Cherry Blossom Festival – Not!

So four of us loaded up at 10 to head for the Cherry Blossom festival. We knew we were in trouble when we saw the traffic backed up on the 14th Street Bridge. Wow! There were thousands of people there and absolutely, positively no parking places. And there are no metro stops close by. So […]

Another Night At Class – Liz Is Our Volunteer!

Just checked out this slideshow and LOVED the fade out/fade in transition! Easy on the eyes and these ancient eyes need all the help they can get! Great pix! Guess the idea on the bullet hole ridden mission wall is to preserve the history, not the mission. If they don’t repoint the brick, I wonder how long before it falls down? Love ya, guy!!

Class Work

So tonight in class we added a background light. We also added added a backdrop. We each had a few minutes to get the lights right and then take a couple of shots. Not perfect but good practice. And I guess that practice is what it’s all about. This is one of my classmates, somewhere […]

I love the lighting!! You did a great job! No glare and his face looks …..well, I guess “soft” is the best word. For such a close shot, that’s amazing!
