Light Up

I spent Sunday surrounded by camera buffs, gear heads and flash enthusiast/National Geographic photographer Joe McNally; it was heavenly. This was Joe’s first extensive teaching tour in Asia, and I sat wide-eyed as he built lighting apparatuses that rivaled the Petronas Towers. Not only was it fascinating to watch his work come to life before me, but it reminded me how much I love to learn. It's never too late to discover a hobby, and the time and energy spent honing your skills is a priceless personal investment.

Court- I love watching this part of you bloom. I know you've always had a great curator's eye for photography. I think lurking behind that has been a great photographer waiting to come out.

I have always said that if I win the lottery I will become a professional student! What an amazing opportunity and perfect timing to learn some new tricks before your excursion! I can't wait to see these put to work in your photos.
