Print Group – 14 September 2021

For the first time since 10 Mar 20, the Print Group meets in the Tangmere Village Centre with our usual mix of work in progress through to favourite prints brought along to share.  

Although there are no  large print competitions until next year, the small print competition is still in the programme and the North Mundham exhibition will need preparation during the autumn.  So it’s never too early to get your thinking caps on and prepare some prints.

We meet at 7.15 for a 7.30pm start in the small hall at Tangmere Village Centre, with a £3 charge for Club Members (£4 non-members).

Print group Meetings – your Views

As you know it has been decided to continue Club Thursday meetings via Zoom up to Christmas, a decision made in response to Members’ preferences. Zoom has certainly been a great way for our programme to carry on during these weird times and some of our interests have been at least as well served this way as in physical meetings.

However, the Print Group by it’s very nature means we really need to see the physical prints – prints are just different to PDIs and although we’ve coped on Zoom it is no substitute for the real thing.

As the group meets in the small hall, is limited in the numbers attending so space is not restricted and the hall can be easily ventilated, I am happy to run the meetings physically as I believe this is the more productive course for this group if members agree.

Before I confirm that however I do need to know how members feel – both those who have been regular attenders over past year but also those who might be thinking of entering print competitions or just enjoy the printing process.

Digital Imaging Group Meeting – 27 April 2021

Now for something different from the Digital Imaging Group.  Rather than the usual Adobe hegemony we have a run through of Capture One demonstrated by our own Jan Davis.

Capture One is a professional-grade image editing application from Danish high-end digital photography equipment and software specialists Phase One,  developed to cater for over 500 cameras and has become very popular amongst professional photographers.

Jan will give an overview of the latest features which make it even more useful in post production on RAW files (non destructive), reducing to a minimum the need to use Adobe CC.

Digital Imaging Group 23 February 2021 Meeting Tutorials

Our Group meeting on this occasion was devoted to creating Triptychs and Panels in various software applications. The main purpose for doing so was to enable club members to prepare to the forthcoming Triptych competition and also anticipating entries for the Spring Exhibition. The videos of the tutorials can be found as shown below:

Digital Imaging Group Meeting – 23 February 2021

In anticipation of the Triptych PDI Competition taking place in March [a replacement for the usual print panel competition] this session will mainly be devoted to how you can set up Triptychs in Lightroom, Photoshop, Affinity and possibly Capture One.  So hopefully something for everyone.

Digital Imaging Group – 24 November 2020 Tutorials

At the Digital Imaging Group we examined in depth the new Colour Grading tool recently released by Adobe for Lightroom and Photoshop [via Adobe Camera RAW – ACR]. We viewed 2 videos by Julieann Kost and the other by Colin Smith [Photoshop Cafe]. Some attendees had also viewed other tutorials and links to these are also given below:

Julieanne Kost – Color Grading in Lightroom Classic

Colin Smith [Photoshop Cafe] – Next Level COLOR grading in Photoshop 2021

Other Tutorials recommended by members:

Lightroom is Getting Advanced Color Grading

A video about colour grading and colour theory by Joanna Kustra.  Although she uses Photoshop and Lightroom this is using split toning rather than the new Colour Grading feature and it is more a tutorial about how to use colours.

Here also is the link to the Affinity Revolution about transferring colour grading from one photo to another.  

This is a link to a video similar to the ones you showed this evening.
