Saturday’s Photowalking Utah event was great. The two-part event started with a behind-the-scenes look at Kenneth Linge’s new studio (InStudio) in Orem (Utah).

Kenneth, an international award winning photographer, spent two hours talking to the 50+ attendees about all things photographic. His sense of humor came blazing through as he kept the group laughing the whole time.

After a dinner break (Cafe’ Rio….yummmm!), over thirty of the photowalkers reconvened at the Historic Utah County Courthouse for an evening photowalk. With Kenneth in attendance, the “walking” part of the event turned into a lighting workshop on the streets (literally!) of Provo. Kenneth purposely didn’t bring a camera but instead brought along reflectors and portable tungsten lights. He graciously worked with the group for over 2 hours showing different lighting techniques.

I count Kenneth as a good friend and am delighted that the photowalkers were able to find out what a great guy he is.

One of the things I really like about Photowalking Utah is the willingness of the group to try different types of events. This ‘walk was no exception as we didn’t do much “walking” but we sure talked a lot about photography.

The next Photowalking Utah event will be on Saturday October 18th. The group will be exploring the halloween decorated streets of Gardner Village in West Jordan Utah. I will announce the details here at LeggNet.com as well as on PhotowalkingUtah.com when they are finalized.
