OC SmugMug Meeting : 08.27.09

OC SmugMug Meeting : 08.27.09

Photography

In photo news, I’m incredibly stoked to announce the next OC SmugMug meeting will be held on Thursday, August 27, 2009 at 7pm at Mesa Verde Country Club. Many thanks to Mesa Verde for opening its large, mahogany doors for us again…this venue is simply beautiful and I’m incredibly grateful to have their support!

Our guest speaker will the uber amazing [b]ecker and I’m thrilled to have him join us! I have a soft spot for Becker, as he was one of the first photographers here in Orange County to embrace me as a newbie when I first started. He’s a marketing guru and with the release of his online photography forum/resource/networking site–the [b] school–he’s done great things for the industry! Right now he’s on fie-yah, so I’m honored to have him present “The Love of Art & The Love of Cashflow”. This presentation is going to be awesome and I’m totally indebted to Becker for coming out and freely sharing his knowledge.

The last OC SmugMug meeting was a total success because of all the amazing people who came out, so I hope to see all your smiling faces again soon! It bears repeating that this meeting is open to ANYONE and EVERYONE…and is FREE…but I also accept cupcakes as valid form of payment. Please RSVP in the comment box so we can ensure everyone has a chair and we can make proper accommodations…thanks so much!

Happy Monday!

    In your next FAQs post, will you consider going through how you meter for different shots (close up of couple in engagement shot, photo of bride w/attendants, etc.) I’m interested in knowing what you are metering, as well as where your exposure indicator is once you’ve adjusted settings). It looks as thought your photos have very little post processing, which I am guessing is a result of spot-on metering. I’ve also noticed your style isn’t as "bright" as other photographers’ (such as the skin tones), which seems to make your photos appear less "processed."

    I wish I could make it, but I’m in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Since attending to the "Free to Suceed" tour in Denver of ’08, I have been using ShowIt for my website and SmugMug as my storefront for prints. Could someone please try to find out if SmugMug’s EZprint or Bay Photo ever plan to offer matting options for prints? That’s the only area where they fall short IMHO. Thanks! : )

    p.s. Beker is an awesome speaker and just plain "cool" dude.

    I meant MOUNTING, mounting options for prints. You know – on matboard, foam board, styrene board, masonite etc. While you’re at it, can you find out if they can offer semi-gloss protective coating on canvas prints? What else do I want? Just kidding……..
