    Rick - Great tip, Joe.

    I remember a long shot that I had to get of the bride and groom. Our phones would have made a big difference in their pose had I just used them.

    Thanks for this tip using one of the tools I already have.

    Anne McGinn - Will you be having any more workshops in the LA area this year?ReplyCancel

    • March 26, 2015 - 5:30 pm

      admin - Possibly, through Samy’s Camera. We teach at Samy’s Camera LA, Pasadena, and Orange County. Check out their educational website for a list of all their upcoming workshops.ReplyCancel

      admin - I think so Anne. It depends on Samy’s schedule. We usually only do LA and Pasadena workshops at Samy’s… We’re doing more classes and workshops at our studio now… It’s a much better teaching facility. Come down to the OC! We’re not that far from LA… :-)ReplyCancel
