I joined a camera club DPI-SIG here in Naples. It is a very diverse group. Everyone is so knowledgeable about photography and eager to share with "newbies" like me. One of the perks of membership is being able to participate once a month in a photo shoot at Still Motion Studio. This space is jaw dropping fantastic. I have never seen studio space like it before.
I set up my camera in manual mode and happily clicked away for hours.
