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.

Chichester Camera Club is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Tony Walsh LRPS

I am sorry to have to let members know of the death of Tony Walsh on Friday last. Tony, Sue Nash’s Dad, was a long-time Club member who, along with his wife, Alice, was an enthusiastic contributor to Club activities until his declining health made that impossible.

Sue is grateful for all the support members gave both her Dad and her as it became increasingly difficult for Tony as his dementia worsened. Tony had moved into residential care and valued the visits he had from Club friends. He had his 90th birthday earlier this year but sadly with lockdown making it impossible for his family to visit since March, although  Alice had been with him earlier on Friday and the family valued the care the home gave.

Our thoughts are with Alice, Sue, her sister and their families.

Club Flickr Activity

The Club has had a successful of re-start to using its CCC Flickr Group page, with a number of members linking in and submitting images over the last two weeks. The first Fortnightly Photo Theme ended with some good wrap-up thoughts from the guest commentator, Jan Davis.
The 2nd Fortnightly Photo Theme round, “Bloomin’ Marvelous”, is now open for members to submit floral-related images, ranging from garden scenes to still-life of flowers, blossoms and so forth. Ideally, the images are from this year.
A new thread has been posted, called Creative Challenge. This round is “Photography Imitates Art”. The idea is for photographers to interpret one or more known pieces of artwork into a photogrpah of their own. The original and the member’s creation should be shown side-by-side for viewers to appreciate.  Creations can be serious re-interpretations to parody.  
Both threads will run in parallel for the next two weeks. 
No image on these threads is being judged — it’s for all friendly enjoyment!
Everyone has the choice to participatie in either one or both of them, and to share more than one image. 
For anyone who has not yet joined us on the Club’s Flickr site, you are very welcome to participate regardless of skill level. We see this as a very useful image exhibiting platform for Club members, especially during this lockdown period.Our site’s admin. team are available to help with any IT questions.
