February 13th Meeting

The program for the February meeting will be "Shooting in a Photo Tent" presented by Kurt Hertzog. Typically used for high key product photography, the photo tent is used for controlling the lighting environment for the best image(s). Whether you own one, are going to buy one, or want to make your own, see the tips and tricks on how to use a photo tent for best results. Demo will include: commercially available tents, home made tents, lighting options, tripod/fixturing options, and more. Whether you want to shoot for magazine layouts, catalogs, EBay or Etsy sales, Craig's List, or other, the best image will help you. It is easier than you think. 

 In addition please note below several up & coming "events" you may find very interesting .......
