About our Club

 

PHOTO GROUP : Tue. 14th AUGUST, 2018

Our Meeting on Tuesday 14th August will be all about printing.

Rob Knowles will be bringing us up to speed on his printing techniques which have been evident in images that he has entered into competition since joining the Club a few months ago.

Rob will cover two options of printing using Photoshop, i.e. with profiles and without.  File locations for profiles.

Rob will also speak about the benefits of printing with RIP software and where you could purchase this for $50, also file settings for printers.  For those who are not familiar with RIP software, I suggest that you have a chat with Mr. Google, so that you will be somewhat au-fait with it when attending Rob’s talk. 

Rob will also have a selection of papers for comparison.

At the conclusion of Rob’s presentation we will run a 35 minute video from Luminous Landscapes covering some aspects of printing from Lightroom.

In-between all of this we can indulge in hot chocolate, Tim-Tams and other delectables. 

Look forward to seeing you all.

KNOW YOUR FLASH – WORKSHOP with MALCOLM FACKENDER Tue.17th JULY,2018

The 3rd Tuesday in July is being put to good use as we will be running a “Know your Flash” workshop with Malcolm Fackender. If time permits, Malcolm will briefly discuss the use of ‘light modifiers’ too.

Whilst we as photographers love the feel of soft natural light, there are times when you are faced with difficult lighting conditions, and understanding how to use artificial light can be of tremendous value.

Flash photography is also very useful in Portraiture and Macro photography.

Yes, I realise that it is another Tuesday night at the Club especially on these Winter evenings when you just want to be warm and cosy at home, however, I do ask members to please make the effort to attend as I am sure that you will go away having learned something very useful.

Please bring your Camera with fully charged batteries (of course), external flash units if you have them, and your Camera Manual.

Malcolm will not be au-fait with all Camera makes and may need to refer to the Manual in order to help with the respective set up.

We will meet at the usual time of 7.30 pm., at the School Hall, and …. you may even get some “Tim-Tams” and hot Chocolate !

Should you have any queries, please let me know.

Thank you.

Dawne Harridge (Secretary)
