This workshop was a delightful experience. I enjoyed being in the company of wonderful people in a splendid setting. We were free to shoot at our own pace and our level of experience without constraint. The critique sessions were very helpful and constructive. With Drake and Randy I understood the true essence of photography: creative imagination and passion combined with the sense of observation. In reality, you are constantly competing against yourself like a true artist or a passionate golfer. Photography is indeed a wonderful art of expressing yourself with light and lenses.
Shooting photos in the wonderful villages of beautiful Tuscany was most inspiring. We were witnesses to the real Italian life surrounded by centuries of art and history under the warm Tuscan sun. My favorite and most unforgettable experience was my visit to the Abbey of Sant ‘Antimo near Montalcino. The spiritual impact of this romanesque place of worship is immense in its beauty and simplicity.
The workshop was well balanced and organized. I felt comfortable and welcome.
