One of the best things about being a photographer in these digital times is the interconnectivity. I have access to community colleges, meetup groups, web blogs, web seminars and facebook friends. We teach and share and critique and help in model portfolio bldg. The model shoots help build an eye which carries over to portrait and wedding work. Workshops with a digital camera is instant learning and almost instant sharing. I love these interesting times. A big thank you to Paul Estabrook who runs the photography dept at Sacramento City College. Another person of note is Mark Behrens of Northern California Portrait Photography Group on meetup.com and Tim Engle of Click Monkeys on meetup.com. These sources are tireless in their efforts to share with the photographic community.
