CONTINUAL LEARNING: A Daytripper Photo Event

So last year I was in my favourite Henry's store in Newmarket, spending money on camera equipment (of course), and I met Bryan. He organizes photo events where people can learn more about various aspects of photography. It's a great way to practice techniques with models who actually don't mind sitting/standing for a long while since that's what they're there for! :)

Last week he held another session. This one was about studio portrait type photography as well as macro. We got to play with some lighting equipment, try out some lenses. I got to take a few shots with the camera I'm saving my pennies for (Nikon D700). It definitely felt nice to hold!!

I didn't get any model releases for the people shots I took, so I can't post any here. I was more interested in just practicing some shots, etc. I did take a few flower shots. Here's one of them, just for fun.

The next Daytripper venue is Algonquin park in April. I can't wait!!

Sounds like a fun workshop. The moose may not be prime until late April this year as there is quite a bit of snow in the woods there still.
