And here it is… The Pantone 2016 color of the year!
Three years ago, two photographers came together and decided to open a unique space to rival all others and bring something new to the Jacksonville photographic community. Three years later Studio 3E is still around and has in fact inspired others to act upon their own unique vision.
December is the 3 year anniversary for Studio 3E. What better way to celebrate than a free open shoot! The music will be cranked up to celebrate 3 years. Feel free to bring your own lights or use ours. This is an open shoot with an open theme. Models are welcome to attend.
Water and soda will be provided free of charge.
Lensfly and the gang will be onsite as well. If you are not familiar withLensfly, they are a local photography rental company. If you need some gear for a shoot or just want to try a piece of gear before you make a purchase – Lensfly is the place to go for photo gear rental.
Come join us Saturday December 14th!
If you Tumble, make sure to follow Studio 3E on Tumblr!
Well we started a Twitter account a long time ago, but didn’t really do much with it – but now we are back in action. Make sure to follow us for updates on cool stuff going in and out of Studio 3E.
We have been receiving a lot of inquiries regarding gear recommendations. Hopefully this new section will be of assistance. The Gear area is broken up into the following sections:
- Soft Boxes
Each items has Pros & Cons listed. We’ll add additional sections as the gear recommendations grows. Is there a piece of gear that you absolutely love and we don’t have it listed? So it ain’t so! Drop us a line and tell us about it so we can get it added.

Out of concern, today I tested each AA cell with a multimeter and believe I found the issue. One or more of the cells (AA) in my sets read very low power levels (under .5 volt) while the other cells in the set were much higher (up to 1.8 volts). I regrouped all of my AA cells based on their current power level. From there ran a set of 4 AA PowerGenix through a charge cycle and then tested the voltage. The resulting reading showed that all 4 cells were at 1.8 volts. Next I had to put them to the test. For this, I used a Canon 550EX speedlite. The speedlite was not connected to a camera and the pilot button was used for firing. The flash fired as designed by Canon and cycled very quickly (3 seconds between bursts). This result held constant to the point where I was concerned about the flash unit overheating. As a note, the fact that when functioning properly, the PowerGenix batteries will cycle a flash so quickly that you can run the risk of frying it.
Today Studio 3E launches the new Web site and has big plans for the site. Make sure to especially stop by the Forum. It has been setup specifically to support the Jacksonville and surrounding area photographic community by fostering open communication. Discuss upcoming events, technical aspects of the craft, equipment, etc. The Forum is free of charge and is provided by Studio 3E. Feel free to provide feedback on any aspect of the new site to firstname.lastname@example.org.
