ShutterFest 2014 – quick recap

i would probably love to sit for a few hours trying to blog about everything that i learned from sal cincotta‘s first ever shutterfest. go into detail about the amazing team that put together this two day conference in st. louis. tell funny quips about the t-shirt gun that could easily knock someone off a chair. or the comedian that had us laughing at some photography greats. or that i got to meet some of my favorite vendors and tell them how amazing they are like bay photo and sigma and be introduced to new favorites like asuka books and sticky albums. but as my mind goes a million miles a minute digesting the amazing conference, i also know that i need to pack, like i’m leaving for a three week vacation to the netherlands. so instead of really writing, i’m going to post some pretty pictures from the journey. and really aim to get around with a more in detail blog post 🙂

– the sun rise view…


– the sun set view


– the awesome vendors view…


– my view from going outside my comfort zone for sal’s off camera flash workshop…


– and my views from exploring the arch…maybe it is possible to have too many arch photos? 🙂


-my view of the amazing photographer, kristen from bloom haven photography who joined me in this adventure


– my view of an on location shoot out happening under the arch. it was pretty amazing seeing all the shoot outs happening.


even though i’ve only been home for a few hours, it still feels like i’m dreaming.
