Thursday 6th December – Photo Challenge

Thursday’s meeting is another Photo Challenge.

Please bring, on a data stick, three images. The first should be a recently taken image, as it came out of the camera. The other two should be of the same original image, but post processed in anyway you like! Let your imagination and editing skills run free!

Thursday 29th November – Post Processing Techniques

Chris Gibbins will demonstrate some basic image post processing techniques – first using a free image editing program, for those who are just starting in digital photography, then moving on to look at some of the fundamental techniques in improving our images using Photoshop Elements, followed by a very brief look at some of the extra facilities in Photoshop CC, for those yet to make that jump (if time allows!).

Thursday 22nd November

Print Competition – colour and mono sections in both Club and Improvers’ Leagues.

Judge: Steven Galvin

Thursday 15th November

Last week, we had a very enjoyable and instructive meeting on taking still life photographs. For this week, please bring a selection of your images for  showing and receiving constructive feedback. We found this format extremely successful with the first two “challenge” evenings and hope to extend its frequency in the future.
In the other part of the evening, we will be discussing photographic genres in small groups. So if you have any advice/hints, questions that you feel would be useful to raise, please give this some thought. If you want to bring along some images, you might consider prints or images on your phone. We will probably not be using the projector.
On 22nd November we have the next round of our prints competitions, and prints need to be brought to next week’s meeting. You can enter up to two colour prints and two mono prints on any subjects. If you are entering the Improvers’ League, do please make this clear with your title. If you cannot get your prints to next Thursday’s meeting please leave them at Jon Orme’s house on Friday.
