So today is the first day of the Light Control class. I pretty enjoyed it!
Our instructor is Brian Allen
, who does a lot of commercial work. The class isn't that big, just a mere of six students, myself included. Most of them already have extensive experience in photography. I guess some of them do commercial work too.
I just learned that Brian uses a Polaroid 195 to "preview" the lighting situation before shooting the real thing. Polaroid 195 is a lovely camera that you can change the aperture and shutter speed!!
The picture it takes is pretty good too!
I have a Polaroid 220, a gift from my brother-in-law who got it from an estate sale for me. I haven't tried it out, since it needs some weird batteries for its autofocus thingy. I'll probably get some batteries before I visit Toronto in November.
Jeff has arrived! He's going to have class at 7.45am! Wow.. I just can't believe it. If I were him, I would have skipped it :p
So when talking to my elementary schoolmate last night, I found out she has been to a lot of places like Puru, Morocco, Greece, and a lot of other countries! Wow, all of these are my dream country I'd like to travel to too!
Hum, looks like I really have to work on the Tibet trip.
