SIG Night (7:30 PM EDT)
This Special Interest Group (SIG) night will be dedicated to using off-camera flashes to light still life objects.
After introducing the topic, Brock and Sherri Fenton will have two stations set up, equipped with flashes, objects and backdrops. One station will have larger objects, so you don't need a special lens to photograph them. The second station will be dedicated to macro objects. For macro, you can either bring your own macro lens or extension tubes, or, if you're a Nikon shooter, borrow one of two lenses from Brock and Sherri.
Their flashes will be set on 'slave' mode, meaning they will be triggered by the flash on your camera (either built in flash or accessory speedlight). No need for radio triggers or patch cords! If you've never shot in Manual mode before, here's your chance to learn how it's done.
All you need to bring is your camera, a macro lens or extension tubes (if you have them), a 'normal' lens (ie. kit lens), an accessory flash (if you have one) and, if possible, a tripod and cable release for your shutter.
