Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of participating in a photography workshop in Tuscany, with the wonderful Nadia Meli as tutor and speaker. As the life-long learner that I am, and always will be, I deeply enjoy picking up and fostering new skills, personally, and professionally. This workshop experience was a revelation to me, not only as it gave me the chance to enhance my craft as a photographer and artist but it also touched me on a much deeper, personal level.
Let me just put it this way, often it is the human connections that leave the biggest impression in our hearts, and our souls. Meeting Nadia and the other fellow photographers, being able to connect and share our dreams and experiences just sparked some amazing ideas and actions within our small group. Memories I do cherish to this very day.
On the second day of the workshop, we all went out to practice and learn from each other. The location, Borgo Pignano, couldn’t have been more beautiful, a stunning borgo nestled between the soft, rolling hills of Tuscany, which literally is the land of all my dreams.
I will leave you to enjoy the pictures of a beautiful couple in a breathtaking location, dressed in stunning bridal fashion, and garnished with the most beautiful, opulent bouquet, arranged by Susanne of The Blue Carrot.
