Instructor Linda Bryan has been chasing light with a camera since 1980 and is still fascinated by all aspects of photography. She has worked in professional photographic labs and teaches digital and traditional darkroom classes at Lyndon State College. While digital is her work-horse, her love for analog photography ranges from pinhole to alternative processes. Linda hopes to convert her vintage camper into a traveling darkroom and photography classroom to take to schools to teach a combination of traditional and digital photography.

The photo group I attend has some self assigned projects and the last one was make a self portrait fairytale. This is my take on the subject.
