As the 8th Annual Photographer’s at Painter’s wraps up, it seems every participant is leaving with a smile. The event was a huge success, as some of British Columbia’s most esteemed photographers mingled with amateurs and shared their secrets. I’m sure everyone who participated is better photographer now than when they arrived. I know I am!
All the photographers were extremely friendly and more than happy to help everyone improve their skills. I even saw some of them posing patiently, acting as models so their students could practice what they had learned. The presentations covered a wide array of skills, including how to utilize light, garden photography and using a flash. There was even a presentation on how to take professional level photographs with your iPhone.
I couldn’t help joining in on a few lessons, and I was so impressed with how the photographers seemed to take time to help every participant. Everyone was smiling and having fun, including myself, and I can’t wait to try out some of the new skills I learned.
Another great part about the event was the brunch that was held both days. As usual, the kitchen out did themselves and produced a large selection of delicious goodies. I’m positive no one left hungry.
On behalf of the Painter’s Lodge staff, I’d like to thank everyone who participated in the event and helped make it such a success. We look forward to seeing you next year!
Catch you later,
