THE STORY OF THE CAMERA.
As an amateur photographer, I’m always interested in learning about the latest technology, whether I end up using it, or not. I spent way too much time on the computer Googling Canon 5D camera courses. I didn’t find one for less than $1500, so I closed up the computer and hopped on the Santa Monica Big Blue Bus. I was gazing hypnotically out of the window as a girl sat next to me and ate her sandwich. Faint sounds of squeaky bus brakes pulled me out of my trance, and I turned to the girl. In a foreign accent and radiant smile, she pardoned her ravishing appetite. I asked where she was from, and she went on to tell me about her journey travelling from South Africa to Los Angeles. We spoke a bit longer, and before her West Hollywood stop, she told me she’d been sitting as a model for lighting in a Canon 5D workshop! I was both shocked and overjoyed, because this was exactly what I was seeking! As a model, she was also able to study the camera and keep the worksheet. There hasn’t been another workshop yet, but I’m keeping my eyes open for an opportunity to sit in as a lighting model without paying the $1500.
