It must be tough being a Golden Retriever named Chester.  He  must settle for a leather couch and only one pillow!  It is a shame how badly we treat this dog!

A group of friends are gathering for a get together and shoot in Cartersville GA at the Courtyard By Marriaott, for Old Car City and other local attactions.  We have a special low rate ($99. plus tax) under His Light Workshops.  We are planing to have great time of fellowship and shooting together.  Feel free to join us.  This is not a workhop, no charge, just the gathering of a group of Christian friends!  Email or call me for more details if  you are interested.  billfortneyphoto@gmail.com  or (606)-528-6119

 

Once again this is not a paid workshop, just a great chance to get out of the houses and enjoy shooting with great friends!

The cost to shoot in Old Car City is $30. per day,  that will be paid by each individual.  Our meeting room at the Corurtyard is $150. per day for Thursday and Friday, we will split that cost between the folks attending.

We got our first real snow last night, about 3 or 4 inches, and I had to get out and try to find a shot or two in this Covid Deprived state we are all in!!!!  Since this isn’t Colorado I had less to choose from, but found a few things I liked.  I loved the big tree in a  field with snow on the branches and as I teach my students once you shoot the first image you saw, move in and see if the details can work!  Below is my attempt!

 

 

 

Snow bent branches.

 

 

Over this winter I have a new bag set-up for grab and go!  Remember the camera you have with you is better than the one that is at home.  Grabing this little system I can cover everything from 24mm to 300mm equivilent in just four lenses and the great little X-S10, which I’m loving more everyday!  Thanks to Stacey Moore I was able to get the Domke Fujifilm edition F-803 which is perfect for this set-up!  Thanks Stacey!

 

 

 

Hope you are warm and dry and looking forward to spring and getting back out there in-the-field!
