    Today I had the distinct pleasure of shooting with Ron Reznick(thanks Jeff for the introduction).
    In the couple hours we spend shooting, I must say I learned much, including but not limited to the fact I have much to learn :rolleyes:

    Only one of these shots are from our time (I'm still processing a couple more) but they all reflect his teachings.

  2. You lucky dog you!

    I hit SJWS quickly today, Eric gave me a call and was headed down...I'm about ready to post some BIFs.

    I've been contemplating hiring Ron for a 2 hour session...it will be worth it. Before I do I need to upgrade my janky ballhead and get a 1.4x TC instead of the 2.0x...

    Nice captures, I really dig the Kite...a lot!

  6. When I first saw the subject title, I thought it was more Kung Fu stuff! :rolleyes: You are quite lucky getting to shot with RR.

    That first shot is stunning... Get that wall started!
     
  7. Pretty soon they'll be referring to you as the Master, young grasshopper!

    Very nice shots, Ben!!

    Excellent shots. How long did you spend with Ron? He is a great teacher.

    Hi Brett saw some of your posts, well done, will reply on them in a bit.
    If you can arrange a session with Ron it for sure will be well worth it.

    Always happy to hear when you like my work.
    See you soon.

    Ben,

    Excellent shots. I have to fully agree with your assessment of Ron. He's about as good a teacher as one could hope for, and a genuinely nice guy to boot. I really hope that we can talk him into coming to Merritt III for some east coast shooting. :smile:

    Hi Gil
    thank you
    I don't want anyone to get the wrong idea. This was just a chance meeting and not one of his classes.
    You know just a few photog lovers out for an late afternoon shoot.
    Having said that shooting with such a fine photographer and really nice guy, just somehow elevates everyone else's shots who gets to be there, and I feel blessed to have been part of it.
