the class, great networking among the other photographers and I also got some encouragement from the class for my recent trip to India. We all took several photos during the class and weekend and Ross was always teaching. Teaching at the happy hour before class, during class, at dinner, after the workshop officially ended Saturday afternoon and even through email to the class as recent as a week ago.
I shot a lot over the weekend and below are some of my favorite photo's associated with the class environment. I will be making two additional posts of pictures I took of the models (Kristen, Raschelle and Krystal) Ross made available to us to put the techniques he taught us into practice. Thanks to each of you ladies for being patient with us over the weekend. It also goes without saying but I want to thank you Ross for blessing each of us during the weekend. I truly feel you met each of us where we were and helped us take an interest, hobby or business to the next level.
