August of 2009, I attended the Santa Fe Workshops in Santa Fe NM. I had a great time! The class was heartfelt and full of energy and emotion. It was a photography class with Master Photographer Joe Buissink, who enjoys what he does. What made it so wonderful was the class was hands on and Joe guided us rather than instructed us. After each shoot, we held a class critique the next day and oooh, awed, and boo'd what the student presented to be our best shots. At the end of the workshop, we had a dinner with the entire school and a slideshow was presented with our greatest and most meaningful shots. It was touching to see our own work on the screen as well as see the work of others. I left with tears of joy and emotion and am looking forward to returning.
