I held a glamorous workshop today. Or, I should say, a workshop on getting glamorous results. One student, one model and one instructor. This guy, the student, lucked out. However, I’ve decided I won’t do this in the future. (That is, I need to have a class big enough to make it worth my while. For this class, it will need at least 3 students in the future.)
At the end of the class, the student asked when I’ll be doing this workshop again. (I guess he already wants to take it again. I understand. There have been workshops I’ve attended where I could benefit from taking them a second time.)
The X-T2 was so quiet, the student commented, “Your camera is so quiet.”
I told him the sound was electronic and if I turned it off he wouldn’t hear it at all. His reply back was, “I can’t hear it now.”
Nothing like a stealth camera for candid and street work! The sound is nice feedback because it tells you the camera took a picture. On the other hand, in silent mode, others don’t know you took a picture.
I’m so used to shooting my X-T1 I forget my new X-T2 has a grip. I can hold it horizontal or vertical and keep my right hand in the standard position. Note to self: The X-T2 has a battery grip. Don’t bend your wrist like that!
Teaching Is Exhausting
Teaching is exhausting. I remember my dad commenting about that. He’d come home from school and say, “I am so exhausted.” It requires both physical and mental exertion.
