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.
Coco-theme pictures from the 2018 Ice Cream Social are now available to download and share from our Flickr site.
Family pets and their owners braved a warm July Sunday afternoon to have their portraits taken. See the results on our Flickr page here.
This was part of Fountaindale Public Library’s Family Pet Photo Day.
It’s the season for BBQs, fireworks and garage sales–especially items from the free pile. Case in point: this cracked mirror with a lot of potential.
Using Adobe software to create a design and then cutting adhesive vinyl using the Studio 300 Maker Lab Zing vinyl cutter, this garage sale find became a unique object for the home.
What are you going to create next in Studio 300’s Maker Lab?
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.
The finished portraits from the 2017 Holiday Memories Family Photo Day celebration are now available for download. Click here to find your picture, download and share it.

The August 21 solar eclipse was witnessed by millions in the United States as towns along the path were flooded with spectators scrambling to find the right vantage point and a pair of glasses to watch the eclipse. Patrons at Fountaindale Public Library eagerly awaited this event, but unfortunately for much of the time there was a dense blanket of cloud cover. We did manage to have a few breaks in the clouds that allowed us to watch the moon’s progress. At the same time, the clouds and haze made it difficult to take good picture from lenses that struggled to focus, to trying to find the sun to snap a quick shot. Hopefully, you had some good luck and here’s the the best of the bunch we took. Let’s hope in April 2024 when the next eclipse moves across the US we’ll have better luck and clear skies.
