Our first PODAS workshop for 2012 kicked off last night with a reception at Michael Reichmann’s home in San Miguel, Mexico. This is a Master Class and what that means it is for Phase One owners and PODAS alumni. We have a small group compared to our regular PODAS workshops, and we are more focused on advanced photography and post processing techniques. Today (Monday) we started off with a tour of San Miguel and then a few hours of photographing the people and streets in this marvelous slice of heaven. Truly a unique city with wonderful people, color and photo ops around every corner. After a lunch at a great restaurant in town we headed to an abandoned hotel to shoot. This hotel is 60% finished and then was abandoned. Lots of great angles and piece of architecture to shoot. We followed this up with a roof top sunset and one of the most magnificent homes in San Miguel and then topped the night off with a great Italian dinner. Stay tuned as this is just the first day!
