Local Pinup Photography expert Bill Taylor will be sharing some historic pinup photography, sharing some of his own work, and will discuss some of the best practices when engaging in pinup photography including; recruiting models with classic looks, special lighting, backdrops, costumes, and special post-production unique to this type of photography.

Assignment: Disposable

Whether you're looking to take on the challenge of creating compelling imagery with a disposable camera, or you're going to interpret the theme in a different way with the gear you already have, you can be sure this month's assignment isn't a "throw-away."

A few reminders about some of the basic rules of the assignment:

• Members may submit 2 photos.

• Photos should be emailed to us the Wednesday prior to the Thursday meeting.

    Excellent talk, Bill. You piqued my interest, and I'll likely take a bit of inspiration next time I shoot.

    Regret that I'll be missing a couple of meetings as I've just started taking classes for my real estate license. Unfortunately one of the class nights is Thursday for the next couple of months. Hope to make some other scheduled events, however.

    I'm looking forward to this presentation, although I just noticed that Brian referred to me as an "expert". Guess I'll have to use big words and talk fast!
