Group Leaders

(available to members only)

The change to Saturday hands-on sessions has worked well. Thus, the format will remain the same for the upcoming season. The hands-on sessions will run from noon to 3 PM. This will allow us time in the morning to have setups in place for the noon start.

The Saturday session will be focused on a single still life style, such as traditional, contemporary, and KISS (keep it simple, stupid). If you have items that you can contribute, let the committee know so we'll know what to expect and can plan accordingly. A modest amount of self-starting instruction on concept, subject matter, equipment, and composition will be provided with hopes that you will then be able to take what you have learned and apply it to your own setups at home.

Try your hand and sharpen your skills at arranging tabletop creations. The club will provide lights and backgrounds. A tripod and short telephoto lens or macro are all that is needed. A cable release would be of help.

Because of the COVID-19 situation, the club schedule is being set in 3-month chunks. So for now, the first hands-on session (limited to 15 people) is happening on Saturday, October 17. There will be a signup process through the club website left side of this page. We hope to then be able to schedule a follow-up Zoom session on a weeknight for sharing your efforts and to get some constructive comments. Additional hands-on dates will be determined as the season progresses.

Come down and join us for a fun, hands-on photo shoot. Meet other GLPA members on a smaller scale and hopefully get some new images for competition. If you would like to get specific emails about the two spring Still Life Group meetings, in addition to the general club notices, please email Alix Smullin at alix.smullin@gmail.com
