Stoked to be teaming up with my good friend, John Craig, for a Beginner’s photography workshop in January. January begins the 3 month stretch where most of us hibernate and think of all the things we want to do and should be doing. The problem is that we just sit there on the couch or chair in front of the computer or tv instead of moving. We wanted to kick of 2010 with a wonderful learning experience, especially for those of you that will have just received new Digital SLR’s from Santa Claus or the like!
This is a cut and paste from John’s original post:
