I'm pleased to announce our new series of events at the studio called It Might Get Bright. This will be an ongoing series of events designed for photographers in and around the Atlanta area and we will be holding IMGB events as often as we can. Some events will center around shooting and others will involve guest photographers providing talks, critiques, and/or keg stands. I meant to say light stands.
The first of these events will be a shooting event held in conjunction with the good folks at Capture Integration. CI is the company I bought my PhaseOne kit from and they have been extremely helpful to me as I've transitioned over to the IQ140. I had a ton of questions about medium format digital cameras and they spent hours with me as I tried to find the best solution for my needs. There was zero pressure and the follow up from them has been remarkable. I thought that since I had so many questions about all the different backs on the market that others probably do as well.
We'll have a number of sets ready to go for the evening with several different cameras. Everything from inexpensive used digital backs to new ones. You'll be able to step up, grab a camera, and fire away. Try a used one. Try a new one. Take a look at a Leaf. Look at a Phase. Try a back on a Hasselblad body. Try one on a Mamiya. Find out what the heck a technical camera is. Pixel peep the images you shoot to your heart's content and if you bring a drive, you can take the files with you to continue the peep show in the privacy of your own home.
We're limiting the number of spots to this to 100. If we hit that number it's gonna be crowded!
