Poly Tabletop Photo Workshop Wrapup

Yesterday (Saturday, April 19th), Rick Wiley and Steff Strachan led a successful workshop at the PAB for Poly members.

The subject was tabletop photography and included setups for photographing objects under black light, bubble-encased flowers immersed in seltzer, glassware and a few others.

I didn’t count them, but I’d say there were around 15 Poly members in attendance and having fun trying new techniques. I’ve included a few photos.

New Discount for Poly Members from

Poly Photo Club members now get a discount when renting from Get 10% off any rental. Normally, you’d have to become a BorrowLenses member and pay $99/year for this privilege. But now, as a Poly member, all you need is a free BorrowLenses account.

Here’s how to get the discount:

  1. click on the BL logo over on the right side of our homepage,
  2. fill in your name and email address and check the box to certify that you are a Poly member,
  3. click the Submit button.

In a few minutes, you’ll receive an email containing your discount code and a link to set up a free BorrowLenses account.

BorrowLenses rents just about anything related to photography: camera bodies, lenses, lighting; you name it. I’ve rented lenses from them several times and highly recommend them. The service is quick and it’s a lot cheaper than buying a lens that you might use only occasionally. And since they’re located in the San Francisco bay area, we Californians don’t have to worry weather-related shipping delays from east coast rental locations.
