Hi There!
There were some fascinating things happening in the photo world last month….
Last call for the hands-on workshop that Bill Durrence and I are doing at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens June 1 & 2. Please contact me ASAP to reserve a spot. http://michaeltraining.com/workshops/abg2013/
Normally the Gardens is a great place to be, but for the next few months it should be really special with a fascinating topiary sculpture exhibit called Imaginary Worlds. http://www.atlantabotanicalgarden.org/events-classes/events/imaginary-worlds
