Annunciation by Julia Margaret Cameron

I don't photograph much these days, which is typical for January.  Instead I'm working on a photography class which I'll be teaching this coming Saturday.  It's a basic class, and I've called it: I Want to Take Better Pictures.  It's all about getting to know the basic functions of a camera, and how to avoid the worst pitfalls.
This picture , is taken by Julia margaret Cameron, one of my favorite photographers.  It is inspired by Perugino's Annunciation , and it's taken in 1865, in the youth of photography.  Cameron was not merely a portraitist, but a real artist, who  created beautiful, mystical and emotional photographs.
