Lou Manna is a force, a photographer from New York who has been in the business for 30 years.
On Sunday, he led a small group of shutterbugs through Pike Place Market, trying to get us to look at things in a whole new light. Whether that light happened to be tinged with orange, washed out with bright white or soft and blue-y.
I learned a lot, even though I'm at best a point-and-shooter. Today, all I had was my Flip video camera, but I muddled through and got a few pics I think don't stink. I was inspired by the others in this feet-on-the-street lesson. Their images were brilliant. Trouble is, I think I need a new $1,000 camera. When I start shopping, what should I look for? Nikon? Cannon?
