Hello all!

Thanks to those that made it to last week’s meeting! This week we’ll be going abstract with some smoke photography. We’ll be in Ackerman Union 2408 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm this Friday, the 16th. Bring your camera and an external flash + trigger if you have one, and we hope to see you there! (If you can’t make it, check out this great tutorial here)

Intro class, we’re meeting at 1pm at the Bruin Bear on Sunday.

Photography in LA:

An exhibit on Stanley Kubrick is now open at the LACMA.The exhibit covers not only Kubrick’s film work, but also his photographic work for LOOK magazine in the 1940s. You can get to LACMA by taking the 720 bus on Wilshire to Wilshire/Fairfax. The museum is free after 3pm for LA county residents Monday through Friday, and on federal holidays (Veteran’s Day, anyone?)

A new photography exhibit has opened up at the Getty Museum on Robert Mapplethorpe , showcasing his still-lifes, nudes, and celebrity portraits. The Getty Museum gardens have also reopened for those interested in wandering the grounds. To get to the Getty Museum from campus (the dorms) take the Metro 761 ($1.50 one way) from Sunset/Bellagio towards Pacoima and ride two stops until Getty Center Dr.. Then cross the road and take the tram up to the museum. There is no entry fee for the museum, and the museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10:00 am until 5:30 pm.

If you know of other events around LA that would be interesting to your fellow photographers, please tell us about them or post on the Facebook group!
