I've been wanting to do this for a while, thanks Vu.

An introductory, informational session on how to be a Strobist on a limited budget or with a minimal investment. Getting into off camera lighting can be daunting and there is a great deal of information to digest for the aspiring Strobist. This session will go over the basic equipment needed and provide firsthand insight on the different equipment used by group members. The idea of spending 1-2k or even more on traditional (brand name) lighting equipment isn't very appealing and practical for some of us.

During the session we will also show and discuss some DYI solutions to common or special situation challenges, light modifiers (grids, reflectors, snoots, etc) and some of the equipment you can use with minimal investment and also show the results that can be achieved. Have you found a solution to a problem that has not be addressed by commercial manufacturers or their solution was just to darn expensive? Share it with the rest of us.

322 members!

This group has great potential for learning and socializing with other strobists but we need your help in making suggestions and participating in the discussions and events. If you have a skill that would help the group's success, would like to be a sponsor, want to present or help organize meetups please contact me.
