Oklahoma City SMUG: Low-Light Shooting Tutorial in Paseo District

Last night, the Oklahoma City SMUG met in the Paseo District to practice low-light shooting. Those that arrived early enough also peeked inside Visions in the Paseo, a photography-only gallery currently showing works by Greg Davis, one of my personal favorites. The owner, Glenn Filmore, was kind enough to stay open late for us (thank you so much)!

We had several new people, which is so fun! Welcome! The neighborhood was somewhat sleepy since it was Thursday night, but there was enough action for us to shoot around the area for at least an hour.

Some of us stayed late to grab a drink and a bite to eat at one of my OKC favorites, Picasso Cafe, where we pondered the mysteries of life – including whether video will kill still photography, the health of Steve Jobs, why some photography clubs fizzle and die, whether a Red Video Camera will cost less than an iPhone does now in ten years, and whether the print-business-model is dying. We didn’t necessarily solve these questions, but we, as photography nerds do, had lots of fun trying. 🙂

See you all next month, with Bill Richards demoing off camera light at sunset.

I am Holly Baumann Ambuehl, founding member of Mosaic Collective, LLC, which was founded in early 2017 and is based in Central Illinois. I own and operate Mosaic Collective with my partner in business and life, my husband, Nathan.

My blog posts feature client work, but I just love to write, so I also write about owning a business, food and drink, travel, and sometimes, my personal life! I am always honored when clients trust me to capture their vision, and equally so when my readers converse with me about what I've photographed or expressed here. I hope we'll have an opportunity to collaborate professionally and/or become friends. I'd love to hear what you think! - Holly

  1. Looks like you had a great meeting and photo op. It was a pleasure showing you around Visions and hope you and the rest of your club stop by often.

    Unfortunately, the owner of Visions abandoned his Gallery and the artists he represented in November 2012. He ran away to Wichita, Kansas to live with his Mother and refused to take care of his business and close out his Gallery or deal with the artists. I had financed his Gallery for two years at great personal and financial sacrifice. I had to close out his Gallery. What I found was an appalling mess. Many of the artists had not been paid for work he sold. Not a penny of the money raised from a benefit show last year at Visions went to the non-profit program that provides therapy for autistic and mentally challenged children. Even each and every payment envelope from the raffle was slit open and the money removed. Not a penny went to the program. Disgusting.


Thanks for reading! What are you thinking?
