Last June, at the Quilt Surface Design Symposium in Columbus, Ohio, Dorothy Caldwell taught a five-day class titled "A Book of Marks". One afternoon, each student attached a brush to a long stick. Dipping these awkward-feeling instruments into paint, they first painted one large paper as a group, then did individual sheets. As historian for QSDS, successfully photographing a moment like this fills me with absolute glee. I am serious about documenting the event, but my ultimate goal is to capture the spirit of creative experimentation and fun that most of us associate with QSDS. Shooting people is hard for me. Unlike with flowers or buildings, I am hesitant about intruding upon people. What or who do YOU avoid photographing?
