We've had a great few days full of useful information.  These are some of the things we have talked about in length: framing, matting, packaging, printing, artist's statements, statements of work, submitting work to contests and galleries.  We visited two photography galleries and talked with the curators.  We also visited a photography book store.  We have looked at work from numerous current photographers and talked about different genres of fine art photography.  

I ran this morning but besides that I've been eating lots of delicious, rich food and sitting in a classroom. It's surprising how tired that can make you feel.

We have had very little time to shoot and when we have it's been snowing.  So here are a few pictures below.

I'm totally enjoying myself.  Aline is such a great teacher.  My class if full of creative and talented photographers.  I miss Willie and the boys, a lot, and am so thankful for all my friends that have been helping Willie out with childcare.  We have some major thank you cards to write.  We also talked about making thank you cards with your images on it.  This may be the perfect opportunity for me to get some printed.

Here is my desk in my room.  It looks out over a flat roof.

When talking about different genres of fine art photography, we talked about typologies.  I made one of all the cameras I brought.  Learning the different genres helps gives me a lot of ideas.

I went out in the snow and took some pictures after class today. Even though we live in the desert, I'm never actually in the desert (on purpose) when it's snowing.  It was so beautiful to see the snow on all the desert plants.  This is right behind the building I'm staying in.
