Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset. - Saint Francis de Sales

This was taken when the light was getting harsh. She was standing by a dark bush, I waited for just the right time, underexposed and turned on cloudy, to give it a golden look. I love to find situations like this where I can manipulate my settings, by manipulating the light and still make a good image. This is the type lighting challenges we work with during the spirit-N-Light workshop

Spirit-n-light, my favorite workshop to teach. It is when I studied light from journalist and fashion photographers that my photography greatly improved. Learning light when working with people who then pushed me to seek dramatic light working with wildlife, which took it to a whole new level. Everyone has such a great time up at the V6ranch and I always have a few repeating participants. Think about joining Laurie Rubin and I at the Sprit-N-Light workshop this fall http://www.pipermackayphotography.com/spirit-n-light-intensive-2015/

If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.
