Metro Camera Club to present workshop focusing on portrait lighting, tabletop photography

The Metro Camera Club will host a workshop on "Portrait Lighting and Tabletop Photography" from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feb. 8 in the main meeting room of the Will Rogers Garden Exhibition Building, 3400 NW 36.

Sam Hyden, from Oklahoma School Pictures, will be providing instruction for portrait lighting and posing from 10 a.m. to noon.

During lunch and until 3 p.m. members and guests will be encouraged to use the same equipment used during the lecture to practice the art of portrait photography provided by members of the Metro Camera Club.

Club members will display tabletop set-ups, demonstrating different lighting for small still-life photography and various portrait lighting setups.

Visitors are encouraged to bring their cameras. Cameras should be able to connect with the studio sync cords or wireless triggers. Models will be present, courtesy of Vail Models, and it is customary to provide courtesy photos (usually 8 x10) or a CD for their efforts.

The workshop fee is $10 per person. Pizza and drinks will be provided.

Volunteers are needed to help set up the room, put out chairs and help members with bringing in equipment. Those volunteering will need to arrive at 8:30 a.m.
