Monthly Theme – May 2021

Our theme for May 2021 is “Self-Portrait with Your Camera“.

Show and Tell

This month will be a “show and tell” format, and so the photos will not be critiqued. You will have about a minute to tell about your selfie and about yourself – anything you wish to share. The photo can be from your archive, but you are encouraged to do some new photography! 

Submit your entry no later than May 8, 2021 for inclusion in the meeting theme and show and tell session.

Monthly Technical Webinar – April 2021

Tuesday, April 27, 2021 at 6:30 pm

The topic of the April webinar will be “Post-Processing Options

The April Technical Webinar speaker will be Brian Walton.

Brian will showcase a few free and paid photo post processing applications and how they might add to or replace your post production workflow.  Many professional photographers use more than one application to bring an artistic vision to life.  Each application has strengths and weaknesses and a few programs have the option for some level of integration into a single workflow.  Please join us as we explore a number of options and take a look at how you might be able to utilize some of these (even at no additional cost).  

The link to join the webinar is emailed to the club members prior to the event. If you do not receive our mailings, please sign up on the Join page.

Monthly Technical Webinar – March 23, 2021

Understanding White Balance

The March Technical Webinar speaker will be Brian Walton and the topic will be “Understanding White Balance”. The webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, March 23, 2021 at 6:30 pm.

This webinar explores how the knowledge of color temperature and white balance are fundamental skills in achieving your artistic vision in photography.  If you seek accurate representation or even creative color shifts, understanding  white balance adjustments allow you to control these factors.  These applications apply to every style and genre of photography. 

Beginner to more advanced concepts will be covered, including touching on why white balance adjustments alone isn’t always enough to reproduce color accurately.

The Technical Webinars will be hosted monthly by skilled Club members as well as guest speakers who are subject-matter experts on the various topics. They will be sharing expertise, tips, and knowledge for various photography and post-production techniques. Our aim is to increase your skill level and confidence with your photography and post-production.

Look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, March 23rd for the second Technical Webinar!
