Quote: “However, once you’ve satisfied your index finger’s first impulse, you need to step back, think, observe, and analyze. There’s almost always a better shot lurking, but to get it requires your brain to be fully functioning, not just reacting.” – Thom Hogan

Thought for the day: Before Going to a Workshop

Above I posted this article: 8 Things You Should Do Before Going to a Photography Workshop.
While a good list I think it missed a few things. Things that apply not just to photography workshops but any class in any field.

  1. Read up/view work by the instructor
  2. Buy/read books by the instructor.
  3. Check with the hosting organization on the physical requirements of the class (I went to one class where the host said it was 2 miles/100’ max per day. The instructor’s day1 plan was 12 miles and over 8000’ vertical in one day. With regret I dropped the class).
  4. After the workshop teachback what you learned to friends or members of your camera club. It will greatly help you remember what you were suppose to learn.
  5. If you want to stay in contact with anyone in the class. reach out and start a conversation.Set up times to meet. Be proactive you you will probably seldom be in contact with them again.
  6. And if you promised anyone at the workshop any pictures, be sure to deliver them in a timely manner.

About the Author:

SlickPic was created by a group of like-minded photographers and photography-enthusiasts who wanted a service that wouldn't force them to conform to a certain style or niche, but one that would allow them the freedom to use their photos to tell whatever stories they want. They wanted a service that was capable of storing, showcasing, sharing, and displaying photos in all the different ways people use photos: some are meant just for family, some are taken for friends, and some are made for the world to see.
