A Lesson in Photography

My sister Polly, who I have mention numerous times on this blog, called me this week and ask the last minute, to accompany her to a photography lecture. It was a free session, part of a multi day photo workshop sponsored by a camera shop here in Ft. Worth, Texas and Canon Cameras.
As you can see my sister (on the left) became part of the demonstration on placing people for group shots.
Michele on the right conducts seminars all over the world, and has had a successful photography business in New York for thirty years. You can read more about her: HERE
As she added more people, I became part of the group. She told us to gather in close like we were family. I am thinking the weird look on  my face can be attributed to the fact that I am wondering why the guy had to put his hand on my knee? 
Whew, I guess Michele didn't like his hand placement either. As you can tell, we not only learned a lot but had fun too.
Sorry about the quality of photos. Some nice lady took them with her cell.


  1. I wish that I could go to a similar workshop. I like all of the group photos.

  2. At least it looks like you were ALL having fun by the last shot ;) A photo workshop sounds wonderful.

  3. It sounds like a good learning experience.

  4. Dearest Janey,
    That looks like a real worthwhile session.
    Love the final photo and indeed, that hand was placed very oddly.
    Sending you hugs,

  5. You made me laugh, to be a photomodel is a hard job! That man likes women, specially eldery ones :)

  6. Oh you made me laugh Janey.. wrong hand placement :)good thing he moved it right!
