Thanks to all who attended Saturday’s Jewelry Photography Class at SD Continuing Ed. Many thanks, too, to all those who helped get the word out.
The class went well. At least, no tomatoes were thrown.
Since SDCE has no pre-registration and the school’s regulations require a minimum of 15 students, I didn’t have any idea of what to expect. At 8:50 am, there were 12 students in the room. By the 9:00 am start time, there were 22. By 9:15, we were up to 26, which is the exact number of seats available.
People asked questions, and almost everybody stuck around to the bitter end. Folks seemed pretty pleased and I had fun.
Saturday was almost entirely about cameras and lenses. Next week, we actually set up a studio and start shooting! Should be even more fun!
Big thanks to Judith Moore (a frequent contributor to these pages), who helped this “SDCE novice” to deal with registration and payments, etc. She made my first class much easier! Thanks, Judith!
And, apropos of nothing, here’s the photo for the day. The carving of a Vampire Bat is mine. The flames were taken from http://precisionpoints.wordpress.com, then modified and added in PhotoShop. The bat was carved years ago at my poor scarred, now-deceased kitchen table and shot this week in my Escondido studio. Care was taken to match the color of the carving to that of the flames.
