If an army travels on its stomach, then the OTF Army did its job last evening! The Army landed for the Teaching and Learning in the 21st Century session in Toronto. Three days of learning for over 200 Ontario Educators begins today with a session about Critical Thinking with Garfield Gini-Newman.
The Army has its own peculiarities in its dining habits as well. We were able to wirness first hand the quaint Quinte habit of photographing food before it is eaten. The technique is demonstrated by member @aforgrave.
First, the main course….
Then the dessert…
This was worth a low-level flash shot….
And, finally the tea…
And, for post production, a napkin serves as a nice backdrop.
The learning starts in earnest in a couple of hours.
