Week 11 meeting: Stills

I missed you all last week but had a relaxing time with family in Michigan.  Sorry this post is sent out the day before the meeting but I forgot to send it being busy before I left for my family reunion. Please forgive.

Tomorrow’s meeting will be on stills. Stills photography is capturing objects standing still or not moving.  When photographers talk about still photography they are usually talking about small objects or medium sized objects.  So this week we will work with small objects like water in a glass or a figurine or food or a toy, etc.  Therefore, bring in a few objects you want to photograph and we will make them look spectacular.

In order to get a better idea of how to shoot stills click on the “Vidoes, Tips and Tricks” at the top of the blog and scroll down to the last video on a DIY Lightbox.  A light box or soft box is a box used to create soft light around an object.  You are more than welcome to make your own lightbox and bring it in or come watch others use there lightboxes.  I will bring in a few if i get time to make them.  They take a few minutes to make but really can make a good picture become great.

See you all tomorrow night.

Oh, one more thing.  A little bit of tomorrow’s meeting will be devoted to discussing our Help-Portrait meeting that will take place next Saturday, Aug 28th from 3-6 pm at Redpoint Climbing Gym.

    Am I correct to assume that we will be meeting in the Hall of Nations again?
