:: let’s shoot! ::

** UPDATE to POST:: Photo shoot is closed as of 02-28-2009 at 8:30 pm CST.  Thank you all for participating!  I am looking forward to meeting and shooting with all of you!  Will email or FB details soon. =D

** UPDATE to POST :: I am going to limit the number of shooters to 20.  I honestly didn’t think I would get more than 10 :)  So please, if you’re wanting to shoot, please add your comment below!  Only 3 spots left!

I have been itching to shoot ever since my trip to Las Vegas for WPPI and I wanted to do something fun and surround myself with other people who also enjoy photography.  I get many random and not-so-random questions via Facebook or direct email or even mobile texts on photography =D  which I totally don’t mind, but how fun would it be if we just all go out there and shoot together?!  I don’t have the exact details as of now… I actually wanted to see how the response is going to be and then I can be better prepared for our shoot whether it be a photo safari or a shoot with models or maybe even both!  We’ll be going over some basic photography to get you more familiar with your camera and answer any questions that you may have.  It may be new to some and review to others.  The bottom line is, we’ll have fun doing it!

So all I need you to do is leave a comment on this blog entry below and indicate how many people would be coming with you.  Direct [email protected] if you have specific ideas or have a question about the shoot.  Here are the requirements:

  • Camera – please bring one!
  • Experience – newbie photogs to seasoned photogs – this is just for fun!  Come one, come all!
  • Must have fun!

My goal is to have this photo shoot in March (before my wedding season begins and hopefully we’ll have better Chicago weather – crossing fingers).    It can be 1 to 20 people, it doesn’t matter to me.  I feel so blessed to be able to do what I do and enjoy what I do.  I am still learning as well, and would love to share the knowledge that I have learned thus far…  If you’re passionate about photography and you want to improve your skills and take better pictures, the worst thing you can do is not show up… It’s FREE, and who doesn’t like free?  =D

This is a photo blog, so here’s a photo on my blog!  Shot by my husband Andy
