As a photographer who recently discovered the wonders of film photography, I wanted to learn from someone who would teach it to me straight. I have done a few mentor sessions with film photographers that I respect and admire, but Jonathan Canlas was the recurring name that popped up as the go-to in the film world. He's a film guru and wrote one of the better books on film I've seen. I read Film Is Not Dead cover to cover and followed Jon Canlas' formspring feed, but still needed the hands on experience. When his LA workshop was announced, I pounced. Never has such an experience made such a huge difference in my life and business. The three days spent with Jonathan, learning, watching, listening, and experiencing all that he has to offer...well that's a once in a lifetime opportunity. This guy is the real deal. There are no egos, just support, and advice and as much information as you want to get out of him. He is literally an open book. I learned more about myself and who I want to be in the photography world in three days, than I knew about myself in the last 5 years. Thank you for helping me uncover my "why," Canlas. I have a ton of images to blog from this workshop, but for now, these two were taken at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles. Processed at the FIND Lab.
