Capturing True Emotion

It was five years ago today that I stumbled onto something that would change my life. I took a one day photography class in Chicago called ‘Capturing True Emotion.’ The two photographers who lead the seminar had great chemistry and later were married to each other. I always think that these type of classes are kind of a cheap trick. It is a way to get money from beginners who don’t know any better. For me I think what I got out of the class was the fire to be a better photographer. Shortly after the class I bought a new camera and really started down the path that led me to where I am today. It is hard to believe that it was only five years ago. Since that class I have really put my nose to the grindstone to become a better photographer. That day opened my eyes to the fact that photography could be fun. It also could be something that I do the rest of my life.
