A Closer Focus – January 18, 2018

An opportunity to share ideas, images, questions, and inspirations

For the January 18 meeting please bring in a couple of your images from your work – a recent field trip or any picture you are proud of or have questions about.  We will spend about half an hour sharing.

Half an hour will be an open forum discussing issues at hand.  There will also be half an hour for 10 minute presentations by members: further information about PSA, a book report, gallery review, equipment or gadget sharing.  This month we will have the following:

  • Last month David Terao covered a photo editor called Lumiere 2018, plus showed us easy and dramatic initial steps to apply to our photographs in Lightroom.   In January David will continue showing the features of the new Photoshop CC 2018 and Lightroom Classic.  
  • Tanya Riseman will continue her presentation of the Three Legs of Exposure (ISO, Aperture, and Shutter Speed).  She presented ISO in the December meeting.  
  • Dave Powell will discuss Exposure Bracketing (a method to ensure a great exposure).
  • Gene Luttenberg suggested that we bring in some photographs taken from unusual vertical aspects, e.g. lie on the ground or up  on a ladder.

Future topics might include: compositional strength, HDR, abstract images, or anything else photographic you want to bring to the table. This is an opportunity for you to provide input to the SSCC experience.
