Bill White spoke to club members about tricks of the trade when photographing a woodworker's finished project.  One big issue is the background.  You want to keep it simple, the objective being to eliminate distractions that pull the viewer's eyes away from your work.  Bill spoke of various ways to accomplish this.  Lighting is another.  Bill advised members how to make use of flash for indoor shoots and how best to use the sun when shooting outdoors.  Bill does not recommend incandescent light and fluorescent only if the daylight variety.  It is best to avoid point and shoot cameras and, instead, use a detached flash.  Bill photographed several projects for members explaining his techniques as he went along.  Bill was assisted by Cliff Bishop.
