Taking a Class and Watching a Fight by Alison Travels

I am always up for learning something new. I was lucky enough to be able to take a flash class at the Julia Dean Photography School in Venice beach for the day. Most of my photographs use natural light so I wanted to take a class to use a flash the correct way in certain situations. It was very informative with both technical learning in the class room and a few assignments in the field.

I love people watching in Venice beach. We all had a partner and an assignment to go out and practice using a flash for a fill light. My partner and I walked down the boardwalk and I found a spot where he would be sitting in the shade for practice. He sat there and I started taking his photograph and playing with my camera settings when this man approached us. He stood pretty close to me and was obviously out of it. He couldn't focus on me and he smelled like death. He tried to tell us how to get the best shot and how to compose it to make it look interesting. I didn't like how close he was standing next to us. My partner was nice and said, "oh yes, thank you for that information" while I backed away and waited for him to leave.
