Pin-Ups, Planes and Classy Dames…Little Red Schoolhouse

Dallas Professional Photographers hosts’ a workshop every August
in some interesting location and this year it was Fredericksburg!
From WWII airplanes, to antique autos and fabulous models and
wardrobe, with 3 great speakers to boot, everyone had a great
time learning and getting hands on experience shooting photos
of our models and around town in Fredericksburg, Tx.

My winning Photo

Jane Aldridge
After following world traveler Jane’s blog, SeaofShoes.com for several years, I thought it would be fun to ask her if she would like to sit for a portrait! All vintage and fun, her shoes, some of my clothes, backdrop and props, her belts and more, my friend Deborah and I had a blast shooting Jane! I was so pleased to win 1st place in portraits last week at the Dallas Professional Photographers meeting with my photo of Jane! check out her blog and see where she is headed next…

Texas School … simply amazing

Texas School is over, but not the memories!
At the closing seminar this morning after receiving lots of door
prizes by many in the audience, Arthur Rainville, gave a story about
never giving up! He played a tear jerker video, and not a dry eye was
in the house! He ended his story with the advice to “Simply Amaze”,
and since we are all so passionate about our craft, I think it was a
great end to a wonderful week!

How Lucky can one Girl Be? Pretty lucky I’d say…


Attending the Dallas PPA (professional photographers of america) meeting
that I attend each month, we have lot’s of vendors who give free gifts for
our door prizes! For example, $50.00 printing free from Pounds, Full Color, BWC or WHCC…
and free frames, a gift certificate to an album company, etc. Well, tonight with
Skip Cohen as our guest speaker, we had a few extra really nice giveaways!
They were giving a 500.00 (apx.) scholarship to Texas School which is the first
week of May. Luckily, this year it is right here in Dallas, at the Intercontinental
hotel in Addison!
They drew one number but the gal whose number it was, had already paid for
her place at the workshop. So, they drew another number and can you believe,
it was 735 my number! how lucky is that… guess God was on my side tonight!
So, this semester I have been taking Painter at Collin College and that is one
of the classes at Texas School that still had a few openings. So, decided to sign
up for that to get some more hands on experience painting photographs! what a
blessing this is, Thank you Texas School and Arlington Camera for such a nice
donation and gift to me! Above, is a quick rendition of Evelyn, using a little oil pastel
with a very light touch, just enough to look a little like a painting or pastel!
