Applied Photography SIG – May 2017

When: Tuesday, May 2, 2017 @ 7:00pm
Where: Drummond Twsp Hall, 1920 Drummond Concession 7

TWO COMPONENTS OF LIGHT - QUALITY & QUANTITY
and
OFF CAMERA FLASH
with Paul Grant

Paul will start off the evening with a short presentation on Two of the Components of Light - Quality and Quantity. This, of course, applies to all types of photography and lighting. Then he will cover how to use off camera flash, the equipment required and how to manage ambient and flash exposure. This will be followed by a photo session using one off camera flash to demonstrate the two components (quality and quantity) discussed in the presentation. Paul plans on shooting tethered so images will be visible on the screen. We have no doubt that you will find Paul’s presentation informative and very helpful in creating enlightened images.

Critiquing SIG – April 2017

When: Tuesday 18 April 2017 7:00–9:00 pm
Where: Drummond Township Hall, 1920 Drummond Concession 7

Theme: Night Photography

Night photography refers to photographs taken outdoors between dusk and dawn. Night photographers generally have a choice between using artificial light and using a long exposure, exposing the scene for seconds, minutes, and even hours in order to give the film or digital sensor enough time to capture a usable image.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Digital Directions SIG – April 2017

When: Tuesday April 11, 2017, 7:00 PM
Where: McMartin House (Corner Gore & Harvey)

Finally, the weather should be nice enough for us to have a meeting. The topic for this month will be what we missed last month and described below.

In preparation for the May meeting where Craig Greenwood will be giving an overview of Portrait Professional, he has asked if some members have some portrait pictures that they would like him to process. If so please bring them on a thumb drive to the April Digital Directions meeting or email him your picture.

Please send them in raw (DNG) or TIFF and unprocessed.

Topic: Cloning and Healing Tools

When it comes to cloning or healing areas of our pictures, there are some tools we habitually use. However there are a number of them that may not be visible which provide more subtle ways to use them.

Our own Gordon Wolford will be demonstrating the various Cloning and Healing tools in photoshop as well as reviewing the Content Aware tools.

Before & After Pictures

We will show the before and after pictures that were missed last meeting but will accept new ones for this month as well.
Please send your before and after pictures to Len Modderman (modderman52@gmail.com) by Tuesday April 11, no later than noon. We no longer will accept pictures on a memory stick.

What's New
Please bring and or share any new information about processing or photography in general.
As well if you have any questions about processing, don't be shy and ask. Together we can find the answer.

Looking forward to seeing you all and hope the weather is cooperative.

Cheers

BLACK & WHITE PHOTOGRAPHY with Chris Crain

We have all seen those stunning Black & White images that make us take a step back to admire the impact the photo has on us. But they lead us to ask a few questions - Why is it that some images make an outstanding Black & White photo while others are just so-so? Are their certain subjects that translate better than others? What program works well for editing a photo to black and white? Chris Crain (one of our members) will be discussing Black and White Photography on Tuesday evening. He will be addressing these questions, comparing images in colour and black and white, along with how to edit a black and white image using Nik Software’s Silver Efex plugin. We are sure that you will find this an interesting and helpful presentation.

SHARE YOUR IMAGES

Continuing with the Black & White theme we ask that you send us your own B&W photo and if you would like to include the colour version of it please do. Please send them to Linda by noon on Tuesday, April 4th.
