Dancing with Yervant workshop<br>-what I learned 4

The workshop finished yesterday and I went to Athens & stayed here for 3 days, just to relax. In last few days, we had over 12 hrs of workshop everyday — going out shooting, learning photo skill, photoshop skill, critics session, discussing of business. Someone asked me what I learned … … I believe that the most important thing I learned is more understanding of my weakness, & what I am not good at.

During the critics session, every photographer submitted a few photos to Yervant to have his comment. He said my photos are good, & the brides are going to love them. However, as a professional photographer, he could point out all bad things about the photos — the light is not correct, the pose of the bride is not good. If I enter those photos into a competition, it is straight "OUT" for sure.

This is very useful, makes me step back and think how I can reach the next level of my career. The workshop is definitely the best investment as a wedding photographer.

one of my favorite shot — I like the movement of the veil

Again, I love the movement of the hair

  7. Hi Christina,
    Nice to hear that you & your families like the photos. I am sorry for the coffee book. In fact, I owe several clients the coffee for a long time as I am too busy delivering photos in last few weeks. The schedule of next few weeks is better and I hope that I can clear up all the outstanding items.
