Sunday night, we are planning an informal shoot in downtown Springfield and coffee shop discussions with our speakers. This is always an excellent chance to pick their brains!

We are ending Sizzler ’11 with a lab tour of BRI on Monday! This is a MUST! It’s always fun to see where your beautiful imagery becomes a metal print, a gallery wrap, a book or an album!
