Learning To See Creatively

Absolutely LOVED the photography course with Bryan Peterson - what's not to love though; the location was amazing, and Bryan is a world class photographer who shared his secrets first hand for the many amazing pictures he has taken.  He totally causes you to think outside the box, and to not be afraid of doing whatever it takes to get that creative, outside of the "norm" shot. 

We didn't have a lot of time for any actual photography, but I did manage to snap off a few shots while waiting for the seminar to begin - we arrived at 7:50 a.m. only to discover that the seminar didn't start until 8:30 - apparently they had published three different start times for the seminar, and we got the info that said 8:00 a.m. (only those who know us Graham girls will know how truly hilarious that is!)

This is my niece Olivia, (Bem's daughter) who has the dual qualities of being drop dead gorgeous and totally unaware at the same time.  So glad she decided to hang out with her aunts for the weekend.

And finally, this is a fun shot of my sister Doreen that I like to call "Dueling Cameras".  Notice the reflection of my camera in the lens of hers - I'd love to say that I planned it that way, but as with 99.9% of all my pictures, it was a total fluke that it turned out that way!

Oh my gosh I love that final pic with Ree, if I can ever get her to keep a blog of her photography that's her profile pic. I hope the one she took of you Kel turns out as well cause I know where it's going!
As always I love your shots Kel so glad you all had a great time!

Darn but that's a great new profile picture sis and for those who are confused, the previous comment looks like it came from Kel to Kel, it was me doing some work on her blog and forgot to logout when I posted my comment :-)
