• 301 Original Photography Critique

    60 E Spring St

    This is an old school photography critique. Honesty and open mindedness are critical to the process as long as that honesty can be backed up by some learned experience. No one pays. No one should, really, it doesn't make sense. Especially not here in Columbus, a town where its community drives and pushes itself. That said, from my experience, I've not seen that type of energy within the creative community. I'd like to change that. How it works: - Must bring a curated selection of semi-current work (up to 5 pieces) in either PDF, jpg or physical form to show to the group. Please bring a flash drive. - an optional introduction to the pieces will be welcomed then we'll open up for group conversation about the piece - some drinks will be provided but BYOB is encouraged, snacks welcome - 5 minutes/image Rules: - keep it respectful - before you speak, you must be able to backup whatever you say - keep an open mind - same approach as art school, we're bringing it back The 301 Original studio is a safe space for photographers (and creatives as a whole) to grow. That means we are judgement-free. Think your material is going to be too edgy to show your family? Totally cool, anything goes here (there better be a good reason behind it though) so don't hesitate to push creative boundaries. Hope to see you at the 301 Original critique.

  • The Value of Music for Creatives and Makers

    60 E Spring St

    $12.00

    Whether you work in video or animation, handle marketing or social media, run an agency, or regularly upload content to YouTube, chances are you’ve had to fit music into your projects. And more likely than not, at some point the music was a last-minute “throw-in” that wasn’t really factored into the original budget. Maybe you bought a $50 track from an online music library, or maybe you used the good old YouTube-to-mp3 converter to get that “perfect” song (which YouTube then used to block your video once it was uploaded). But what if we told you there was a better, easier, and in the long run, more cost effective way to utilize music in your work? Andy and Carlin (Waveform) will show you why the right music is so important to the finished quality of any production, and why a little planning on the front-end of a creative project can create huge differences in the outcome. As songwriters and producers who’ve written custom music for the likes of Target, P&G, AVON, and more, they will walk through steps you can take to improve the sonic quality of your work. They’ll also share why custom music is more affordable and approachable than you think. Lastly, they’ll cover how they work as artists in a business-centric space, and what they’ve picked up as best practices that creatives in other industries may find beneficial. The Meetup is hosted by 301 Original, a photography, branding, and design studio in downtown Columbus, Ohio. 301 Original’s work has been featured in publications including Forbes and GQ, and this event is part of their commitment to fostering a collaborative creative community in Columbus. Included in the attendance fee, guests will also receive delicious local food and drink from The Pink Flamingo and Buzzsaw Brewing Company. The Pink Flamingo is a vegan pop-up concept started in late 2017 that aims to create a warm, community environment while serving primarily local, organic produce. Expect a warm, healthy, filling, and delicious meal that will flip your expectations of a plant-based diet upside down. Buzzsaw’s beer is quickly establishing a reputation around Columbus and the greater Midwest as some of the highest quality beer around. They specialize in Belgian-style beers and also enjoy brewing a range of other craft styles, from IPAs to Sours. They’ll be providing Buzzsaw Blond at the event. Can’t wait to see you there!

  • Introduction to Portrait Lighting In-Studio

    60 E Spring St

    $10.00

    You're invited to 301 Original's first workshop of 2019: Introduction to Portrait Lighting In-Studio. Hosted by me, Kyle Asperger. During the workshop, I'll walk you through my thought process behind industry standard portrait lighting setup. My career as a graphic designer stemmed from my love of super hero comic book art, segued into the drawing studio, then began to evolve into the digital realm. It is through my latter few years as a commercial photographer that I really stopped to gape at lights' bright, shining moments in life. If you can't see it, you can't shoot it...draw it, paint it, type it, bop it, you get the point. Light is a critical part of our world, not to mention that none of us would even exist without sunlight but I'm no biologist. Moving on. How many of you try to dissect exactly how they light movies? It's fascinating. And quite complex at times. My Introduction to Portrait Lighting, however, will break down an industry standard portrait setup with the intent of demystifying the impossibility of studio lighting. Chances are I'll throw in a few other snippets worth holding onto for future experimentation ;) Cassidy Smith will be our model for the evening. We'll have some bites from our friends at Hai Poké with a few brews to wash it down with. Welcome to the new home of 301 Original. We grow as you grow. Bring a notebook and a friend! Only $10/person online and at the door (covering the cost of our lovely model and the food, the rest is courtesy of 301 Original). We accept cash or credit at the door. Note: though it is a workshop, please keep your cameras at home. In time we'll have other workshops where cameras/other tech is encouraged. Thank you!
