Still Life Group

(available to members only)

We are changing things up this year and moving the photo sessions to three Saturdays through the season. The sessions will run from noon to 3 PM. This will allow us time to have some setups in place to photograph followed by a critique portion. Participants are encouraged to bring images from previous still life sessions or images taken on your own. We will find one or two people who are successful with post processing for still life images to share their knowledge with the group. 

Each Saturday session will be focused on a single still life style: 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 is all that is needed. A cable release would be of help.

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 Still Life Group, in addition to the general club notices, please email Alix Smullin at alix.smullin@gmail.com
