Photo Ops Day at Greater Lynn Photographic Association
564 Boston Street Lynn, MA 01905
Saturday, February 11, 10 A.M.–3 P.M.

Got the winter blahs? Cure them by spending the Saturday, February 11, at GLPA taking
advantage of the photo opportunities (AKA Photo Ops) available to you. There will be
still-life setups—regular and black light, Shiv Verma’s polarized light setup, and
glassware. For models, there will be two long-haired chihuahuas who love to pose.
There will also be a couple of children at various times during the day.

Some of the setups will work best with a macro lens. But don’t let your lack of a macro
keep you from coming. You may also want to bring a tripod for the nonmodel setups.
Models will be lit with strobe triggered by Pocket Wizards. If you own a Sony camera,
you’ll need the special Sony hot shoe adapter.

The cost for the day is $10 for members and $15 for nonmembers. Please see Chris
Germain or Barbara Rozavsky at club or e-mail to register to
give us a sense of how many people may attend. You can also register at the door. Visit
our Web site at to get directions to the club.
