Having never taken a photography class in my life, I jumped at the chance to attend Brooke Holm's workshop as part of Megan Morton's 'The School' Melbourne roadshow in May. It was held at Small Giants' head office at St Kilda, which was just a beautiful old colonial style building with timber floored rooms and windows of light you could literally spend all your time looking out of.

These are some of the shots I took that were the result of the awesome interior styling genius that is Megan Morton. I'm a little bit tempted to take one of her styling classes next time and also become a hoarder of amazing interior things.

I brought my old 40D, which I hadn't used in a long time, along for this class and I have to say, I really reconnected with the concept of using a DSLR. The class was quite good, Brooke was incredibly generous with her knowledge and although the class size was a little too big for one on one time with her, I gained invaluable knowledge on framing, post editing and developing my own style. All of which I now apply to every single photo I take, iphone included.
