Occasionally, photographers find excuses to go on vacation with each other and refer to them as “workshops” in order to rationalize the expense. After a few years of caring for small babies, I was finally able to scream, “COUNT ME IN!”

These images comprise only about 10% of my takeaway from Diana’s workshop. Truthfully, the first things to come out of my time with her aren’t even photography related. I’m just brave enough to be unapologetically myself.

I tried to stretch myself at the workshop and while I did some, I did revert to my comfortable place in some of my images (which, honestly, still makes them great…). Aww shucks, I’m just so stinking proud of myself that modesty is hard to toss out the window. The image I was most looking forward to seeing even had a light leak, folks! Film will have my heart forever. It’s been a good week.

The four families below were shot using a Pentax 645N, Pentax 67, and Canon EOS-1N on Portra 400, Ektar, and Delta 3200 and processed at theFINDlab.

And naturally, I had a few frames to use up when we headed to dinner. The photo on the right below just took my breathe away when I saw it. A power station, that’s all. But I suppose they can be beautiful too. Farewell, Nashville. You were wonderful!
