"One Light Magic" Workshop

Jon Desson of Illini Studios will discuss lighting for portrait and still life photography. Don't forget to bring your camera for this will be more like a workshop than a seminar.

Park in the church lot next door, and try to park on the north side of Illini Studio near Prospect just in case there is any church activity that night.
