Day 2 was great. We ventured back out into the city for a couple of hours and were able to utilize natural light to create some dramatic images as well as off camera flash to make our subjects pop :)

Day 3 we were able to learn more about the business side of photography. It was so awesome that we could just pick Cliff's brain as well as the brain of his studio manager, Noelle who is a beast at post-production. I learned so much, and I hope to streamline my workflow so I can do more in less time.
Going to this workshop was definitely worth it. For me, I feel like it was a game changer. I feel so much more confident about how to tackle harsh light and about how I can best utilize my flash. It's made me examine how I do business and helped me to decide what direction I want to take this business in.
I have to say I really met such great and talented photographers who continue to be a support group that I can go to and I am so very thankful for that. We all really formed a close bond and I hope that we will all be friends for many years to come!!
Hmm, what else? That's what I get for not blogging right away, I think too many things go into and out of my head that I can't retain memories for very long hahahaha!
These past few weeks in general have been great. I have been stepping out of my comfort zone and taking risks, and I'm glad that I am because I feel it has helped me to grow as a photographer, and more importantly, as a person in general. I don't know what's ahead, but I'm ready to take whatever comes my way with a fresh and positive outlook. As long as I get to continue doing what I love, I am happy. And if I have the things that matter most to me in this life (God, love, family, friends, laughter, and good pho), then I know everything is going to be just fine.
