A few facts about Poynter’s senior scholar Roy Peter Clark.
- He’s a Gleek.
- He plays rock piano.
- He claims to have seen every episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer at least three times.
He’s also an incredible instructor whose discussion about writing I enjoyed this afternoon. Especially when the inverted pyramid model somehow became the martini model.
Later, we checked out gear from Poynter, which means that a substantial number of Canon 5D Mark II’s are now distributed among budding photographers. I’m pumped about this, as you can well imagine.
After we played around with the gear, which also included video cameras and Marantz audio recorders, eight of us went to the Red Mesa Cantina for drinks and dinner. On the way home, I freaked out my two passengers — Emily and Kendall — by taking photos while driving.
Some of us later returned to Red Mesa to discuss our projects, and I appropriated Emily’s checked-out 5DII to take advantage of its ISO 6400 capabilities. As we were walking out, I framed this picture when all of a sudden, a cyclist whizzed by.
