Make images while we can

Leopard by Brian ReaWe get the paper version of the New York Times and enjoy their apps for the iPhone and iPad while traveling. Among other things, my wife and I have long obsessed over the “Modern Love” column in the styles section on Sundays.

Today, the NYTimes is featuring an essay of Jenny’s in that very column. It’s a deeply personal piece that reminds us to appreciate what we have, and do what we can while we can. Whither on paper or on your device, please check it out.

Workshop Participant Work: Big Bend / Terlingua 2010

Last month’s night photogrpahy workshop in the Big Bend / Terlingua area was exceptionally fun. There was a total of 17 of us there and we did some unusual things at this workshop. We rented out all the rooms in the Terlingua ghost town so we had the whole town to ourselves for a week. We met on the front porch of the old Perry Mansion each morning to import and develop images. We met in the 120 year old church every afternoon for critique and our afternoon lectures. We drove down dirt roads at night, find went into an old mine shaft and got access to some neat areas on private property. Here is some of the participant’s work from the workshop, erectile as well as a few candid shots:

Workshop Participant Work: Mono Lake 2010

It’s one thing to showcase my own work on this site but it’s another to exhibit workshop participant’s work. I feel like I’ve seen some great work from workshop students this past year and I’d like to start sharing that work. Here is some of the participant’s work from our 2010 night photography workshop in the Eastern Sierras of California. More specifically, the images are from Olmsted Point in Yosemite, Bodie Ghost Town, and Mono Lake itself.
