They say that those who can’t do, teach. It’s unfair, I know. But apparently, that’s just the way it goes in life. I’m really hoping, though, that the saying doesn’t ring true 100% of the time.
When Carlos first approached me and wanted to buy his new wife, a burgeoning photographer, a series of photography lessons with me, I was nothing short of excited. The prospect of spending hours delving into the finer, nerdier, technical details of photography with a captive audience was nothing short of thrilling! Until the reality of it all sank in. I mean, I can’t teach! Yes yes, I do have a master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction in Education (oh yes, it’s totally true…). But there’s a reason I’m not using that degree, people! TRUST me.
Julie has been a super fabulous student, and I sincerely hope my teaching skills haven’t been too disappointing. Still, I’m hoping that in my case those who can’t teach, DO. And here’s hoping that something of value will rub off on Julie as she and I play around doing what we love to do!
Today was our second lesson together, and I thought it was only appropriate that Julie have a few shots of herself. Julie’s gorgeous porcelain skin and striking red hair is music to my ears. Or to my eyes, I guess. In any case, here are a few from today!
