On Wednesday January 27th we will host our initial “Portrait & Flash Photography” special interest group meeting.
The purpose of this group meeting is to help all who are interested, learn how to take better photos using flash lighting, in particular portable “strobe” lighting. In many instances a typical use of flash photography is to take “portrait” shots and this is a genre of photography we will be focusing on (no pun intended…) during the year, although other uses of flash photography will be discussed.
We are very fortunate with our club to have Teddy Tan as our group co-ordinator. Teddy is a very experienced photographer who regularly produces great portrait work and great shots using his portable strobe lighting.
We are also fortunate to be able to kick start our group meeting in 2010 by having David Gilliver as our main presenter tonight.
David is a member of Melbourne camera club and a highly respected photographer in his own right. David’s main speciality is the use of strobe and studio lighting. David is one of the tutors at Melbourne camera club, regularly teaching on the subject of strobe and studio lighting.
This should be a great evening…mark it in your diary. As ever, all members and guests are welcome.
