Upcoming Shoots for 2018-2019

  • January 21, 2019 – Night at the MuseumThis photo shoot at the National Museum of Industrial History open exclusively for our group, led by Buddy Eleazer. The primary focus will be macro and detail shots of industrial equipment on display at the museum, but wide angle shots are possible too. 

Upcoming Workshops for 2018-2019

  • Coming Feb/Mar 2019 – Macro: Creating Beyond The Basics, In this 3 hour workshop for members, we will explore how to use basic items you will typically have around the house to create beautiful macro photos. Have you ever considered using items like dish washing soap, olive oil, water, food coloring or even RainX to create beautiful images? We will show you how these items, along with colorful wrapping paper or magazine photos can combine to allow you to create amazing, colorful images. We are currently confirming date, time and location and will be posting this soon.

Additional scheduling is underway – come back soon.

Workshops are LIMITED TO DUES PAID MEMBERS OF THE LEHIGH VALLEY PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB. Some workshops may include a fee due to instructor cost or location. When attendance is limited, spaces will be filled in order of paid registration.
