Day one began with registration and presentations given by David Tejada and by David Black. The presentations were outstanding; very educational as well as informative. We learned so much about light; harsh light, soft light, colored light, lighting angles, light boxes, bouncing light and lighting scenes and lighting subjects. In addition, David and David were very patient and helpful in helping us set up our cameras for off camera flashes. After lunch we boarded our bus to the USS Yorktown for our first photo shoot. The models were dressed in aviation attire. We broke up into two groups and were shown how to set up and light the model with the airplanes in the background. While there were some problems with interference on the ship as sometimes the flashes would not sync with the cameras, this was an opportunity for professionals to show us how to work through problems and still get the shot. Flexibility, patience and perseverance got us the shots we wanted.
