Thought for the day: Best Photo Present to You?
What is the best photography present you can give yourself? New high-end camera, new expensive lens?
From many professionals, I have talked with, and from my own experience, the best photographic present for many (most?) is to take a photography workshop or class in your field or interest or where you think you are weak in.
There are many teaching workshops. I’ve taken a number week-long classes at Santa Fe Workshops and recommend them, but there are lots of others. Or take a field workshop from a photographer whose work you admire.
If you are really feeling brave, take a workshop in something that you have no background in and are unsure if you even like that photographic field.
Most pros I talk to say that they try to take at least one workshop a year from a competitor just to improve their skills.
