Eden Photographers Club Meeting - Tuesday, February 21th @ 7 pm EST (Topic: Lighting for boudoir photos)

Vaccinium Vaccinium
It’s time for another meeting of the Eden Photographers Club! For February's Eden Photographers meeting, which will be held on Tuesday, February 21st, at 7:00 EST, I have been asked by the powers-that-be to have it be Valentine's Day oriented. Given that I don't take boudoir photos, that presents a problem for me, since that would be the ideal choice for a topic. However, one of the secrets to great boudoir photos is great lighting - which of course is the case with any type of photography. As such, this meeting will be all about lighting - how to use it, how to tweak it, how to make it change a boudoir photo into art.

Also, remember to bring one or two photos that you would like to post during our meeting that everyone will critique. Critiquing and being critiqued improve you as a photographer, and I'm hoping we can begin focusing on critiquing during these meetings as much as the tutorials I present.

Further, two EdenFantasys gift cards will be awarded during the course of the meeting.

Finally, as usual, this is your chance to take ownership of the Eden Photographers Club. It is where you will be able to express you opinions on where you want to see the club headed, ideas for new activities, and topics you would like to see discussed. Of course, like all EF meetings, it will be a fun and free-wheeling opportunity to socialize with other EFers.

So, please join us for the meeting. I’ve you’ve attended before or have yet to make it to a meeting, everyone is welcome!

Oh, I may actually participate in this one. Lighting always seems to be a problem for me when doing those types of photo-shoots.

Oh, please tell me how I can get involved in this! I had taken a break from my photography and I feel like I went back three years in my knowledge.

Woohoo! This is a really great topic.

Also, while I've got it fresh on my mind (having just uploaded and placed all the pictures for tomorrow's truffle meeting for Eden Cooks), could I humbly submit "food porn" as a future topic for the "pick next month's topic" poll?

Food porn could be a very interesting topic, I'll second it!

You show up on the thread announcing the meeting - the meeting always takes place on that thread at the time stated. That's all that's needed.

I just want everyone to know that I'll have to start this meeting a little late today. I have to pick up my son at school at 7 EST, so the meeting will begin probably 10 minutes or so after that.

In the mean time, Sam will be here to entertain you. Just slip some fives and tens into her g-string and you'll hardly notice I'm gone.

Haha, that money will go towards a good cause: finishing my side piece/sleeve! Ok, it definitely won't cover finishing it, but it'll go a long way to help!

I'm kind of excited for this too. I found a really good place in my house for excellent three-way lighting; it's been a boon to my photography, even if it's just for adult products and not sexy pictures. :B

Lilies. Starting at my waist and going up are 4 different kinds of lilies, and then I'm going to bring it down to meet the dragons on my thigh and finish it off with a few scenes from Fantasia.
