We’ve had a lot of interest in more workshops, including an intermediate one – so we’re pleased to announce that we’ll be offering two sessions on Jan 21! We’ll open registration up at 2PM on Friday the 6th (today.) See below for the schedule and the details, and lots more on the workshop page. Both promise to leave you smiling, exhausted, stuffed, and excited to shoot with new knowledge and skills. Just like previous workshops, we will have some of our best models on hand to serve as models in multiple scenes, lunch will be catered by the Keweenaw Co-op, and hands-on instruction will switch rapidly from “showing” to “doing.” Fun fun! So… brief details are below, and after 2PM, use the workshop page to learn more and sign-up. Put that new, confusing camera that Santa got you into good use!
