April 2013 Club Meeting

Post  Sheilsoft on Wed Apr 03, 2013 9:26 am

Folks,

A pretty good turnout for our April club meeting yesterday at the Hostal Meson Arboleas. It does make it more worthwhile when we have a reasonably sized group in attendance. To this end, we're continuing to push for more membership (with world domination by 2014!)... See other post in Photo Cafe section to download a copy of our club flyer. It would be appreciated if club members could help in distributing these around... thanks!

We covered a few things at the meeting, having a look at some surprisingly (annoyingly?) good iPhone photography, a quick tutorial on achieving a kaleidosope/reflection effect in Paintshop Pro, reviewing members images from the last month, as well as their monthly assignment 'Silhouette' shots, and lastly discussing Post Processing routines and methods, including Straightening, Cropping, Cloning, Histogram adjustment etc.

I've posted a tutorial of the kaleidoscope/reflection effect in the Tips & Techniques section...

Our April field trip will be on Tuesday 16th at Purchena. Richard will post more details regarding meeting place, time etc in the Field Trip section of the forum.

We forgot to set a topic for our monthly assignment... so, I'll choose... 'Windows' Reflections

Also, if any club members have any old photo magazines, please remember to bring them along to club meetings, so we can swap & share them around.

Finally... If you are reading this as a guest to the forum, please Register as a user. You will then receive emails/updates regarding club meetings and field trips... Thanks!

Rgds,
Howard Very Happy

Folks,

After choosing our monthly assignment as 'Windows' I realised it might be a bit limiting, and we'd just end up with a load of shots of, well, windows! So I've decided to change it to 'Reflections' which opens the scope of the topic to allow a bit more creativity... Hopefully!

Rgds,
Howard Very Happy
