Many thanks to Rodrigo and his model assistant for a wonderful morning. As a 73yr old and 60 years of trying to take photos, I enjoyed the relaxed friendly atmosphere and was able to learn new ways to improve my enjoyment of taking photographs. Rodrigo was very generous with offering us the use of his equipment.
