Tonight, CTPPA members and guests were treated to an informative and cutting edge seminar on the topic of Hybrid Imaging. Suzette Allen, Cr. and Jon Yoshinaga, Cr. from Sacramento California flew all the way to the east coast of the United States to spend time with us here in Connecticut. I would like to take a moment to thank Panasonic/ Lumix and Bay Photo for sponsoring Suzette and Jon. This was an amazing topic that will give the members present a new product to excite their clients and keep professional photography fresh and exciting. We never think about adding video to our photography. I know that I have always shied away from video because I never was able to keep the video from shaking! But I have no doubt that I can hire someone to make videos that I can incorporate into my photography.
This was not your typical posing and lighting seminar. Suzette took us step by step on how to make a live talking business card. We randomly chose a member who registered ahead of time for this program and Marisa Baletti-Lavoie was chosen to receive her own "talking business card". Marisa was notified ahead of time and she was asked to bring sample images which will be included in the live business card. You can download the "Live Portrait App" at any of the app stores. If you missed this meeting, please ask anyone who attended how cool this was to learn.
