With so much to learn and share, it's hard to know where to begin. Bring your camera bag, and be ready to learn something, share something, and shoot something! This is good for beginners to experts.

6:30 - Doors open

7:00 - Presentation: The Shutter. With digital cameras, directly seeing your camera's shutter operate is not a very common thing (as compared to film camera days). Just how the heck to they operate? Since the shutter speed, aperture and ISO all contribute to getting the correct exposure, how come changing the shutter speed doesn't always change the exposure? What is the "flash sync speed?" Why is a flash sync speed so slow if flash is supposedly fast? What is slow flash? What is high-speed flash? This will be demonstrated using a camera tethered to a computer.

7:30 - Shootabout: Take advantage of the photo studio! The studio will several backgrounds already set up, along with some lighting schemes ready to be tweaked. Practice shooting under controlled conditions, with a patient model*, and various types of light. The studio's flash system uses PocketWizards - if you have a PocketWizard, it's good to bring it.

It would be fun to shoot a small car in the studio. Does anybody have access to a small car we can photograph?

*We need some models to volunteer.

    Tam and Kristen have volunteered to model for us. I'm going to set up one set with flash, the other with hot lights. Remember to switch your white balance when changing sets!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
