Just in general. I like a little more snap in my BW. You will notice the contrast variation in a few of your BW. They should all match. I do a quick dirty adjustment with my levels in photoshop. Typically you should bring your LD (black point on the histogram) to level of 5-8.
Loretta, I set up a special email account which only receives emails from groups I see as a priority. Those that offer workshops I really don't want to miss. When that email comes to my phone, it has a special ring and I know to act quickly. Hope this can help you for the future.
Lorretta - Welcome to the San Fran Photography Shootout! Glad to have you on board and I look forward to meeting you at a future event!
Welcome to the group. I hope to see you at one of our meetups.
Hi Loretta, there should be plenty of parking in this area and the surrounding neighborhood. The closest BART station is the Lake Merritt station which is about a mile walk away. It should be safe to walk. There will be plenty of foot traffic once you get near the lake. If you don't feel comfortable walking, I can pick you up from the station.
You are right on Loretta. I converted to BW and really pushed the contrast to emphasis the leopard makeup which was the point of interest on this shot. As well we wanted a real high key beauty shot. The color is more natural and works as well.
Thank you Lorretta! The natural light was perfect. It wasn't too bright for my shooting habit.
Hi Lorretta, It was nice to meet you today and thank you for the book referral. See you at the next meeting.

Hi Loretta the room in photo department is Building A162-185 Building A is on Fallon and 10th. I talked to parking about Saturday and they said that even though you are to have pass for student parking, the parking police do not work on Saturdays. You should be fine parking without any problems.
