    Darryl, will bring the 24-70, thanks, I don't like twiddling with settings on the cam and speedlight on location, maybe you could tell me how to set these in advance for this class so I can pay more attention to what is actually going on IN the class, don't want to be sifting thru 400 menus when I could be taking notes, Nikon D700, ISO 200 baseline and mostly I shoot App priority. . .

      Well this is the basic class and we work with natural light, so we won't be using the speedlights. But I'll be happy to help with any settings. That is what this is for.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
