    The event was well done. It's small , congenial size -- 4 photographers and 1 guide -- was perfect. Pike Place Market is obviously a visually loaded environment, so there was no shortage of subjects to photograph. The instructor did a great job of distilling the chaos of the environment so we could focus on learning something about street photography. I'd give it a 5-star rating and would consider doing more events of this kind. In short, it was a positive experience.

    I had a great time! Even though I have "advanced" experience it was good to see how other photographers approach the work - the thinking behind the making of a photograph. Ideas for composition were excellent - A,B,C... and I had never thought of holding my camera at waist level. I got several nice shots doing that. Valentina was great to talk to and it is really apparent she takes great joy in photography and sharing her knowledge with others.

    Kevin recovered well from a last minute location change, necessitated by overcrowding at Golden Gardens due to high heat. The Ballard Locks provided ideal conditions and some really wonderful background. Kevin did a great job explaining all of the elements in ways that a near novice could understand and was super helpful and knowledgeable with the hands on aspects that made the class feel very personal! I look forward taking another class with him!

    Good size, good pace. Kevin offered suggestions for seeing compositions but was not insisting we take specific photos. Allowed autonomy to try things discussed. Kevin shared etiquette and explained the 201csocial rules 201d to keep street photography from becoming adversarial. I really enjoyed the class. Kevin understood my unique challenges as I was the only film photographer in the group.

    Good discussion with the instructor, he had a lot of ideas and tips for us. It was also a good nudge for me, to get me out trying something outside my normal comfort range.

    Title or Location: Palouse Falls with Rainbow, photo taken in Palouse Falls State Park
    I stopped by Palouse Falls on my way to Steptoe Butte State Park on May 10, 2024. There was a beautiful rainbow at the foot of the falls, dancing in airborne water droplets produced by the falling water. However, that phenomena can be only observed by the eye or recorded in a video. I used a long exposure in order to produce the effect of silky smooth waterfalls and swirling water in the pool.

    Title or Location: Arches National Park-Moab Utah
    Arches is considered a dark sanctuary meaning using light painting is not allowed. I went to do Astro Photography in June of 2021. This was taken approximately 2am when the Milky Way rose to the center of the arch. While it is a dark sanctuary, someone was hiking on the other side with a headlamp giving me just a touch of light painting to outline the arch. I held the wide angle lens open approximately 13-seconds, ISO 1600.
