My mentor and I set up a photography workshop at an off-campus location (Koreshan Historic State Park) to give the students a hands-on approach to photography. We had a fantastic model, great cloud coverage, and had tons of great fun! I have a few things I would do differently for the next workshop (don’t wear a sweater dress and boots thinking it will be cold -_-) and watch those fire ants! All in all I was and will always be worried that the students didn’t learn anything, but they were all fantastic and we really rocked the workshop! For mostly beginner photographers, we had a wildcard lesson thrown into the mix of the workshop: I brought in flashes. Shocker for some, but many were thrilled and excited (!). I wanted to give the students a taste of something different. Heck, I even learned something today, the students wanted to use my umbrella modifier as a prop, and it became a light modifier to the sun! Definitely made me think of my lighting in totally different ways. Very excited that my mentor invited me back again next semester for yet another fun-filled adventure with those who love photography! 2012 is starting to look like a great year for us!
Check out the photos I took at the workshop with the students, especially the umbrella prop/sun modifier – ingenious those students.
