Photo Open House and Model Shoot - No Cost

Whether you are a beginner or an expert, with a compact camera or a fancy SLR, here's your shot at working on pro sets with great models at Martinez Adult Education. Lowell Richards, the photography instructor, wil be there to guide you in getting the best shots.
There will be refreshments too. This is the third of these meetups and everyone comes away having had a great time learning a bunch with nice folks.
This is a great way to build your portfolio. The models do the same when you post your photos for their portfolios as well. There will be at least three sets and twice that many models to shoot.
Look at the photos page above for past photo shoots, grab your camera, and join in the fun!

    Thanks so much Lowell for all the hard work to create the model shoot. Thanks also for your willingness to help us master, or as you say, control the camera. You've provided many with new skills through your classes and field trips. Thanks again

    I hope you all enjoyed the shoot as much as I did. Be sure to post photos on the site so the models can download them for their portfolios. Post all photos in the album set up for each model. Great seeing all of you!

      I know allot of work went into this, Lowell. Thanks for setting it up and all the logistics. Given the attendance, we all managed to work around each other very well.

      Thanks for putting it together Lowell... I learned a lot on how to expose for high and low key sets. It will take me a few weeks to get the photos ready but I'll be sure to post them for the models.

    Hi Lowell, looking at parking, what is the best way to access. The building (circled) appears to be nearer to the Alhambra Way side, can you access the parking lots off of Alhambra, rather than F Street, and bypass walking pass the various buildings?

    I'm interested in this, but have zero experience in this environment. Will there be at least an introduction to the process?

      There will be "hot" lights, daylight-balanced flourescents, so no need for strobes or triggers. There will also be one "available light" set.
