At the second meeting of the developers group, we first of all reviewed some of the results of the exercises set at the last meeting. This generated some good debate and understanding by the participants. That was followed by a session on basic manipulation of an image in Lightroom. The group were shown how to import images into Lightroom, the function of a range of manipulation tools and then an actual manipulation of an original image to a completed image using its Lightroom history. It proved to be very successful raising a lot of questions and discussion.
As an exercise, the group were tasked to select one of their own images, undertake some Lightroom work on the image and to bring a print of the original image, the completed image and a screen shot of the history to the next meeting in November for discussion.
Details of the slides used in the session will be posted here at a later date for all to see. (This is because I haven’t worked out how to do a link yet).
Please note that the next meeting of the developers group will be held at Tangmere on Wednesday 21st November not Monday the 19th.
At this meeting we will have representatives from the London Camera Exchange and Fotospeed. They will be doing sessions on camera types and printing and paper types so I hope as many group members as possible can attend.
The first meeting of the Developers Group was held on 17th September at which the first half of the evening covered a presentation on Getting Control of Your Camera and the second half on tips for taking landscape and wildlife photos. Participants were set exercises at the end of the evening to help reinforce the key learning points. For those Club class members who were unable to make the first meeting but who are intending to attend the next meeting on 15th October it would be useful to browse some of the key slides shown
The first meeting of the Developers Group will be held at 7:30pm on Monday 17th September in the Small Hall at Tangmere Village Centre. The Developers group is provided exclusively for Club class members and provides an opportunity for inexperienced photographers to get to grips with the basics of photography. At our first meeting we will cover how to take control of your camera through the understanding of shutter speed, aperture and ISO and the inter-relationship between them. In the second half there will be tips on taking pictures of landscapes and wildlife. Pictures will be on show during the evening to illustrate the key elements being covered and at the end of the session participants will be offered a series of fun photographic exercises designed to reinforce the points learned.
