Would You Like To Wade In?

Hey gang, Vivienne McMaster who taught that wonderful online self portrait class I just took, Wading In is giving away a spot in her class!

I HIGHLY recommend her class. I learned so much! It's not about the techie stuff-it's about learning to see yourself in a different light and to open yourself up to the possibility that you can express yourself through photos. You do not need fancy equipment-I worked with a half-dead crappy SONY point and shoot and managed to get some incredible shots to work with. (One of them appears in the brand new header on my blog, another is the icon of me on my sidebar.) You also do not need to be some sort of expert photographer. All you need is to have an open mind and the willingness to explore the possibilities. I promise you, you will surprise yourself.

If you want to see more images I created in class, just visit my Flickr (the link's right there on the sidebar) and click on the Wading In set.

So what are you waiting for? Go enter! Click here.

For added inspiration, Vivienne is also featuring interviews with past participants of Wading In and You Are Your Own Muse. You can read the first one she's posted here. She starts with an introduction and then at the bottom you will see the names, which you click on to read that person's interview. Names will be added as more interviews are posted. I'd bookmark it if I were you-there's going to be lots of wonderful sharing happening there!
