From the beginning of this year, I have been given a clearer picture of my life. It seems to always come as you least expect it, but I had been begging God for a “defining moment”, so why should I be surprised when it arrived? Most of the time when I am really desperate to know something and seek, I want instant answers, as I am learning to sit and wait in the meantime, which is a whole other post.
I do not want to give the wrong impression to the two people who read this, my mom and my PR chick. I do not have all the answers, but somehow I have become comfortable with waiting on them.
Which brings me to “what” the clearer picture looked like of my life? I knew that I would be branching out this year in to different area of my creativity. Briskly, the idea was conceived to instruct a class. I named it “Insider Training”. I wanted it to be useful, reasonably priced, fun, inspiring and possibly enlightening. As we began promoting the first class, which was held Feb. 26, 2011, I really wanted to keep it fairly small. I seem to be extroverted in a group, but am so much more comfortable one on one with people. As the seminar drew closer, I felt nervous. As my teaching material came together, after many hours, I began to feel better. I just wanted it to be so applicable, not wasting anyone’s time or money. I guess the name of the class should have been “How to use your camera, NOT on AUTO”. Here are the students with me at the first ever “Insider Training I” and a photograph of the classroom.
I am doing another stage one class April 23rd. An Insider Training II, will happen in early summer, this will be a creative class that will cover composition and reviewing your images as you have learned to use your camera, as well as composition and lighting.
I thank the people who attended and appreciate your abilities to learn to become better at something that you love!
