    I enjoyed it. Learned quite a bit about posing. I would have liked it to go longer, but then I'm sure the models would get a little bored. It was great to give a quick rundown of swing dancing. Haven’t done that in ages.

    I would have liked, in addition to posing tips, tips on how to set shutter/aperture/iso. I tried all sorts of things, and my histogram showed very high and low extremes. I had one with a good histogram, but really out of focus. Just a quick starting point, where the instructor could say “Try using Aperture Priority, 25mm lens, f4, ISO 1600.” I don’t know what the ideal settings would be, but a couple different combinations would have been nice to know. I felt like I was going in blind. I did have fun though!

      I'm sure there will be more opportunities for workshops on the technical aspects of using your camera. Generally speaking, and use it very loosely, when I shoot with studio lighting, I typically shoot (set the lights) at f/8 to f/5.6. my ISO is normally 100 or 200. Shutter speed is set to 1/160th or 1/200th. If you are shooting for ambient light, then just set your camera's settings to how you want the exposure and DOF your are looking for. You are the artist.

    Driving home from the studio on 94 West, I'm always amazed by the cityscape of Minneapolis coming up to the tunnel, and especially the Basilica. Does anyone know a good place to get night shots of these places?

    Once again an invaluable workshop by TCPG with Cary teaching us the basics of posing and how to expand upon it. He gave us a great foundation to build from. I like how it was encouraged to not use your camera so I could focus on one aspect (posing). Took the pressure off of worrying about my camera and settings.

    When I signed up I was not directed to use PayPal. I guess I'll just bring a check.

      Thanks Lee - we should be good on models. I want to do as much as we can in a group so we can help each other out.

    I have worked with many different types of photography but have never worked with a model or in studio. So I look forward to this as a great opportunity to learn and improve a new skillset.
