getting close, I should be in portland a few weeks unfortunately after this but hopefully can make the next one
I think I can make this. Count me in. I'll bring grids and snoots just in case we need 'em.

Yes, can everyone bring their grids and snoots. This one will be a show and tell as much and a learning discussion.

Cool an event on my day off! :) I run the site here in Hillsboro, I can bring some pre-made, ready to use grids as well as speedlight honeycomb items. This will save a lot of you folks the frustration of glueing straws together which is maddening.
And althought I sell the grids my skills in using them needs some improvement. Especially with dual flash shots. I see folks that are masters at speedlight shots so I hope to learn from you folks as well.

Sounds like a good way to refine some skills. See ya there!
kenneth barton PRO 8 years ago

Yes. I will make it a bit brifer this time though. Last time I didn't have a feel for how long it would take to get through the material I had prepared.

Just realized that I can't make it now. Sorry to miss it!
Studio Gentry 8 years ago
Since we have a percentage scale, I'm 95% sure I'll be there. :-)
