Contacts, communication, giving and taking, meeting new folks, maybe finding people to collaborate with on projects and shoots.
http://flickr.com/photos/michaelbeaton/ Michael Beaton I have picked up the camera after a 20yr hiatus. Getting back into it. The more I do the more doing photojournalism and travel photography is what I would like to do as a career.
Photojournalism. Natural Light. Close in portraits. B/W. Also theme shoots. Like one I did last week at a wooden boat school. Loved the old tools and sail making, and trying to capture the faces and hands doing work.
Love? Probably the opportunity to meet other photographers, if only thru their work. Hate? Seems that some of the organizational functions are lacking. But, then, I havent used it that much.
Digital. Used to shoot 4x5 in school, and then had a Mamiya7. And someday I hope to add them back into my rotation. For now Nikon 200. Lusting for a D3.
Hello, looking to learn and share with the group. I especially enjoy photojournalism and portrait shots. I need to work out more in a studio and figure out how to use these cool strobes I got!
Chuck is very generous with his time and experience. It was a very good experience all around.
