Rayko Instructor Interview

By the Home Depot, I-80, Oakland, CA (32" x 40" Digital C-print; 2011) 

Happy to have this new interview up on the Rayko Website - teaching there has been a fun learning experience. As they say, to truly learn a subject; teach it. Between the new students and the changing technology, teaching the beginning digital courses remains exciting. Photography is a magical thing, and showing people how to utilize their cameras helps me re-consider the basic precepts of photography - a treat within itself.

Lighting Studio Fun

More fun teaching digital 2 at Rayko. The ghostly image above was created by setting my camera to a long exposure during which time the strobes went off. Really this was the only way to go at the time, as a student had the pocket wizard (strobe control), so a long exposure and the hope that I would hit my shutter not too long before she hit hers was the way participate. Another fun class, & it looks like all of our feet are off the ground at the same time -- impressive.
