Official Capture Tulsa Kick-Off
The FotoFacts Podcast triplets (Jim, Alex and Rob) are heading to Bedford Camera in Tulsa to meet up with Pam Stukenborg for a meet-up and Fotowalk for a new event coming on October 12, 2019. So you get to hear this FIRST before all the social media gets out. The new event is Capture Tulsa, held at the Bedford Camera Tulsa store with 6 photographers, a fotowalk and food!
The Oklahoma ambassadors are meeting with the Tulsa ambassador to hang with the store crew and will be available for questions, interviews, videos and just down right funny antics before heading over to the Blue Dome District for a casual FotoWalk. We plan to be at the store from 2pm until 5pm and setup for the walk at 7pm.
The FotoWalk is free and open to all skill levels and camera brands. It’s a great time to socialize, network, learn and shoot in the comfort of large group of like minded photographers. Wear comfortable shoes and appropriate clothing for the changing weather. We are expecting low 80’s and partly cloudy conditions with the usual Oklahoma “light breeze” winds.
MEET at BLUE DOME at 7pm
Here are a few images from previous walks to get you inspired. We hope to have several models from Vail Models on hand to practice your posing and lighting techniques.

We are working with the wonderful folks at the Price Tower
to shoot in the lobby during this FotoWalk
We are traveling to NE Oklahoma for this FotoWalk to visit with our favorite bison photographer Ken Martin and visit Price Tower, the only realized skyscraper designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
We think the combination of oil history, local architecture and cultural diversity will get you some great images. But if you are looking for some portrait practice, our friend Karen Hays rounded up some talent for the event.
There also may be a chance to visit the Tall Grass Prarie Preserve on Sunday morning. And by “morning”, I mean so early that will see see the crack of dawn on the road while smelling the coffee you made in the car on the way. Email Ken directly with any questions on this largest (39,650 acres) protected remnant of tallgrass prairie left on earth.
This social event is FREE
Open to photographers of all skills levels

Join us for a 90 minute urban exploration walk in Downtown Tulsa and participate in a shorten version the Sekonic Meter Challenge. On this FotoWalk, we ask everyone to shoot with a “normal”view lens - 50mm for full frame & 35mm for crop cameras - and to cover up (or turn off) the image review. On the walk we will rely on the camera’s internal meter or the more accurate handheld incident light meter. Adding to the fun and the learning experience, we encourage participants to shoot in JPG for easy post-process review.
Not exactly sure how to check light luminosity with your meter? We got your covered with an hour presentation with Robert Trawick, resident Bedford Camera & Video Envoy, on the practical use of light meters both in camera and external. Don’t have a light meter… Use “Rob4Bedfords” for special pricing on Sekonic meters and thousand of other products.

Creative Kitchen Portraits
Photography is all about LIGHT and this workshop is all about the fundamentals of that elusive formula. Robert will stir you up with the FIVE properties of light and how to beat them - including the sun. Then we will sprinkle in the simple way to understand different light meters and why they are always correct, but you don’t like the answer. And top it off with the ONLY difference between natural light and flash that is easy to overcome.
So interesting so far? Hang on… it’s gets crazy about halfway through the program. Robert will LIVE shoot with unique light modifiers found in your kitchen. Yes, YOUR kitchen. You are encouraged to bring whatever kitchen utensil, mixing bowl, pots, pans, plates, cups, appliances, etc. available to be part of this unique portrait. We will use those items to create dramatic lighting, as well, as possible props for the models.
Register now for this fun, casual and information packed program. Bring your enthusiasm, questions, and favorite dance moves. Skeptics and hecklers encouraged to attend with special seating in back of room. Fruit may be provided.
