Digital Days Boston Recap

Last weekend I attended Digital Days with the winner of BenSpark’s Digital Day’s Photo Contest for Boston. The winner was Andy, his dog writes the blog Stephen The Dog, and he had a really good time at the photography workshop, Digital Days. Here is what he had to say about the weekend:

Thanks for the opportunity to attend Digital Days. I was very impressed by both the content and the instructors. It is not often you get to spend 2 full days thinking about photography surrounded by other like minded individuals. I definitely picked up a ton of great information. Such as when shooting in low light you need to remove the UV filter from you lens. Who would have thought you have to worry about light reflecting off your sensor to the filter and back to the senor again. Yikes, it does create some interesting effect though.

The model shoot is definitely an experience not to be missed. Seldom do you get a change to shoot at multiple models over the course of an hour with an instructor commenting on your technique. Now I just need to sort thought the 6GB of photos I have. I wonder if they have a digital deleting days?

I highly recommend digital days for the novice-intermediate DSLR user.

Here are some of Andy’s shots from the Model Shoot.
