Last October I had the pleasure to teach a self-portrait workshop to 80 woman/scrapbookers at the EntreArtiste workshopweekend in Montpelier, the south of France.
In this 3 hour workshop I told them my tips and tricks, showed them examples of my own work with self-portraits, we went outside where people can practice what I just taught them. I did a mini-shoot with the one that won my mini-lotery for that day. They learned what is their good side and what is not and lots more. We went back inside were I uploaded the pics I just took and showed them my editing techniques. It went good, no great actually and I love , love , LOVE this workshop a lot because it is made for scrapbookers(I used to be one of them).
I hope to teach this workshop again next year to other scrapbookers. If you are organising such an event outside of the Netherlands and are interested in having me teaching this workshop at your event just email me at email@example.com for further details.
Karine and Céline are two girls that are very dear to me and they organise their own scrapbooking weekends in France.
I try to see them at least once a year, hopefully we can meet again next year.
Cendrine won the first mini-shoot.
While I was taking photos of her, the rest was doing this :
Everyone was really into it :)
I told them they had to find out what is their good and bad side, but some found it hard so some I helped:
Good side :)...once you know this you will always use your good side.
Magalie won on the second day
And may I ad that is was raining that day, so we couldn't go outside(well she did for a brief second)
And then there was Carine, pregnant with her second child which was pretty much a miracle. I took a few of her as well:
She delivered a healthy baby boy :)
Love teaching, love scrapbookers, love self-portraits. Hopefully again next year!
