Learning together is fun!

September will not disappoint, members! Guy Reed of Tempe Camera is back again at the Sun Lakes Camera Club meeting leading another hands-on educational seminar on tripods and accessories. We will have camera and tripod set-ups available with four studio boxes. All that is required is a camera card. Guy will be available to answer questions throughout the night. We look forward to a meeting of fun shooting and photography knowledge when Guy is in town – a night not to be missed.

Our product photography workshop was a smash! Starting ahead, members came prepared with advised camera settings allowing them to set their cameras for accurate product picture taking. Lighting setups and mentors such as Bill Lewis and Linda Davis to guide members, Dan Dragoon and Janet Ballard organized a fantastic educational workshop that offered step-by-step, hands-on learning for all levels of photographers. Club member Wayne Divoky was on hand to not only mentor, but capture the action first-hand. Looking forward to round two!
