Did you know that the fabulous Gale Zucker will be at TVK on February 2nd?? I am so excited and have been wanting to take one of her workshops for years. People lucky enough to take them are thrilled and inspired by how much they have learned.
Somehow my calendar has never worked out and I have a few apps on my smarter-than-me phone that allow me to fool myself into thinking that I take a good picture. But really. I also have some frozen dinners in my freezer but that don’t make me no damn chef !
So, Gale is coming, I am psyched and have gone as far as borrowing my daughter’s fancy camera. Let’s hope I go even further and acquaint myself with some of the settings before Gale gets here!
here are the workshop details:
