SHOTBOXDo you need to take product photos, digitize paper documents, or capture art images? These shots and more can be accomplished easily with the SHOTBOX – now available in the WORK lending library. Phil Beffrey will be providing a full demonstration and tutorial so that you can start using this new tool.

The SHOTBOX is a portable, collapsible, photography light box that easily fits on your kitchen or office table providing excellent photography lighting with built in LED light strips. The SHOTBOX is engineered with holes in the top of the light box to enable users to take “top down” pictures of family photos, journals, and scrapbooks, thereby cutting the amount of time required to digitize these items with a scanner. It is perfect for those interested in Family History.

The SHOTBOX was also engineered for online sellers and bloggers with the addition of the SideShot arm extension and Backdrop Kit which provides perfect lighting and backgrounds to sell or share your wares online.

Designed for use with the camera technology you already have on your smartphone, tablet, or DSLR. Learn the tricks and features, then borrow the box to use for your own projects.


$10 at the door for Non WORK Members – help us keep the lights on and keep great programs coming your way! WORK Members FREE including Friends of WORK! (a special membership level for you regular attendees)

Noon-1 PM in the WORK Library.  Feel free to bring a bag lunch.
