Yesterday, while working for my assistantship, I was trying to illustrate a point to a student in one of the more basic photography classes that is actually taught by a fellow graduate student, Phoebe Sexton, that while I could not equip him with the camera and lens that he wanted because of a lack of availability, even an old Nikon D50 and a basic 18-55mm lens can yield good images.  It’s the experienced hand, not the equipment.  Sure, the gear helps, but still.  Now, if only I had checked the settings he was using before Josh Bickel assisted me in making my point, I would have told it not to add two thirds of a stop too much light…

I’ve also included a couple more images from last night, of my hosts for the evening, Val and Jamie, and some of my closer friends:
