    Very informative. I learned and re-learned many practical techniques and the theory behind them that I can immediately incorporate into my photography.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
