I just wanted to comment on the value of belonging to a state affiliate as well as PPA. Our state PPSNYS has Photo Imaging Workshop at Hobart-William Smith College in Geneva, NY. It's a 5 day workshop that will change you forever. After spending 5 days with the whirlwind from Georgia known as Louis Tonsmeire, I know every image that will come from my camera from now on will have a little bit of Louis in it. I just hope that I can stop speaking with a southern drawl. I live 90 miles south of Buffalo, NY, so it just seems out of place :D If anyone has the opportunity to see and hear Louis in the future, JUST DO IT. He is an amazing teacher and a friend. I feel very lucky to know him as both.
