Well it was a damn good time. I only missed the first and the last classes/lectures. Every presentation I attended was great fun to see and/or very informative. I have seen thousands of photos this weekend and I think every single one was better than anything I have ever done. Attending this was definitely humbling but also gave me so much to work on and aspire to. The featured speaker was Joe McNally, a photographer for Time, Life, National Geographic, etc. He was great. It is awesome to see the person behind so many images I have marveled over over the years (like in National Geographic covers). I loved hearing the back story behind all the amazing photos he had taken.
Other than the classes, I took more photos than I have in weeks. I took all sorts of stuff from people to architecture, models to ducks, and flowers to sunsets. It was a good weekend for photos I guess. I will definitely have a lot to post after I make it through everything in the next couple days.
To anyone who lives in New England or in driving distance, this conference is a ridiculous bargain. I missed 2 classes and figured out that it ended up being less than $10 for the ones I went to. Please tell me where you can attend lectures or classes for cheaper than that.
The only bad thing that happened was that I was planning to attend the very last concert that the band Dispatch will ever play. It was going to be amazing - going to a giant concert with a bunch of people in NYC at Madison Square garden. I ended up missing my train in Albany due to ridiculous traffic. Then basically everything else went wrong as well so I never got to the city. I spent $100-200 and about 8 hours driving for one of the most frustrating days I have ever had.....what a great way to spend my money.
Take it easy,
