THIS MEETING IS FOR GRPP MEMBERS ONLY: We will have membership forms at the door if you’d like to join. It’s going to be a great year and we’d love to share it with you!
February 10, 2010
6:00 p.m sharp
Tim’s studio: TJT Photography, Suite 4-3, 250 North Goodman Street, Rochester. That’s the same building as BookSmart, opposite end of the building on the fourth floor. Enter through the big yellow door on the northeast side of the building, behind Good Luck restaurant.
We’re getting some pizza too!
That’s a grip—not GRPP. Webster’s Dictionary defines the grip as:
grip n. A member of a film production crew who adjusts sets, lighting, and props and sometimes assists the camera operator; responsible for moving equipment such as reflectors, gobos, dolly tracks, etc., about on the set. Confused?
Come join us on Wednesday, February 10, 2010, for a ‘members only’
(GRPP and PPSNYS) program, when Tim Toal and Pat Luke will introduce us to a variety of lighting techniques and review gripping. For those of you who claim that you only shoot in ambient light and you don’t need to know about lighting: you’re basically saying that you don’t care how your subject looks. Remember, ambient light is still ‘light’. You can never know too much about light!
The meeting will start promptly at 6:00 p.m. That’s 1 hour earlier than usual, so mark your calendars now and don’t be late! Our February meeting location will be Tim’s studio: TJT Photography, Suite 4-3, 250 North Goodman Street, Rochester. That’s the same building as BookSmart, opposite end of the building on the fourth floor. Enter through the big yellow door on the northeast side of the building, behind Good Luck restaurant.
Tim and Pat will cover:
Studio and location lighting equipment (purchased and improvised);
Proper lighting setups;
Safety on the set;
Light meter use;
Gray card use;
Portrait lighting: butterfly lighting, short lighting, fill lighting, window lighting, and more…
Bring a notebook instead of your camera. There is no charge for this meeting. Join your fellow photographers and brush up on the important details that will separate you from Uncle Charlie.
**Thanks Tim and Pat for sharing your expertise ~ we hope to see our members come and benefit from this extremely beneficial information from two of our expert photographers!
