There are some things in life, that when presented in huge quantities, we’d likely let out a simultaneous “Ugh, too much!!” Let’s look at a few examples, shall we?
-Getting in an elevator with a person who showered in perfume/cologne….Where’s a clothes pin when you need one?
-When someone squirts sunscreen on you as a favour and you wind up looking like a geisha….How do you say “too much” in Japanese?
-Or how about the day you made rice for the first time and didn’t realize cooking the whole bag makes a lot of freakin’ rice? *lol*
Well, when it comes to learning, I’d say there is never “too much”. In fact, when it is about something you are super interested in and enjoy, it not only makes you better at it but you have FUN while you’re learning.
Today, I am SO excited to share that I was accepted into the Magnum Workshop in Toronto!! Some of you might be wondering what “Magnum” is all about. Well, this is the cool part, Magnum Photos is a photographic cooperative. Basically, the photographers that are members of Magnum Photos, own and run it. With offices around the world, this cooperative has grown substantially since 1947 when Henri Cartier Bresson, Robert Capa, David Seymour, George Rodger and William Vandivert founded it. What drew me to it is that Magnum Photos’ concentration is on photojournalism…and it doesn’t hurt that its founders are AMAZING!! *wink*
I’ve “officially” been a photographer for almost 9 years now, and while I put my heart, soul and everything I have into it, I think there is always room to improve, learn and grow. You can never have “too much” of expanding the skills and talents that are waiting to be fine tuned.
I am very excited about doing this workshop and can’t wait to show you all what I come up with in that week and also how it will translate to my wedding work.
Stay Tuned *wink*
