FlickrFan Event: Raw/DNG Revealed / Assignment Do It Yourself Lighting

November 8, 2009

The Lancaster County Photography Meetup Group

Raw/DNG Revealed

Mike Miville will be explaining the mysteries and nuances of RAW and Digital Negative (DNG) files. What are RAW files? Why you should be using them. What things do you have take into consideration when using them, and how they can help your photography. He’ll have in-depth coverage.

Assignment: Do It Yourself Lighting

This month we’re going to leverage some of the techniques we picked up last month at the "How I Took This Shot" demos. We want everyone to rig up a do it yourself lighting shot for their assignments. DIY lighting can take many forms. If you have strobes that’s great, but if you don’t, try lighting something with window light, a desk lamp, a flashlight, whatever you can get your hands on. We want to see a lot of bouncing, diffusing, illuminating, so forth and so on. Get creative and learn to use light in interesting ways.

A few reminders about some of the basic rules of the assignment:

  • Members may submit only 3 photos.
  • Of those 3, 1 can be a legacy photo that you want to share, that fits the theme but wasn’t taken this month. At least 2 of the 3 should be taken after the theme was decided upon.
  • Photos should be emailed to Mike the Tuesday prior to the Thursday meeting.

If you have any additional questions, consult the Assignment FAQ or contact me at Remember to get your shots to Mike B (as jpg’s please) at

Directions to the Lancaster County Visitors Center

Some folks have gotten turned around getting to the Visitors Center for the meetings. Here’s some handy tips on how to get here:

  • The Visitors Center is located directly across the street from McDonald’s and Costco off the Greenfield Road Exit off of Route 30.
  • If you punch the address into your GPS unit, it will most likely take you into the Ramada (formerly the Holiday Inn) parking lot. That’s incorrect, we’re back a couple of hundred yards.
