Purpose: To learn / experience the advantages (and disadvantages) of using a prime lens which will force you to move your body in order to change the perspective of your image.
We will shoot using only prime (fixed focal length, non-zoom) lenses. Any type are welcome, but for this event, you will attempt to incorporate flash within your images.
The goal is to be able to balance your ambient (available) light with your light from your flash.
Pro Member Joshua Steinke is kind enough to volunteer to help me assist our members with this event. The goal is for YOU to leave this event with the basic knowledge to be able to repeat the techniques learned when you are out on your own.
Bring your Flashes, Modifiers, Pocket Wizards, "Poverty Wizards", or whatever you have to use. We will also have some extra gear for those that would like to try off camera wireless flash photography. Placing your light off the axis of the camera, allows for more creative/dramatic lighting than just the direct light coming straight from the camera's position.
When in the park, just follow the signs to Lake Pointe Hall. We'll meet just behind Lake Pointe Hall facing the lake. There are tons of places to shoot here. Most of all, we'll have some fun at this event and hopefully learn something new!
Although this is a FREE event for all members, please RSVP, especially if your plans change and have to cancel. Members may bring a guest to use as a model or assistant.
Steve and Josh will be there to assist our members from 6:00-8:00pm. After the shoot (8:15pm), we will continue just down the road to Mario's Pizza to wind down, grab some food and drink, and display some of the images from this event on their large screen TV.
