On August 17th 2013 I operated a reflex camera for the first time in my life. It was a borrowed one and I only gave it back reluctantly. It was Kate Noelle's fault, an exceptionally gifted photographer from California. I went to a workshop she offered that day. I did not really know what to expect but as a blogger I feel obliged to offer you pictures that are at least acceptable. Without instructions though I wouldn't have dared to touch a serious camera. Too much fancy stuff I might damage with my curiosity. Kate came right on cue. The workshop took place at my friend Gabriella's house and the setup was pretty amazing.
I loved our little welcome packages with a Moleskine notebook, some beautiful greeting cards by We Heart Paper, a discount card for Artifact Uprising and those cute little satchels by Saturday Morning Pancakes. Oh, and I also love flowers and cake which you may or may not have already realized as readers of this blog.
After so much theory that I felt my head must explode any minute we went outside into the real world of photography. First victim: Nate Hershey, better known as Superman. And now you know the truth.

Now I have to admit one thing: Most of these pictures needed some touch up in Photoshop. Well I'm a beginner and thank God I am also a graphic designer. But now to the pictures. In the top row some old friends of mine, below some new. Some of us stayed in contact after the workshop. How sweet is that?
