How to Take Better Pics with Whatever You’ve Got

GD2 is excited to welcome back Rob for his amazing class on photography!

Perhaps you’d like to create a better profile picture, or to capture striking memories of your favorite scenes? This presentation will be a barrage of tips and tricks that Rob has learned over years as a professional creative, applicable to everything from your cellphone-camera to a high-end money-pit setup. Aimed at an intermediate but broad level and applicable to many kinds of photography, doing weird stuff with it is a bonus.

Rob will give us explanations of how and when to use various camera settings, even when counterintuitive. He’ll cover what to look for in lighting and composition, and how to use your tools and situation to best advantage. We’ll finish up with some ideas for improving your photo processing.

Please note: Attendees of this presentation are asked to leave their personal cameras at home for confidentiality purposes. Although the presenter’s camera may be pointed at the audience during the discussion as points are illustrated and equipment is discussed, please rest assured that no photographs of attendees or audience members will be taken.


Rob is a Chicago native who has always loved to create. A designer and photographer for a living, he has a penchant for the aesthetic of kink and tries to bring it into his play, as well as the design of toys, clothes and furniture.

He’s helped out with various organizations in Chicago to create safe, informative environments for all sorts of kinksters, and has been one of the staff photographers for Twisted Tryst for 10 years. Photos online with a RobRiver bug are his, formally Smutcraft. A really tall bald guy often playing with shiny things, or beating the snot out of his favorite people.
