I had the incredible opportunity to attend a Jeff Newsom workshop in Baltimore yesterday. Jeff is the MacGyver of light and is always trying to create a new photo that he hasn't seen before.

As an added bonus, I got to finally meet two of the nicest people in the world, Sam and Nessa, who ended up being the "models" for the day.

It was awesome, and I got to make a bunch of new photo friends. The day left me inspired, affirmed many things I was already doing, and gave me some new tricks to try out. Jeff's message for the day, make better art, the rest will take care of itself.
