The Chalfonte Hotel
A few weeks ago, I asked Theresa Hood to guest blog on our site. (see The Glassblowers, April 27) As Terry discussed individuality, she asked us if we had ever gone shooting with other photographers. She said that if you had, you would see that "you can have five people standing side-by-side shooting the same subject and you will leave with five different interpretations."
Well, guess what? A few weeks later, we had just that! I'm sure you're all sick to death of hearing about Nancy Ori's Workshop in Cape May (dev.nancyoriphotography.com/workshops)
that I have attended for the past three years, but that is where Terry and I met. We also met our shooting buddy Susan Alexander (Mills) there. In subsequent years, Michele Yacavello and Bettina Bell (names you might recognize from Shutter Sisters, Prompt Addicts or Picture This) "heard" us talking about it on-line, and joined us!

Today, share your passion with somebody! Invite a friend to be your shooting buddy and make an afternoon of it. Or post some shots from a location you shared with someone in the past. (I know many of you have been to workshops.) If you have not, think about inviting someone on-line. Once I was having trouble using a texture in Prompt addicts and Ellen Morgan asked me to send it to her for her help. She textured it her way and we posted them both, and got lots of comments.
My photo buddies and I (we jokingly call ourselves "The F-Stop Gang!") have found many more opportunities for fun and learning by pooling our resources. We regularly share photos, articles, sales, classes and whatever else we can find. FOL is a community too! Let us know about anything you find that we all might enjoy. And continue to contribute to our family in our monthly themes and Flickr pool. Allow us the pleasure of getting to know you :)
TODAY- IN OUR FLICKR POOL -SHARE THE LOVE !
