I really didn't feel that I learned an immense amount about art, but I can say that I did learn a little. I do know how to digitize film (But thats really really not hard). I do know a little bit more on photoshop and how to print. I did learn more about my camera, and how to organize my photos.Michael Gilbert the professional photographer-being around him I learned more about artificial lighting than I had ever known. I did also learn to ALWAYS have a camera on you, because you never know what will come your way that you can capture!I learned that nothing is ever too big to ask for, when it comes to art, money , people... just ask because the worst they can say is no! I really learned to appreciate the natural beauty in every day life, which was really good when I came back to Ohio...... its NOTHING like Maui, but I can appreciate it for what it has.
I will say this- going into this whole thing, I wanted a completely new experience and I wanted to have fun. While it was a crazy ride... I totally got what I wanted!
Being out there has really changed things for me, and currently I am at the spot where I don't have any idea on what I want my next step to be!
