I do not believe in violence. There’ve been too many tragedies caused by people who are mentally unstable using Guns. Something must be done to change this! It’s time for each of us to take a stand, so there are no more senseless deaths.
This was a Peaceful Protest last night, a Candlelight Vigil held for the young people who were killed in the Parkland, Florida School Shooting. Young people will be marching in Washington this month and I believe they can truly make a change. They are our future.
Springtime in Milford, PA Photography Workshop with Internationally known Photographer JoAnne Kalish. This workshop is open to photographers of all skill Levels. There are so many close by locations in the Upper Delaware with several great Waterfalls. It is the home of Grey Towers – first center for conservation. We have a 70 acre Llama Farm and Dude Ranch close by. Walking or driving around our historic town you will come across many Victorian Homes, galleries and antique shops. Perhaps you’d like to bring along your partner (or family for that matter) and stay over for the weekend. There’s plenty here to do and lots going on. I promise you’ll come back over and over. Pack a bathing suit, cowboy boots and hat and bring them along with your camera gear.
One of the locations we will visit and photograph will be Luna Parc, an environmental sculpture Park. It is the home of artist Ricky Boscorino and is an on-going work in progress. Be prepared for lots of close-ups, graphics, exciting fun, crazy and zany stuff. So much to photograph! Our Second location will be at one of the many varied waterfalls highlighting the area. The third location will be a magnificently beautiful 70 acre Llama Farm where approximately 80 Llama roam freely.
The town of Milford, PA is a wonderfully vibrant town. It was written up in Frommer’s as being one of the coolest small towns in the U.S. We hope you decide to stay for the weekend. You can find more information on the workshop here
We had a great Fall Workshop this past Sunday in the Upper Delaware. I surprised everybody by bringing in two very pretty students, we used as models. The young ladies, Delanie and Jacqueline were great. We started the workshop at the Farm and the Llamas were curious, gentle, and followed us around as we photographed them. We then went back to the barn as it was feeding time and worked with the animals a little more. In the back of the barn we found a window with some good side light. We utilized this window for our portraits using a little fill. We worked on body placement, how to get a Rembrandt patch and simple direction. I took them to another favorite spot of mine where the lighting is so soft and beautiful for additional portraiture work. We then went on to Luna Parc and worked on graphics. Students had an opportunity to meet artist Ricky Boscarino of Luna Parc along with another artist Greg Hicho as they collaborated on a new mosaic piece. We ended our workshop at one of the many local waterfalls learning how to work with the fluidity of water, nature’s colorful fall palette, in beautiful autumn light.
