Joyce's portraiture is captivating and I highly recommend you check out her work. Her teaching style has a purity to it that is freeing and had us focusing on creating portraits that were psychological and telling rather than just another "pretty picture". Each of us delved into our own feelings and emotions and brought them forth through our images.
When I met Sojourner she was dressed in a lovely black vintage dress. I mentioned that I also had a vintage dress in my car. Her eyes lit up and welcomed the idea and soon after we were creating a story in this old car.
Sojourner fell into the role adapting to our suggestions without pause. There is such a trust within these workshops that I truly admire. We meet briefly and within minutes started collaborating together combining our talents through the medium of photography.
I believe this story will continue for Sojourner and myself.
I picked up a journal when I returned home. Its titled "Creativity Takes Courage". For me the "courage" is merely allowing yourself to follow your heart. Knowing what is right and what is not - then making your choices accordingly.
