I attended Rick Hughes' Lighten Up Atlanta workshop on March 29 and 30. I live in the suburban Atlanta area, so I spent about 45 minutes getting to the locations. Saturday was spent at a midtown Atlanta hotel conference room in an educational discussion format, and Sunday was spent photographing six models at a horse farm in Cumming Georgia.

Here are two of the many images I took:

Skylar Youngblood, msmar2000 (or #364640) on Model Mayhem and MsMar2k (or #7261) on ModelCoast :

Was the price good? Yes, at $100.00 for a two-day event, I thought it well worth the cost.

Was the weather ideal for the outdoor shoot? No. It was cold (mid-fifties) and overcast. (No swimsuit shots that day!) Since it had rained recently, the horse farm was muddier than I would have liked.

Did all the models scheduled show? No. (I'm just shocked ... SHOCKED, I tell you ....) There was also a glitch with the directions to the shooting location. However, six models did show, and they were great.

However, these things notwithstanding, as a photographer shooting on location, you have to deal with the situation in which you find yourself. You improvise, you adapt, you overcome. This sort of less-than-ideal shooting situation can really test your photographic knowledge and shooting skills.

I enjoyed meeting Rick and the other photographers on Saturday and working with the models on Sunday. I am pleased with the images I brought home. I'm glad I have them to show as part of my work. So, Rick, if you have another "Lighten Up Atlanta" workshop, I will do my best to be there.

Glad you had a good time Mike, I did a couple of Rick's lighten up events and had a lot of fun. Everyone is so much more relaxed at those events and I made some good friends as well. Have to say I didnt get quite as good a deal as you did, but not many $100 events now days.
