What do you hope to get out of being part of the SW Ohio Strobists Meetup Group?

One of my interests is grasping creative lighting and understanding how to artistically manage lighting.

When is the best time for you to meet up? Daytime, evening, weekends, how long, etc. I will do my best to accomodate the majority.

Evenings and weekends would be best.

Please tell us about your experience with photography and off-camera flash.

Generally photography since snapping my first shot with a Kodak Brownie as a kid, to operating a portrait studio inside my photography lab many years ago. My studio and outdorr experience was in portraiture, b&w head shots and seniors photography.

What type of cameras and flash units do you currently use, and what gear would you bring to the meetup?

I've been shooting with a digital slr, nikon's D5100 and have just taken delivery of their D7000 and and a speedlight system.

How did you hear about the SWOH Strobists? If a current member referred you, indicate who and when you attend your first group meetup they will receive $5 off their next fee.

I learned of your group on the Ovcc site.


I am getting back into photography, nearing retirement from regular job. Hi, my name is Rich Sears, and I have been working at understanding digital technology and building my portfolio.

What rich s. is saying about this Meetup Group

I recently joined SW Ohio Strobists and this meetup was my first opportunity to participate and make new acquaintances. This experience provided a positive first introduction.
