I'm recently back from a Fine Art Creative Black and White Photography and Photoshop workshop in Charlotte, North Carolina with Marie Otero. The workshop was a mix of morning photo walkabouts in the city and afternoon sessions of playing in Photoshop - exploring many techniques to process our photos into dynamic black and white images. Marie was one of my first (and the best!) Photoshop teachers, and it was great to finally have a chance to meet her in person. It was also great fun to connect with old friends and meet some new ones. The workshop was mind-blowing! So many new things to learn and explore.
One of the new things for me to try was some street photography. I have always been a bit intimidated about taking photos of strangers, but it was SO much easier to do with a group of other people doing the same thing. On our Sunday morning photo walkabout we came upon this stylish guy on his motorcycle.
