Saturday Workshop

Briana in alley, Globe, AZ

I attended another one of Don Giannatti's workshops this past weekend. I enjoy taking classes with Don because he is an experience photographer who is well versed in the traditional background of photography but with a great understanding of the new digital tools that are available. He also has really helped me understand the different types and ways to use light - which is really all photography is about. And the most important thing is he keeps the workshops fun.

For this workshop we traveled up through Superior, Miami and then finally to Globe, Arizona. The shots shown here were taken in Globe and we used off camera Speedlite strobes to create the effect of late day lighting even though it was early afternoon. Don goes through a complete review of the day at his site (I even star in a few of the short instructional videos that he shot). I won't try to repeat it the review here, just suffice to say that no matter what you have as a hobby going to a workshop now and again can really help the learning curve and accelerate your enjoyment of the activity. I'll try to post a few more of the photos over at my Flickr account sometime later.

I love the shot in the white dress. It is calm and serene yet sexy.
