    I loved the interview with he said/she said. I love how they both come from completely different backgrounds and interests, and end up with the same passion. My favorite part was when Jean was talking about starting a business and how you know when you are ready. That was very inspirational to me, because it made me feel even more confident that I am ready. At the end of their article, I was wishing it was longer…so that’s why I would love to get a seat at that workshop. It would be amazing!

    The most interesting thing I learned is that Travis has done what I have thought about many times; quit the corporate life to pursue his passion for photography. The realist in me says, “no way you’re crazy”, while the dreamer in me says, “why not?”. There is so much I have to learn before I could consider making photography a full-time career. This workshop would be an excellent opportunity to develop my skills and give me confidence to determine if I should keep photography as a hobby or take it to the next level.

    Loved reading the blog post interview with Jean and Travis Smith ~ He Said/She Said!
    The parts that struck me the most were Travis’ decision to follow his passion and Jean’s support to let him do it. I’m still afraid to let go and take such a chance. I also have 4 boys, who are now young men, and I am still looking for balance between work and family.
    I would happily travel from Massachusetts to Detroit for a weekend of learning about photography. It sounds like it is going to be full of wonderful information and will be balanced by having the perspectives of both Travis and Jean. This could be the push I need to try marketing some of my photographs!

    AH – this is the workshop for me. I too left the corporate world just a few years ago (to care for our children & MI economy wasn’t on my side) and recently created my own photography business. I think their experience would benefit me greatly PLUS I really like that they will be focusing on one lighting tech. to help enhance images. I’ve been focusing on newborn/baby and senior portrait work so both Jean & Travis have a speciality that I can incorporate into my offerings. I can not afford to attend this workshop on my own so winning would be WONDERFUL. I will soon be sending additional entries via social media links. Oh – I’ve been a MCP FB fan for awhile.

    I loved that Travis quit his job to pursue his passion. I did that almost 11 years ago with no regrets (well, almost… I was laid off and started my own design biz). Now that I’ve got tons of great equipment and have been practicing like crazy, I want to add pro photography services to even more of my clients. This workshop would be wonderful!!

    I don’t have a business because I want to be better before I start one. This workshop would be PERFECT for me. I want to explore my style, natural light, or artificial, or both. Oh man I want to win. PICK ME!

    What did I love? I loved the idea of creating your own sun with OFC. I need to learn this for seniors…… really, really need to learn this. I’d love to win a seat in your workshop! I also love that you have 4 boys….. wow! I have 3 boys + 1 spit-fire little girl and there are days…..let me tell you. 😉 Anyhow, I’d love to kick up my photography a notch or two, and I think your workshop would be the answer!

    This would be an amazing workshop to attend. Jean did a session with a friend of mine and I’ve been following her work ever since in awe. The part that hit me is that it’s ok to say no and in fact, should say no more often. A huge benefit of the workshop for me would be to gain more confidence so I know I would be giving each client that amazing portfolio Jean was talking about. It’s about improving your skills and never thinking you’ve arrived but keeping the passion at the same time. This would be great!

  18. July 27, 2011 at 10:43 am —

    Besides the bit about letting your husband pursue his dreams (I’m trying, I’m really trying!) I loved this little tip: “A fun little trick is to turn your 50 mm lens into an instant and super sharp macro lens by taking it off the camera, turning it around, and manual focusing.” Gonna try that today!
