Bootcamp Headshot Deadline: One Week From Today

One week to go, my procrastinating friends...

But as you can see by the sampling on this post, there are a few brave souls out there already posting their efforts way before deadline. Good for you guys. Still waiting to see if you guys (as a group) are actually going to take up the challenge in real numbers. Or perhaps I have attracted a passive group of recreational readers. (No pressure, though.)

On the other hand, I am amazed at the number of people who have joined the Strobist group at Flickr. (Of course, all that takes is the click of a mouse...)

If you are late to the game, there is still time to do the first assignment of Strobist Lighting Bootcamp. Just follow the link in the sidebar at right. If you aren't showing up for the headshot stuff, you are gonna have a heckuva time catching up with the assignments start to get interesting.

On a side note, I would strongly prefer limiting the pool photo posting to photos lit by off-camera flash - or extremely interesting photos with on-camera flash. That is kind of the idea of the group. One of the admins could just run through there, deleting photos willy-nilly, but it would be much better to self-police if you could. Muchas gracias.

No posts tomorrow, as the Hobby family (me and the missus, an 8-year-old and a 5-year-old) are going to be at the gates of Disney's EPCOT when they open up and go straight through until they kick us out at closing time - 14 hours later.

Crazy? Maybe. We'll see. I've been several times before, but it is the first time for the curtain climbers.

Just hope we remember the sunscreen. I'm the beet-red, burn-and-peel type.

Wish us luck.


UPDATE: Silly me. I thought EPCOT stood for Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow. Turns out, it stands for Every Person Comes Out Tired. But it was a lot of fun. Especially with two kids soaking up just about as much knowledge as they could in a single, albeit long, day.
