Our hope is to encourage other female photographers to fill up their 'creative cup' and join us in cheering on other women in this artistic field.
Women look at the world through a different lens then men, not better, just different. Women pose models different, have a different vibe, different eye and shooting style.
We have a lot to contribute to the art and I want to start something awesome! We do a variety of shoots, and variety of locations all over SoCal - from people, to product/commercial, night/long exposure, dancers, nature, street/candid, have speakers, and so forth. Also have discussions on jobs, techniques, camera gear, education, what works/what doesn't, on location issues, and more...
*Please keep in mind all that goes into coordinating these events, and the uniqueness of our group, each photoshoot will cost (between $20-$50) to help cover Meetup fees and other expenses like models, makeup, studio rental, permits, etc. I do my best to find free locations, makeup artist for trade, and reasonable rates for studios. I want you gals to have a great experience & not let anything hold you back! We're awesome!
***Group rules & Meetup standards are: All models will have a shared copyright photo release, and provided photos from our shoots for mutual use. All photographers must upload a few (high res) photos to the event page for the models use.
Meeting #25 - Macro Photography
This is always a fun shoot, and an opportunity to try something new! If you like nature, and walking around admiring it, you'll love the gem that is the 'Fullerton Arboretum'. It is part of the Cal State Fullerton Campus, and a lovely hidden spot perfect for macro shots.
We'll meet out front, at the main gate sign at 1pm. There is a dirt/gravel lot specifically for the arboretum, be sure to park there and not the college lots. If you do park at the college lots, you'll need to purchase a one day parking pass.
***What to bring:
Closed toed shoes, $5 donation to the arboretum, water bottle, macro lenses (or macro lens attachments) & a good attitude!

Meeting #26 - Gel Studio Lighting Portraits
This will be a fun & creative portrait shoot. Instead of standard studio lighting, we'll add colored gels to the lights to create a whole new look.
I'll have lighting set up guides/handouts for everyone. And the first 15/20 mins I will walk you through the setup process & go over color theory for this type of look.
Here's my look board: https://www.pinterest.com/filmaali/gel-studio-lighting-photoshoot/
It'll be a great shoot!
I have 3 models confirmed :)
**Fee covers gas money for models, gels, studio rental fees & props.
