My yearly volunteering brought me to Kanab Utah. The Best Friends Animal Society is a wonderful place to lend a hand and I certainly fell in love with all the wonderful cats that I took care of during my time there. You can read my story about my time there in this link. My latest photo book "So Much Love" was conceived during my volunteering there and can be purchased here.
While at home I have enjoyed teaching photography through a variety of photo workshops. I have enjoyed meeting new photographers and sharing my knowledge. However, I find it most satisfying when I get the feedback that my participants have learned new techniques and insights, and tell me that they will incorporate these new skills into their photography practice. Thank you all!!
As 2014 approaches, pl check out my new photo workshops listings here.
My personal focus in my photography practice has been on night photography. I took several astro landscape photography workshops with terrific teachers - Brad Goldpaint, Steven Christenson and Jon Fuller - and have gained confidence to capture the night sky and the milky way - this is truly my new nightlife. Two recent blog entries showed more of my night photography: City Lights and Mare Island Naval Shipyard at night.
I hope your year was successful in all your endeavors!
For now, I am wishing you a Happy Holiday Season and all the best for the coming New Year!
Stay healthy and be well! I hope to see you all sometimes during 2014!
Til then, Meggi
