From the Past – 4 years ago The good old days

While watching our guest speaker last meeting, I remembered this evening we had presented by various Club members. I thought you may enjoy this face to face presentation.

Producing MonoChrome Images

Talk at Wollongong Camera Club as members talk about their experiences producing monochrome images. August 2016. The Lightroom demo discussion is not included as there are many good tutorials on the subject that meet the needs of members. I recommend Serge Ramelli and here is a link – Serge Ramelli Lightroom, Photoshop and Photography Tips / Tutorials
