An Inspiring Photography Workshop by Tracey Clark

Last weekend, I attended two fabulous photography workshops by Tracey Clark of the Shutter Sisters at Tea House Studio in Berkeley. The first day focused on indoor photography and day two covered outdoor photography. The biggest surprise? Tracey Clark is a hoot! She is such a funny, smart, talented down-to-earth lady. I feel so fortunate to have met her and taken her course as I've been participating in some of Tracey's classes on Big Picture Classes for the last year.

With a group of about 15 inspired and inspiring women, there was much excitement. The art studio was filled with light and an eclectic mix of items to photograph. We experimented with color, texture, angles, focus, light and more. It was fascinating to see how two people can photograph the same object yet wind up with such different images. The creativity oozed while people set up vignettes and shots before we shared them in the afternoon.

Something else happened last weekend, too. My mom turned 81 years old! Here she is just a few months ago, looking lovely as ever. I can only hope to look as good as her when I am her age. Must be those Swedish genes!

Happy birthday, Mom! I love you!

What a fun event (the photo class, that is)...
And your mom looks no where near 81, she looks at least 20 years younger and very chic and elegant.
