JPPG President’s Message – April 2017

“Hands-on March” was a big success. First we had a special workshop March 19th with the incredible Hanson Fong from San Francisco. It was a beautiful sunny day in the park and Hanson gave us some great ideas about how to professionally light a portrait session in most any lighting condition. We had live models, several photo stations and lots of photographers helping photographers. Everyone had a good time.

At our March meeting we had 3 hands-on photography stations: portraits, headshots and outdoor constant lights. Many members learned some new ideas and key information that will really help their photography improve and their business grow. Don’t forget to bring your 8×10 prints from those shootouts to enter into our People’s choice competition at April’s meeting. We will still have the standard categories, but also an additional table for the shootout images and the first place winner at the ‘shootout’ table will get a Chili’s gift card! Don’t miss it.

This is what our group is all about: Photographer’s helping photographers! Several people at these events had ‘camera issues’ which we were able to fix. They finally got their equipment to work correctly! Too often ‘online’ instruction, webinars and videos can only teach you up to a certain point. It often takes some actual hands-on help and assistance with a real pro to get you over the final hurdle giving you the critical information you need to turn your study into practical knowledge you can use. We are glad we can all be part of this great group and look forward to everyone’s future success!
