Location Lighting – May 27 – Baltimore – Members Only

location lighting-2

.

When you talk, we listen.  A question about battery powered strobes came up recently in the APA|DC Members Only Facebook Page. There is so much going on in that segment, that we thought it deserved its own event.

Tracey Brown, owner of Paper Camera in Baltimore, is graciously hosting a members-only battery-powered strobe shootout in and around her studio. We’ll have Profoto B1’s (and maybe B2’s), Elinchrom’s Quadra, Profoto B7’s, Dynalite Bajas, Q-Flash, and more on hand to test out. We’ll look at what modifiers are available for each and which ones work best in various situations

Due to limited space, this is a free members-only event. Please RSVP to director[at]apadc.com so we know what we can expect for numbers.

Coffee Break: Film and the Luminous Landscape – May 31

CoffeeBreak_May2016

It’s time for another coffee break! This is a series of informal group discussions on a general topic combined with a trip to see and inspirational photo exhibit.  This time around, we’ll focus on shooting film– what’s available, favorite cameras, where to process/print, how to scan it, anywhere the conversation leads.

Afterwards, we’ll head over to see the current show, Luminous Landscapes by Architect/Photographer Alan Ward. Shot on large format and panoramic cameras, Luminous Landscapes is a B&W show that explores manmade environments.

Tuesday, May 31st at 11:30 am
