We’ve recently added Nikon gear to join our large inventory of Canon photography equipment. This includes a Nikon 5300 DSLR and several extra lenses that match our Canon inventory. Stop in to Studio 300 to see what’s available for use in the lab and for 3-day checkout.
Once upon a time there was a grey cart that lived in the Vortex. It had a bevy of amazing items that Teens could use to channel their inner artist and get creative.
There was only one problem: the cart was too plain.
Using Studio 300 technology we gave the cart a much-needed makeover. After designing the graphics using Adobe Illustrator, we sent the files to our vinyl cutter, and then installed the finished pieces on the cart. The pictures tell the story.
Visit Studio 300 and learn about how to use the vinyl cutter for your next project.
Studio 300 offers several different microphone models for patrons to use. In this podcast, we compare three popular mics well-suited for recording spoken-word voice for podcasts, voice-overs, and other projects. Listen in and make a more informed decision.
