August 28, 10 AM to 3 PM – Jones Creek Library

Indoor still life, portrait, water droplets and macro

The “Indoor Shutter” field trip is a special event. Taking place in the newly-remolded Jones Creek Branch Library, LPS members will have a unique opportunity to work with artificial lighting.  If you have participated in one of the previous indoor field trips, then you’re familiar with the process. If this is your first time, be prepared to have fun expanding your lighting knowledge. 

The “Indoor Shutter” field trip is a rerun, as we have done similar excursions in the past. Some of the sets will allow you the opportunity to test your talents using continuous LED light sources, speedlights and strobe lighting.  Using these sources, the plan is to include a variety of set-ups, including water trick and still life objects (plan to bring table top items of interest). 

We anticipate having 4 – 5 stations with a variety of backgrounds. Feel free to provide backgrounds that enhance your still-life topics. Consider, freezer wrap paper, aluminum foil, brown packaging paper and fabrics.  All of these items make attractive table top backgrounds. 

As usual fresh batteries and clean memory cards is a good idea. Tripods always encouraged.  Registration makes life easier for your field trip team. Please register through Visual Pursuits.

September 25 – Motor cross (detailed information coming soon!)

October 23-37 – Great Smoky Mountain National Park, TN

November 13 – Night Light Painting (detailed information coming soon!)
