I have been laughing so hard reading your comments from yesterday on Noodling. 107 comments on noodling…that alone makes me laugh!
Last weekend I had my third SnapShop of the year…one more to go (this weekend). For those newer to the blog, I teach very basic photography workshops “SnapShops”. This is my third year to teach them. You can find out more how they began and what I teach on my SnapShop page. It does need some updating. I am no longer doing a newsletter or any type of waiting list. The last SnapShop for 2011 is booked and if I do more in in 2012 those dates will be announced at a much later date. I am aiming at releasing an online version in August…trying to write an online class with 4 little ones is HARD!
A break for lunch and then diving into how to shoot on Manual (aperture, shutter speed & ISO) and other technical stuff…then an outdoor practice session. Our friends’ kids were the gorgeous & handsome models. If they look familiar three of them modeled for a SnapShop in 2o1o and their oldest daughter I’ve somehow conned into modeling several times! I shot all of these with my 24-70 f/2.8 lens. It isn’t my personal favorite, but when trying to teach 10 ladies it is easier to keep one lens on my camera instead of changing out lenses.
1/320, f/3.5, ISO 200…….1/250, f/3.5, ISO 200….. both edited with the Totally Rad Action “Pool Party” at about 50%
