Capital City Camera Club Meeting Dates

A few words from the Club President Photography and Hot Summer Days

W

ow! What a start to summer 2009. It’s still early summer but the heat is already intense. This kind of weather makes outside photography pretty tough so the best alternative is, of course, inside photography.

Inside photography doesn’t require a large space or expensive lighting setups. Tabletop photography can be accomplished using setups and lights that most of us can put together from what we have around the house or that can be purchased at a reasonable price at discount hobby stores around town. My first experiences in this area included some inexpensive clip on lights bought from Home Depot, some paper clamps, some PVC pipe and a white sheet. And the best part was that it was all done in the comfort of my air conditioned spare bedroom. Another type of inside photography can be done using window light for some really great portrait shots. Don’t let the weather keep you from shooting. There are always ways to make them work. Let’s keep shooting.

Studio Lighting Workshop July 18, 2009

The Capital City Camera Club will be holding a workshop instead of a field trip during the month of July (who wants to be out in the heat?). The workshop will be held at the Goode Building in Jackson Hospital from 9:00 a.m. to noon. We hope that several club members will bring their lights, backdrops, etc. and we will setup and practice at different “work stations�. If you have a transportable studio, please consider bringing your equipment. You may also want to bring along a model.
