    Taken during my 2019 workshop in Myanmar. PM for dates on the 2020 workshop, slated for later this year. We do a culturally rich workshop, connecting you with the people and the land, covering various tribes and cultures spread throughout Myanmar. Some of the nicest people you'll ever meet...and the food...amazing.

    Very cool looking Sunny! That would really be a unique culture to visit!

    You will want to add #’s to the posts to make them easier to reference. I know I lose count past about 4. :rolleyes:

    Lots of favorites in this, the standing monk towards the beginning is great. I like the contrast of old and new with the monk with the phone. And then towards the end the old monk looks great.

    I also like your processing. The subtle vignettes work great for helping to focus the eyes and isolate subjects. That would be a great lesson to anyone who takes your workshop.

    Jim,
    Thank you for the feedback. I'll add the #s in next set. Processing and feedback during the workshop is one of the things that we do during the downtime. HOpe to have you on one of my workshops soon :)

    Those are stunning shots, great work! I especially like the close-up portraits, #6-8. The lighting and detail is sublime. And they look so good with the dark background.
