Join David Hobby for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a body of work in one day, part of Lighting with Flash: On Location, from Close Up to Portrait.
David: So, one of the things that has come from (INAUDIBLE) over the last few …years is the idea of a social meetup wrapped around photography. …And these things are really cool in theory. …But in practice, they start to get into repetition and what do we shoot next. …And hey, I know a cool warehouse and let's find a model from model (MUSIC) …Mayhem or whatever. And that's really neat the first two or …three times you do it maybe, but it starts to get to be completely hollow …after that, we're you're just left with the same pictures and maybe the beer. …So, what we're starting to do and at least in Howard County, anyway, and, and …Maryland, is to organize people around a significant event.…
Something (MUSIC) that you can produce pictures that will be of value to an organization. …And that's what led us here to the Howard County Conservancy. …Allison: The Howard County Conservancy is a land trust started in 1990, it has …expanded to also be an environmental education center. …And we host field trips for school groups, we have various history programs here. …
