This workshop gave me lots of inspiration to keep taking better pictures. I definitely feel more confident than before the workshop. I loved the “Village Experience” approach to seeing Italy. It was quieter and more “real” than the crowded touristy places. My favorite experience of the week was interacting with the locals and getting a true “behind the scenes” look at Italian life. I loved this group, it wasn’t too big and quickly became well functioning, easy to talk to anybody, a safe place to learn and fail without getting too self-conscious.
