As we get set to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing, our eyes shift up to gaze at the night sky. Many of us love to see the twinkling light of the stars shining above us and take an active interest in capturing images of those beautiful pinpricks. Astrophotography is an old branch of photography that has developed into a passion for many astronomers and photographers alike. Nothing will test your imaging skills like astrophotography. Here are the notes from the Fountaindale Public Library/Studio 300 astrophotography class held earlier this Summer.
Light painting photography is a fun activity for kids of all ages. Recently Studio 300 hosted a light painting portrait class for adults where our patrons learned the basic photography skills required for successful images. Then we kicked it in to high gear and added a flash to create some fun and interesting portraits. Go to our Flickr page for the results of the class.
Head on over to our Flickr site to see the finished photos from this year’s Fountaindale Public Library annual program. You can download various sizes of these finished portraits from Flickr and share them however you wish.
Congratulations to the Bolingbrook Garden Club for taking the first place trophy (Amateur Built Float) at this year’s Pathways Parade. Members used Studio 300 technology to create several elements of their design.
Proper lighting can be an afterthought when you’re busy taking a photo or making a video. In Studio 300 both our A and B/C spaces have terrific preset lighting. But what do you do if you need lighting in the field? Choose from one of our two LED light kits (one 3-light or one 4-light kit). Both provide bright, dimmable light so you can get the right look.
This Staff Pick brought to you by Steve. Stop by Studio 300 and see these lights in action.
