Wow! Yesterday was a long day. We started at 9:30 a.m. and wrapped shooting at 9:00 p. m. - almost a 12 hour day, but it was well worth it as we shot some really great images. We started things off at Ault Park, one of the most popular parks to shoot wedding images on a Saturday. I've seen up to five wedding parties there on a weekend. There is just so much variety and so many cool features to we can use in our compositions. The class had a great time shooting on there own again and we plan on reviewing those images this morning.
We spent the afternoon , actually till six in the evening, taking "geek" talk - that means we were on our computers all afternoon. I know many class attendees were impressed and amazed with what they saw though. We took about a 30 minute late afternoon break and then headed to Drees Pavilion. It's another amazing location and about the prettiest place in the city for wedding pictures.
The high vantage point of this location looks out majestically over the Ohio River valley for one of the best views of the city. Next week I'll do a recap of all this week's images so you get an idea what I mean - pretty cool stuff. Today, it's on with marketing and sales, kind of a fun section of the week for me since I'm such a sales nut anyway.
We wrap a lot earlier today, 5:30p.m., because it's back to our home this evening for a gourmet dinner, questions and answers and a little more R&R. I think we have many about running on empty (heck, me included) so it will good to recharge the batteries at the end of the day.
So there you have it - the week is going great. It's an amazing group of photographers. The class is enjoying the learning process a bunch, and we are getting some really good images, too.
