Cincinnati Public Library Makerspace provides free access to photo studio gear #celebratephotography

NewImage

From PetaPixel:

As books are easier to buy and borrow in digital forms, public libraries are evolving and experimenting with new ways to stay relevant. The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County has one awesome idea for how to do so: the main branch of the library in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio, features a makerspace that provides free access to tools for creative people — equipment that includes DSLRs and photo studio gear.

It’s a space “where creative people can gather, create, invent, and learn,” the library writes on its webpage. Members can browse for available equipment online, reserve what they need for an hour at a time, and then go into the library to use the gear.

The “digital audio, video, and photography” section of the makerspace offers 18MP Canon DSLR cameras, “studio in a box” packages for tabletop product photos, multiple lights, softboxes, backdrops, and a green screen.

If you’re interested in making your own project and need some gear, we’ve got you covered. Be sure to check out our Raspberry Pi accessories and our DIY cameras.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
