No I am just a spectator. The instructor/master's name is Chip. He is a 22 year old 3rd degree black belt. He is real good with the kids. His master (Jay Alexander) is a 7th degree black belt and 2-time US National Champion. I am glad Parker is learning from these guys.
I am still using the built in flash. I changed the white balance setting in my D70 to Fluorescent. Like many in the Cafe.......I have lens lust disease.....I bought a Sigma 70-210mm f/2.8 APO lens instead of an SB800. My justification...........mmmmmmm........I plan on doing more outdoor shots in the warmer weather. The next big purchase (for me anyways) will be the SB800.
