The workshop experience was a little different this time around. Instead of strangers in a random congregation at a commercial studio or school, this was a trio of girlfriends getting together for a mini-vacation and an intimate workshop in Chicago.

Panel 4 of 4
This past month, the saying "Creativity does not happen in a vacuum" has been proven to me many times over. Opportunities for shooting, location hunting, prop shopping, and collaboration have come my way from many good friends. Each meeting has sparked so may new ideas, that I've had to go buy a new notebook to contain them all. It's purple - the color my 6th grade teacher assured me was a favorite only of insane people. Ah Mrs. Bachtel - what odd memories you have left in my brain...
I have completed my first collaborative art experience with fellow photographer, Rene Hales! The entire experience went really well. My cynical side thinks that this has to be unusual. Our only hiccup was caused by the company we used to obtain the metal that is backing our prints. They graciously corrected their error in time for us to finish by our deadline.
We spaced out the work and met regularly making what Rene pegged as "baby steps" each time we got together. Even with our deadline approaching, I never felt rushed or stressed out. There was a lot of testing involved because we both went out on a limb and tried some new things.
