Wow. What an incredible day. We started off the day with a 3 hour critique session where each of the Master Class participants submitted 6 images for critique and discussion from David and LaDawn Ziser. Great feedback and a lot of discussion on both what worked and what could be improved in all of our images. Considering there are 11 of us in the course, well, 66 critiques is pretty resourceful learning.
After a quick lunch we headed out for Ault Park in Cincinatti. What a gorgeous park. We pretty much had the place to ourselves for most of the afternoon, then just as we were wrapping up for the day, it became flooded with people out to enjoy the park and more than a few out having portraits made.
Just like yesterday we worked in three different areas and with each of the coaches separately so that we had a chance to work in a variety of settings and situations. Each location had unique opportunities and its own set of challenges, too.
Once we were all packed up, we drove back into Covington to experience some of Cincinatti’s world famous chili at Skyline Chili. WOW! I perhaps overdid it a bit ordering both an Extreme Cheese Conoy and a 4 way. The four way was just absolutely magic. It starts out with spaggetti on the bottom, then a layer of chili with incredibly fine-ground meat. On top of that is a layer of beans and it’s all topped off with a mountain of cheddar cheese. Yumm-o to the extreme. No kidding. Skyline Chili is reason itself to come back to Cincinatti, I tell ya.
After dinner we drove around the block to the Ohio River with the Cincinnati Skyline across the river to create some more portraits with city lights and darkening sky after sunset. We sure had a lot of fun during this last shooting session of the workshop. Tomorrow and Friday it’s back to the class room.
Anyway, you know folks? It’s getting pretty seriously late here, my eyelids are barely open, but I did promise you yesterday that I would post a selection of images from today’s shoot, so here you go. I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed creating them.
