Scott Pops Thomas During Seattle PFRE Workshop

30 of us had a great time yesterday in Seattle at the PFRE Workshop. Scott Hargis and Thomas Grubba gave us a informative and entertaining demonstration on how to light home interiors with off camera flash. Scott's friend Thomas Grubba attended the workshop and helped with the demos. Phil Meadows gave us some training on Photoshop and Lightroom and Bruce from Glaziers photo let us tryout some new equipment. I got to play with a Nikon D3 with 14-24mm glass... nice!

Our apologies to Oakland area Realtors for hijacking both of your photographic big guns for the day, they will be back on the job today.

About half of the attendees were from outside the Seattle area and are still on their way back home at this hour.

I've setup a special flickr group for all the photos shot at the Seattle workshop so in the coming days I there will photos available. In the mean time I posted one of the video clips that caught Scott flashing Thomas in the face during his flash triggering demo.

Thanks to all the people that made this first workshop a success. Ron Kenney, Philip Meadows, Scott Hargis, Thomas Grubba, Bruce from Glaziers Photo in Seattle, Debbra from Schneider Family Homes and our Sponsor Stephen Anderson from
