If you live in the area, you should make the time to attend.  It is an incredible value, a chance to learn from the best, and a day of insights.  All in all, a not-to-be-missed experience.

Young Gymnasts in Beijing
Jane here
Joe is doing a project in China again.  This was from one of his visits years ago.  Joe writes, "Shot the above in 1987 at ShiChaHai, the legendary birthplace of many an excellent Chinese gymnast, and there have been lots of them. I got these laughs by leaving my camera on a tripod, and running a cable to my fingers, and then duckwalking back and forth, tongue out of my mouth, eyeballs popped. Mr. Goofy takes a picture. I look now and wonder a bit at where all these energetic little sprites went to, and how their lives have fared in the drastically different versions of China that have ensued since that time."

Joe answers more of your questions, as he will attempt to do every week.  If you have any questions for Joe, leave them in comments here or on any of his social media channels and it would be ever so convenient for me if you used #joemcnally  but even if you don't, I'm still looking for your queries.

On the road with Pres. Reagan
Jane here
There's a reason why photographers choose this angle.  Joe says, "And of course the requisite vertical, up close head shot. You never knew who might run a cover."
