No, thinking about starting one. Use facebook as my photo blog currently.
Avid photo enthusiast seeking new techniques and knowledge of how to best use equipment. Interests range from portraits to night photography, but I am looking forward to improving my photojournalism skills and the ability to take better street shots.
The Workshop was a lot of fun and well worth the money. Lunch is very affordable, and we had 2 coffee-breaks throughout the afternoon to break up shooting. Anthony was very flexible and even extended the time so we were out until 7pm... and starting at 8:15 am, that is a wonderful opportunity to take plenty of photos. Street photography is harder than it sounds and requires a lot of practice. Although its suggested to go with P mode or Av mode, I had a lot of trouble with motion blur and lighting so I decided to go Manual which was tricky. Also, I was not very good at shooting from the hip/chest/knee so that is something I have to work on. I'm confident that future workshops of this nature will help me achieve that. Be prepared for some real "Urban" exposure as Anthony takes you into the bowels of LA where the real action is.
