On Valentines Day 2013, I had a photo excursion with the COMM 300 Digital Imaging courses at BYU-Idaho. I was there mainly to help students learn about lighting and how to use their DSLR cameras, but I was able to snap a few portraits here and there. Over all, the experience was wonderful, despite the cold temperatures and the foot or so of snow on the ground.
