I had a friend help me set up my website. I have forgotten how to change photos on my website. Pretty dumn huh. Well I have a nice pic I want to post for all of you to see. There is already one thing I would have done differently had I reshoot it. Lower the lights to catch the eyes better. But thats one of the reasons for workshops. To learn. And I was going to link it to here for you to see from my site. It was my first scan from the workshop. Many more to come, and many are probably better. The model goes by the name of X.
In my opinion workshops are to get new ideas, new information.
Networking. No matter how big or small the group is. You will meet new models and photographers.
Create friends. Its always good to shoot the stuff.
See different equipment, hopefully the moderators should have variety.
At this workshop it was my first full nude shoot. I think it went well. The artistic black and white negatives look great.
Create business friends. You might be presented with a project that you are not comfortable shooting, but someone else will jump for it. Example Rolando might not be comfortable shooting in haunted houses. I live for it. In fact in October in Newton, Iowa former home of Maytag Appliances Mfg. is a former mental institution that will be turned into a commercial haunted house. I can't wait to get my film burning through that.
