    My publicity-shy wife, who was very hesitant when I wanted to share the story of her getting her private pilot's license last month, was totally caught off guard when the largest pilot's association (The AOPA) saw her story on my blog, and contacted her to see if she would be willing to let them do a story on her for AOPA Pilot magazine. Of course, I really wanted her to do it, so I kind of nudged her along, until she said "OK." (Luckily, she loves being an AOPA member, so it wasn't a very hard sell). But when you're hesitant to be out there like that, of course you know what happens right? That's right---it winds up running on their Web site right on the home page! (as seen above). Although she's not quite sure how to handle all the attention, I think…

    My name is Chris Orwig and I am a photographer and a teacher. While this post is about photography, my goal is not to help you take better pictures but to help you become more creative and alive. I hope to stir things up a bit with a few simple ideas, some pictures and quotes. Here’s to breaking out of our routines and to starting something new!

    WHO WE ARE
    Photographers are an interesting bunch. We are different and diverse yet bound by a common desire to capture and captivate. The best photographers are those who have discovered the key to a full and vibrant life. It is the insight that comes from making photographs. For by doing this we discover that life’s small mysteries and moments can be magnified. Somehow we get more out of life with a camera in hand. When we take pictures, we see more clearly, we remember more deeply, and we live more fully.

    WHO WE AREN’T
    I like things that are hand made—my young daughters’ drawings, pencil-written notes, and the old driftwood gate in our backyard. There is something special about those things that cannot be mass-produced. This interest is one of the reasons I make pictures. As photographers, we aren’t technicians who repeatedly follow the same steps. We create our own path. We are driven to create something that is one of a kind. We want to expresses our unique voice and vision. It is something we have to do. Taking pictures satisfies an internal thirst. It is an essential part of who we are.

    After teaching more than 2,100 photographers in four cities, it's time to take the show to the Big Apple, as my "Light It, Shoot It, Retouch It Tour" comes to New York City for its only New York stop this year (the shot above is from my Chicago tour stop last week. All photos by Jeff Leimbach). Here are the details: When: Thursday, June 2nd Where: The Javits Center Registration: $99 for the full day, including detailed step-by-step workbook. >> Only $79 for NAPP members Reserve Your Seat: Right Here.

You're invited to join Matt and me for this free online webinar (a Web-seminar if you will), where I'll be sharing some of my favorite techniques from the book, and I'll be taking your questions about the book, and portrait retouching in general, live on the air.
