Dear BFG member,
The nymph is a fascinating subject to many photographers including myself. So, I decided to explore this further and learn more about it. A good source to find information is found here:
In this workshop we'll take advantage of the beautiful secluded ravine found in my neighbourhood of Grandview. There is also a river that runs through it. We'll be focusing on "forest nymph" in this session with Jacquelyn.
