What we're about

Tri-County Meetups’ mission is to provide both an excellent shooting experience combined with an excellent learning experience to enable attendees to become a self-sufficient independent photographer. We are unique as compared to most meetup groups that the instructor is actively working with the students individually and collectively; looking at the students playback and histograms to insure success from both an exposure, but also a compositional and design aspect. Attending a Tri-County Meetup event you can be assured that the instructor does not just point at the subject and announce “There it is; start shooting and I will return in three hours.” Students do not have to compete with the Tri-County Instructor for shooting from the best place or time. All priorities are given to the student. Our master photography instructors seldom shoots any photos. If the instructor does shoot, it is usually to provide a better teaching situation for the student to review a composition in the playback of the camera that the student may not have understood. Our meetups help build a stronger portfolio for both the beginner or the professional. We encourage the asking of questions and because we specialize in small size groups, the mandate of one-on-one assistance is easily accomplished.

We have state of the art studio facilities and offer group shoots on location and outdoors as the season permits. We also offer meet-ups with open computer time to edit and print your best images. Critique sessions or portfolio reviews are offered usually on the second Friday night of every other month co-Sponsored by Midwest Photography Workshops.

Sunsets & Swimsuits Sports Illustrated style #502

Maple Beach Boat Rental and Ice Rink - Kensington Metropark

$100.00

This Friday evening workshop will provide not only a wonderful shooting opportunity but also instruction on how to use the late evening golden quality of light to enhance the texture and bring out the warmth available at that time of evening. Learn to use reflectors rather than harsh flash to fill in shadows, and how to expand or compress the scene simply by changing lens focal length. Learn how to pose the model to look like the professional calendar models or those gracing the covers of your favorite magazine. Bring telephoto lenses and a flash. Students are expected to meet at the Kensington Metro Park Maple Beach shelter by 6:00pm. We will shoot until we run out of light. Rain date is the following week. Park admission not included in fee.

Fee for this event is: $100.00

Best of all, students can print their photos on our calibrated Epson 4880 printers. This three and a half hour workshop is an excellent opportunity to print your portfolio and fine art prints up to 13”x19”.
