Super Monday Spring 2013

Twice a year the Professional Photographers of America have Super Monday.  This is a day set aside for the education of professional and aspiring professional photographers.  I, again, volunteered to teach a class this day.

The class was Studio Lighting A-Z.  I had 5 students, and we had a great time.

One of the students was from Pleasanton, California.  And, although we didn’t personally know each other in California, we knew of each other.  She was actively involved in PPGBA (Professional Photographers of the Greater Bay Area), and I was involved with NCPP (Northern California Professional Photographers, which, by the way, split off from PPGBA back in the late 1990s.)

Lighting is one of those things that separates the men from the boys, as they say.  Anyone can take a picture using flat lighting, but dimensional lighting takes knowing what you’re doing.  And, so, that is why I decided to teach this class.

I was beat by the time I got done.  Teaching is demanding, but rewarding.
