I can’t believe I never blogged about my first PCU! The best excuse I have is that I had NO clue!!
I recently went to listen to Hanson Fong at a class at Precision Camera. He was my first instructor at PCU 2012 and he is very entertaining but again, I had NO clue!!! Well, things made sense to me during this second class…finally! He asked me what I remembered about his first class and all I could say was that I was overwhelmed and the one thing that stuck in my mind was the triangle thing when posing, yes those were my words…”the triangle thing”. OK how embarrassing is that? During this second class, the triangle thing made sense…..look for the triangle when posing groups of people. Don’t place them all at the same height which makes the image so much more interesting.
Then there was Lindsey Adler. She made sense because she stressed that you can use what you have available (light) to create beautiful images. All I had at that time was my camera and the kit lenses so I was about ready to call it quits because I did not have all the cool lights that the other photographers had so there was no way I could create images like they did. I think my best shots were from her class.
I love PCU!
Until next time,
