A day @ Honl Studio...

{ David and his assistant Sue... }

{ David setting up the shot... }

{ David goes to war zones to document the people... }

I was fortunate to get to go to a 3-hour photo lighting session with David Honl.  Not only is he a great photographer, but he develops lots of gadgets for use on flashes.  He is a very down-to-earth kind of person and his staff was extremely friendly and welcoming.  I learned quite a bit of new techniques that I'll be putting into use in the near future.

I was surprised to learn that he had just come back from Iraq, where he had been documenting the people and their struggles.  He visits war zones throughout the world on assignment and the helmet and flak jacket made me appreciate my life a lot more...Thanks
