I’m not going to attempt to catch up with blog entries. I’m just giving a week summary as I have too much else to do.
Hill Cumorah Pageant ended last Saturday, and we attended the last performance with some friends from Penn Yan. My friend Mark brought his camera too. I’m sure he got some great shots too.
Sunday was the 2nd “Pageant Sunday”, and again, the choir did an awesome job. As soon as church was over I was off to PPSNYS Workshop.
PPSNYS Workshop this year is well attended. I’m taking a class taught by Michael Mowbray. The workshop started out with his talking about the equipment he uses. I felt validated as he too has gone with Godox flash equipment.
As the week progressed I learned a lot about shooting outdoors in full sunlight with a speedlight. The instruction was great. My only complaints are I wish we had either a few more models, and I wish the instructor would have taken control of the group shooting time to facilitate it moving along.
We shot in the worse possible conditions (purposefully) to learn how to control the light. Here’s the instructor demonstrating…
Full sunlight is horrible for taking pictures. Mix that with trees and you get spotty lighting, but not after taking Mowbray’s class! See for yourself…
The workshop ended with a big dinner as it does every year. This year Elizabethe attended the dinner. I don’t think they change the menu from year to year, but that’s okay. It is always good.
