Camera Camp, Day Four

long day. I'll need a rest when I get home. (Note to self: ha ha!). For our afternoon shoot, we went to an old school in the larger (meaning, big enough to have a WalMart) neighboring town of Rockland. It been converted into an arts center but still has great signs of wear. Interesting spaces.

I had no idea where to start. There was an auditorium with a black-box proscenium that looked interesting, but what to do with it? Then I found a costume closet above the stage. Okay! It still took me over an hour to work out the lighting with my limited set of equipment. This is what I came up with in the end.

Tonight is the big finale with a Maine lobster dinner and an amazing video show of all this week's classes' work. I'll post our bizarre class picture as soon as I get a copy. Down to New Jersey tomorrow to see all my family at my sister's house.

That top shot is flawless in my humble opinion. Really brilliant.

I'm just now getting around to reading your posts about the camera camp. What a great experience that must have been! It's a bit humbling to me to see the talent that emerges with correct instruction and plenty of practice. Carry on! Great photo, and I agree with BC.

Looks like Arlene didn't just hammer on lighting, she made her happy campers wrestle with a little creativity as well. I've enjoyed seeing what you all have done this week. I'll just bet our Bob gets an A+. Whoohooo!

Basically, the only thing really understood was "lobster dinner." You nailed the texture of the fur, however. Is there a camp song?
