Tonight’s Meeting (30 June). 7pm. Haven Arms.
Because COVID restrictions are still with us, and therefore we still need to exercise social distancing and groups of six and no mixing of tables, then the meeting will be a bit of a hodgepodge, but concentrating on two practical issues.
Editing. We’ll look at some of the issues raised on our Facebook Group page recently. You can opt to bring your own laptop with relevant software loaded. Whilst no one is allowed to assist you (i.e. touch or handle) your own equipment or sit next to you as normally (unless in your bubble), it will be possible for members using the same software to offer verbal guidance on issues.
Settings. Got issues questions about your camera or other kit? Using members’ knowledge and the internet I hope we can help you resolve these.
As silly as it sounds, whilst sat in the same room we can use our laptops and the internet to chat with each other and share useful information with each other.
Business items include the Photography Competition, managing next week’s lighting session, and our programme of meetings, trips, etc.
#4 New Photo Editing Challenge
Hedon Viewfinders – New Editing Challenge Number FOUR – All photographers invited to have a go.
We present this basic and simple starting image (JPG) for you below. We invite you to download it, edit it how you wish and with whatever editing programme you’ve got. You might want to crop or frame and consider composition; maybe saturate or desaturate the colours. A monochrome perhaps? Lighten or darken, add clarity or blur. Create an abstract, painterly or traditional image. The choice is up to you!
Send in your re-edited photo with your “How I did it!” information, and we will present all the results in a gallery next Wednesday 7 July. Send us your re-edit by 10pm Tuesday 6 July 2021.
We want this to be instructive for beginners, and a chance to experiment for the more experienced amongst you. So please join in and have a go!
Download your starting JPG image here. Click and then right-click to download the image.
Include your name and new image title, include your “How I Did it!” information and tell us what program you used
