One of the best things about photography is it gets you out of the house. Students, teachers and friends come out to show their support and a share a celebratory drink at these end-of-class photo receptions. For us, It's pretty special to see people make such huge leaps, often from little to no practical experience with photography or cameras. We live in a time when many of our images arrive electronically, and so it's becoming unusual to see photographs printed and hung on a wall, especially our own. So we get a lot out of these student shows, and it's awesome to see all the friendly faces and great work!
