Foundation for Building Great Photo Equipment
Fun with Tinker Tubes
with Ray Peeples
PPA Continuing Education Event
Spend the day in the studio and workshop with Ray, and a whole pile of raw materials if you dare!
We will explore the tools and techniques to create high quality photography gear and complete three valuable projects. This will be a hands on class and folks should where cloths that are suitable for working in the shop. Jeans, tee shirts and comfortable shoes.
Each student will built an “Eye Lighter”, a stand up panel reflector and a diffusion panel to take home with them. If time allows we will practice using these new tool to make some photographs.
A lab fee of $80.00 will cover all the materials required for these projects.
9am – 4:30 pm
Coffee and introductions. Round table exploring all the things that enterprising folk can build with simple hand tools and easy to obtain supplies.
We will cover basic shop safety, tool and materials.
Shop safety, everyone will need to bring a pair of safety glasses and we will cover basic tool safety.
We will work thru design, form and function with an eye to building simple, portable professional equipment. Just because you made it at home does not mean that it will not work as well as the same type of item purchased in a store.
We will break for lunch and spent the slack time discussing other items that can be built by the enterprising photographer.
The afternoon will be filled with the actual construction and finishing of the projects started in the morning. We will finish the day with wrap up discussion of how these concepts can be used for other projects.
