Jack and I just completed our second workshop in the Smokies in April!  This second one, which ended yesterday, was a smaller group about nine folks and it was one of the best workshops we have done in a long time!  What made it such a great workshop?  Well let’s see; great shooting conditions, perfect weather for 90% of the three and a half days, a really nice group of people who were determined to learn and worked very hard at that task!!!  We also had some very productive image reviews, some good meals together and lots of wonderful fellowship!  You can’t beat that!  Here are some samples of what we were able to capture together!

Having just done some portrait work with Joe McNally at a Eastern Kentucky coal mine, I really wanted to try my hand at some portraits, (not my forte’), and I am not a lighting guy, but in the old Missionary Baptist Church we had wonderful window light, so I used the 56mm f 1.2  lens, (shooting at f 2), to try to express my inner Joe McNally!!  I was pleased!  Hope you like them!
