Jason, Lena, and I took a class with two Chicago Tribune photographers. It was a good walking tour of downtown near our office, but more valuable was the quick photo review the photographers did after the walk. Having professionals look and comment was very cool and having a large group of people taking shots in the exact same area was great as you could see how different people approached where we were and caught things I hadn’t thought of.
Sarah got me a swanky background kit, and this was my first attempt at using it along with the new 580EXii flash. I also have white and chroma key green backdrops. I’m pretty happy with how this came out.
Took another shot of the capitol now that I can do better night shots. I did a longer exposure to get building detail besides the highly illuminated dome. I had the camera on top of “tourist” binocular, I’ll need to bring a tripod next time.
