5 Weeks (1): The Washington D.C. Group Shot

flattr this!

The last five weeks have been a wild ride for me, from Washington D.C. to Kansas City, via San Francisco, Toronto, Colorado and Canyonlands Natl. Park.

Come with me on the trip during the next few posts!

Stop 1: the Washington D.C. Group Shot

This was a fun workshop, exploring photography and light and post production and workflow. (And thanks to SecureNinja for providing the computer room!)

Coming up with a fun idea for a group shot isn’t always easy, but having recently experimented with a new type of portraits, and having done a long portrait of German musician Joo Kraus, I thought it might be a nice thing to try this with a group shot.
