An intense week of teaching a photo workshop in Villajoyosa, Spain, has come to an end. It was intense, but very fulfilling and great fun – I think for everybody. At least for me as the teacher the 10 participants were great to work with; they all put in a lot of energy, were willing to be pushed and taken out of their comfort zone, and came with enthusiasm and a positive spirit. And they all produced some great work during the week we spend together. My workshops aren’t exactly holidays, but the participants were willing to do the work; shooting long hours and sitting up all night editing pictures. Over the workshop they were all able to demonstrate considerable development, of course some more than others – which for me shows their dedication to the photographic process. Over the next half year or so I will present their strong body of work (along with the work by the participants of the eWorkshop I taught just before going to Villajoyosa). Today I present a handful of my own photos I was able to shoot in between teaching the workshop, but I am proud to say these photos don’t even come close to what the participants were able to produce. I look forward to present their work.
On a different note, I have been somewhat absent from the blogosphere over the last couple of weeks. In particular I have not been able to return your visits to my blog. The workshops simple took up most of my time. But I am back and will try to catch up with you over the next couple of weeks. Thanks for your patience.
