Summer Events at LADIG

Besides our July 11th presentation on Time Lapse Photography, we have a few other things planned for this summer:

Next month, probably Wednesday August 15th, we are planning a big event to be held at Canon’s new Hollywood meeting space, with one of Canon’s Explorers of Light photographers to talk with us. More details soon.

We are also working on a Twilight Photo Tour of the recently opened Metro Expo Line, now officially scheduled for Saturday, August 18th at 5PM. This will be a docent-led tour much like our Union Station and Art Deco tours of last summer, starting at 5PM from the Expo Line Culver City Station. All Aboard!

Finally, those of you who attended Lisa Carney’s presentation in June and want to learn more about compositing might consider signing up for her one day intensive workshop on July 21st. I am looking at those Hollywood movie posters with new eyes, especially the ones for The Dark Knight Rises that are everywhere right now: Layers! Noise! Debris!
