Club Meeting 24.10.13

I appears that the Photoshop Workshop on Tuesday proved to be helpful to the members who attended, I based it on making a composite from three images and a schedule which showed a step by step procedure which covered using most of the tools that one could practice on in order to improve your own images.

If you would like to have a copy of this exercise, send me an e mail and I will prepare a CD which you can have at the next meeting.

We have started setting out the Syllabus for 2014/15 – do you have any ideas for subjects or speakers? If you have an idea please send me an e mail.

The prints you handed in for the Colour Print Comp. have been passed to the judge and we will not be able to see them again until they are judged on 7th Nov.

The Kirkcaldy CC Comp is on 11th Nov – therefore there will not be time to decide on the ones that we want to take to for the comp.

It is therefore ESSENTIAL that I get digital copies via e mail from all members who put a print in but has not already let me have a copy

Another good reason was that I said that I would get all images in and Jennifer doubted this and bet me 10p – I am a poor loser – so please let me have your image by this coming weekend at the latest.

Many thanks to Lynn and Martin who last night gave us an insight into how they have developed their interest in photography and the way they have used their imagination to create something different, with Lynn’s stacked stones on the beach and the time lapse images of the ‘two faces’ of Martin. Their development of their skills of using Photoshop could be seen with the ‘before & after’ images and how they have taken on board comments from judges and made the improvements.

Next week

We have a ‘star’ speaker – Horst Meyerdierks from the Royal Observatory Edinburgh telling us about ‘Astrophotography’ – Steven Beard suggested this, therefore if you have any work colleges who could give us a talk please let me know.
