I am in Bloomington and I would love to be a part of the guild. Finding a time in the spring to go over photographs and the camera together in the spring would also be fantastic. It would help me a lot.
I am not sure where I will be next fall but if I am still in the area I would love to help out in any way you need (and attend of course) any lectures workshops or symposiums. I can't get enough of that stuff.
I am great. Sorry I never replied to your email...it has been eating at me. At the time I just wasn't in a very good place. I had decided that getting an MFA right after undergrad wasn't the best idea for me. The town wasn't a good match for me personality wise and though I LOVED all the studio time I was just coasting on the academic part and I didn't really want to do my MFA that way. So I was a bit embarrassed about backpedaling like that. I am trying to start my own jewelery business now for a while and we will see how I feel about getting a degree later. I do miss the studio time though, my 9-5 job puts a crimp in things.
If you have any tips for me that would be great-you know...like how you are taking your photos...I am having a horrible time with getting professional quality images.
