Lights, Camera, Frank!
An added bonus for the PGPG this month is a lighting workshop to be taught by the incredible Frank Siegel. Frank has been a Video Director, Director of Photography, and Photographer for over 20 years. His work has graced our event photo albums now for several different events. Frank’s video production company has won over 60 national and international awards. His video work has taken him throughout the US, Canada and Puerto Rico. He’s enjoyed photoshoots in Russia, China, India and Europe. Frank has taught lighting workshops for the International Television Association and, for the past 5 years, the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. Frank is an extremely knowledgeable artist who has opened up his schedule to the group to help foster more information-sharing and enhance the participant’s technical ability. Frank’s workshop will utilize a wide variety of hot (continuous) lights to demonstrate lighting concepts that are applicable to both continuous lights (yes, that includes the sun), and strobes. All levels of photographers will benefit from the atmosphere of sharing information.
The format for this workshop will be:
• Post production: Shooting for the final “look”
• Overview of light: Subtractive & additive
• Controlling light
• Tips and tricks on a shoestring budget
• Color temperature – When should you care?
• Rigging & safety
• Hands-on session
Frank’s ability to teach is as strong as his skills with a camera. Participants will be able to get a better grasp of these essential elements in an atmosphere that is both comfortable and encouraging This will be about 40% interactive discussion and 60% interactive/hands-on workshop. You should bring your camera and an open mind. Flash will not be necessary, but you can bring one if you like.

***Request*** I have a request from an attending member. They are collecting gifts for needy children and asked if anyone could bring a toy, it would be appreciated.
"...can you put it out there for the attendees to bring a christmas gift for an 8-12 year old. if they will. if not, that's fine. if one does not ask, good things don't always happen. even if we get one gift, that will make a kid happy on christmas..."
