It's time for you to take some photos and share them with me and all sorts of other folks on our Group Shots Photo Assignment public group on Flickr. Now this is our fifth public group. We also have them for the Natural Light, Off Camera Flash, Backlit Portrait, and Fill-Flash Portrait photo assignments. So there is lots of shots, and if you haven't been over to those, take a look at them.

There's lots of good stuff going on there, lots of contributions from people just like you who are learning these techniques and practicing and sharing them with others. Now we've added the shots that we've used in our review, so you can take a closer look at him. You can even download them if you want. And then there is a Discussion area, so if you have questions about things that you've seen in the training, I keep it eye on this and I will do my best to answer your question as quickly as possible. And to get the ball rolling, I even posted the equipment list for some of the items that you've seen in the training, in case you want to find out more about the FlashBender or the Lightsphere, or some of the other goodies that we used.
