Recently I really had a great time with the Crosstown Camera Club back in February at Alec Jonson's Studio in Edina, MN. There were about 30 photogs there with everything from point and shoots to 5DMKIIs. I think the overall equipment price total would have easily reached near $30k.
We used three different stations with different looks for lighting and backgrounds. Not alot of time was spent in post here since this shoot wasn't a paid gig. But I'm trying to catch up on several projects all at once with my in-laws in town to help with our two little-ones.
We had three models at the shoot. Rex, Nicole (the blond), and Tearra.
