The next workshop meeting will be held on Wednesday October 18th at 7:30 PM.

Homework assignment: Please bring 4 portrait clippings that you are interested in. We will see if we can analyze the type of lighting used and see if we can duplicate it in the studio. We will have a female model for the next meeting and possibly a makeup artist/hair stylist.

There are still 5 spaces open and it is not too late to join the group.
