It was a sad farewell on Saturday as we dropped of the Chinese attendees from the PODAS in Death Valley to airports and hotels in Las Vegas. Not quite sure at the beginning of the week how things would go, we quickly saw that as long as we share the same passion, language and other differences can’t stand in the way. The workshops was an exceptional experience not nonly from the terms of photography but also new friendships bonded. As in all PODAS workshop we aim to give great education, but we also work hard to make sure we have fun doing it. There were lots of laughs, new phrases, shouts and cheers as we all became closer and had fun shooting some great images. We started the last day on top of Dantes Peak shooting the whole Death Valley from the highest vantage point at dawn. After a great breakfast we had a program led by Kevin and Jeff on Now That You Got The Shot What Do You Do With It. This was followed be several hours of free time to work on images. Everyone contributes to the final night slide show with 5- 10 images. After lunch we tried our hands at shooting people and this was fun. Locations were the resort gardens as well as the pool. It was fun to see the Chinese try to direct english speaking only models. Good shots were made though. After dinner we had our PODAS closing ceremonies involving toast to our new friendships and finally a fun slide show recapping our week together.
