Camera Mart Demo Days (Fri. and Sat.)

Camera Mart has given the Shutterbugs two $20 gift certificates (no min. spending amount required). These will be distributed to two people signed-up for this meetup. If you're interested in going, RSVP and coordinate in the comments.

On ** 11/15 at 12:30pm ** I will have two computer-generated numbers randomly pick two people signed-up for the meetup at that time. I will send them a message, and they will have 24 hours to respond. If I don't hear back within 24 hours, I will randomly pick another attendee, send them a message, etc. Then I will mail the certificate to them or I can meet in downtown a2 to pass it along.

Personally, I'm planning on going to DD on Sat. morning. If you're interested in taking in your cameras in for free sensor cleanings, I would suggest getting there right when they open-- the camera line stacks-up quickly and it usually takes at least a few hours before yours will be cleaned. I took the Friday off work last time because I had two that needed cleaning-- I arrived soon after they opened, filled out the paperwork for my cameras, and they were cleaned and ready a few hours later.

There are only a handful of real brick and mortar camera stores left in SE Michigan, and I like supporting them when I can, especially when I'm planning on buying camera gear. Last year I saw many Shutterbugs and other photographers from all over SE Michigan at Demo Days-- it is always nice to bump into photographer friends. Maybe I'll see you there! -Frank

    I attended today's Studio Lighting class by John Williamson. It was a great learning experience. I am not sure, if I will be shooting portraits professionally (I am just an amateur), but I learned some tips that I think will help me. The instructor was great. Frank, thanks for setting this meetup.
