Our October Speaker is Brian Walton and the topic will be "The Cheapskates Guide to Photography (and still make great images)"!


The cost of photography equipment can feel like a barrier to taking "professional quality" images, but it doesn't have to if you have a cheapskate with an eye for quality guiding your buying decisions.  We will explore old and new gear options that can produce showcase worthy images in the right hands.  There are plenty of inexpensive gems for camera bodies, lenses, lighting equipment, modifiers, and image processing software out there if you know what to look for.  Whether you want to buy budget conscious gear for all your photography needs or supplement your more expensive gear with some budget equipment to expand your capabilities and options there should be something for just about anyone presented.


Discover options you may have overlooked (or didn’t even know existed) that punch above the price to quality ratio the average sales associate will direct you to. Many budget options should be avoided despite the attractive price tag, discover pieces to look for across various camera systems that can help you produce great images.
