For the next three weeks, I’ll be immersed in two cool photography ventures. The first takes place from September 11 to 14 and is the celebration of photography known as Smoky Mountain Foto Fest 2019. I’m very excited that several of my friends are presenting there, so I’m looking forward to reconnecting with them as well as making some new ones along the way. Oh, and I’ll probably learn a lot too! I realize it starts tomorrow, but you should consider attending if you’re in the area. I believe there are openings and they accept on-site registration as well. Google it for more information. As the organizers say, it will be the most fun a photographer can have in the Southeast!
After Foto Fest, I’m immersed in my very own workshop the following two Saturdays at the University of Tennessee. You’ll notice that September 21 and 28 are conveniently non-home games on the UT football calendar. Not that there has been much football going on so far this season for us Volunteer fans. So if you want to take a break from football and do something really exciting, join me as we discuss creative processing and personally expressive image making. I know we still have room and I guarantee you’ll be a winner! If you’re interested, check out the events list on my Facebook page or Google UT non-credit education and you’ll find a catalog with more information. Or, better yet, just contact me with questions and I’ll immerse you in answers.
Finally, I’m still immersed in the processing of older images. This began with my last post a couple weeks ago about memory lane. This time, the images for today are from more recent travels ranging from 2014 to 2017. The locations include Death Valley, White Pocket, Zion National Park, and Olympic National Parks. I’m sure you can tell which is which. 🙂 The image of the coastline is especially meaningful to me. The location is called Second Beach. I’ll concede that this is a relatively mediocre image from Second Beach. Google it and you’ll see what I mean. Regardless of the image, I just love Second Beach. I’ve been there several times and it never disappoints. The ocean, the tides, the rock stacks, the salt spray, and the setting sun are amazing. Such a photogenic location. Enjoy!
