Steve Miller Band – Fly Like An Eagle
I am so excited about the upcoming His Light Workshop that is here in Nashville next week! If you aren’t aware of what that is, do yourself a favor and take a look at what is offered by clicking here. I am blessed to call Bill Fortney one of my dearest friends, and brother in Christ. Rarely does more that a day or two go by that we don’t talk on the phone. It is something I look forward to and always a refreshing time.
Next week Bill and his team are coming to Nashville for what will be an incredible time of learning and encouragement. I can honestly tell you that the time I spent with them this Spring has revolutionized and revitalized my personal photography. (That is a pretty big statement considering I’ve been shooting for 40 years) It was during that workshop that I started taking pictures again for me, just because it’s fun! Looking, seeing then shooting. It’s how this all began for me but I got away from it. I was at a place where I would only pick up my camera if someone was paying me to photograph. That is a bad place to be if your business is photography, it just makes everything mechanical and mundane.
The picture above is from just about 1 year ago. I had just bought my first Fuji in many years, the x10. That camera started me down the path of taking pictures again, because it was small, handy and fun. I had fallen into the iPhone camera trap. I can honestly say that I have never printed a photo from my iPhone, they were just for show and tell or social networks. Because of it’s size, incredible glass and many features, I started carrying it with me. Unlike my phone, I have printed these images and they look great!
Bill, Jim, Snake and guest Rickey Skaggs will all be here sharing their love and knowledge of photography. They have asked me to help put together a class on studio lighting, so we have some awesome plans for that! There are still a few spots left and I’d love to see you there. I am stoked about another time of learning to see better and how to make better images!
