Rejuvinated!

The past for weeks have been amazing. I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed my RHU intensive course on Missional Photography - it has really been a blessing in my life in so many ways! I have learned heaps in mechanics, ethics, and guts! I've also been blessed with new and deeper friendships and memories that will rest with me for a long time to come. Thank you Dane, Mike & Jessica for the hard work you put into hosting & teaching this intensive - you three ROCK!

Ok, so as a quick recap of the final class, I wanted to mention a few things. We had a wonderful guest contributor, Wendy, who came and spoke to us about poverty. Not the poverty that most of us think of, but true social, political, economic and spiritual poverty and the lies that are told and believed surrounding each of those. Here's Wendy speaking to the class.

She sparked a really interesting conversation about exactly what we take photos of and how we portray poverty. It was truly fascinating. For more information about this, visit www.povertyunlocked.com - that's Wendy's site.

Here's Dane & Jessica enjoying a random moment - I just liked Dane's expression. It reminded me of all the other smiles and laughs the class shared during the past month.

Ok, enough sentimentality... So we took one final opportunity to go through submitted photos and c&c a little bit. They took turns guessing if the submitted photos were taken by someone who knew the subject or not...

Afterwards, we all took advantage of one more time to say thanks, exchange emails, take photos and give & received hugs (and maybe eek out one more bit of advice). Here's my buddies Nate and Steve talking to Dane one more time.

Thanks again to Dane & Rock Harbor for putting this on and doing all the work to organize and present such a fab class. I feel like my photography received some much needed rejuvination! So when I seem to get lame again, feel free to kick me in the pants and remind me about this class!

That's it for tonight. Ren-Faire and wedding photos from this past weekend are coming soon! :-)
