Saturday was an early rise and although we set the alarm for 6 am, Ed did not need the alarm since he was excited about the class and was awake early. Judie drove him to the class so she could have the car for the day. She had a plan to make some stops along the way to pick up some things and rest at the coach after some cleaning.

The class started with a morning of classroom work learning more about ISO, f-stops, shutter speed, depth of field, etc. After lunch we went on a photo shoot walking around Langley with a travel theme to show Langley. The photos will be review in class on Sunday. After a little more class room learning we finished at 5:30 so we could have dinner before the sunset shoot.

Judie picked me up and we had dinner before returning at 7:30 to go to a local beach for the sunset shoot. It was a lot of fun doing the sunset shoot, although the conditions were not ideal for a sunset. We were finished by 9 pm and then the hour travel back to the coach. It was a long day but fun for both of us, Judie sewing and Ed in the class.

Sunday was a repeat of up early (no sunrise shoot for us) and to Langley by 8 am. Morning photo shoot around town to get a different light and no vehicles or pedestrians. The afternoon was spent critiquing some of the photos each student shot and a summary of what we learned. Another sunset shoot after dinner but this time at Fort Casey State Park. We again did not have terrific conditions, with a low haze over the water. The wind was blowing and we did not stay long after the sunset to get photos with the sun reflections in the clouds. Judie actually shot one of the best photos from near the car with 3 of us and our cameras and tripods as a silhouette. The group said goodbye and we ended another great day of the photo class. I would take another class from Peter at any time and recommend him to others. Back to the Coach after another long but fun day.
