I had the opportunity to go hang out with my friend and mentor, Chris Dickinson the last weekend in June for one of his annual Photography Workshops. To say I had been looking forward to this workshop might have been an understatement. Chris and his family are so kind, so giving and I honestly am very grateful to have them in my life!
What I learned about lighting, the review of things I already knew — but couldn’t explain worth a poop, and of course the new friends I made, was priceless. If you’re looking to expand your photography knowledge, Puh-Lease, go see Chris at his next workshop. It’ll be the best investment you could make in yourself! The friends I made are adding to my life, through their encouragement and passion. Those are the kind of people you want on your team!
I want to make sure you get the chance to follow all the people who were kind enough to let us photograph them, and as we get through the series, I’ll make sure to pass on all the names of the other workshop participants so if you’re not following them already, you can. Because you should.

Now, I know why most of you come to this site — to see pretty images, so I’ll share them, a few at a time — so you’ve a little something to look forward to!
On this particular occasion, the crew had to doctor a few calves/cows for pinkeye. Which meant they needed to be roped, and get an antibiotic shot. Darn, I guess we’ll just have to photograph them doing their job!
Chris really challenged me with my 16-35mm Wide angle lens. Being that close to the action, sure got my blood flowing!
I love the above image in color, but I also really love it in black and white. Can’t lie about that!
Until next time…
