With the rise in shipping costs, beginning April 1st JDLab will update our shipping prices. For most orders, this will only add an extra $1 to each shipment. While this doesn’t sound like a lot, multiplied by the thousands of orders we ship every month, it allows us to keep our prices low on prints and services.
Here are 2 ways you can continue to keep your shipping costs low:

A workshop titled, “Lighting for Fun and Profit” by Claude Jodoin will be held Tuesday, September 20 at 6:30pm at the Troy Community Center (directions). The class is sponsored by the Detroit Professional Photographers Association (DPPA) and JDLab.
No matter what part of the market is being served by your studio, getting the images right in the camera saves countless hours on the computer later trying to fix bad exposures and color casts.
Using simplified methods, Claude will show you how to master any light in any situation using all modern lighting tools. You will learn how to create several different looks in salable portraits using window light, umbrellas, boxes, diffusers and reflectors. With a slide show that features all images, pullbacks, and live demonstrations, all your questions will be answered.
