Melrose Meetups: Photo: Affordable and Portable Lighting on the Go!
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 6:00 P.M. – 7:30 P.M.

Always wanted a studio, but don’t have the time or money to invest in one? Have you been trying to get amazing outdoor portraits but just can’t get your subject and the sky exposed properly? Need a set of portable lights that won’t break the bank?

Come to our meetup in the Melrose Photo Studio to learn about strobist. What is strobist? It’s a way of using small portable and cheap speedlites to create amazing light effects. We’ll be going over the basics and then going on a photo shoot within the library to demonstrate the flexibility and power of using speedlites as your primary light.

As with all of our meetups we strongly encourage you to bring your cameras so you can try out the lights with your gear!
