Zoom Digital imaging group tuesday 25th january

This month Pete Bamforth is going to show us how he produces his wonderful large images. This promises to be a great evening with a great deal of excellent advice so please do join us on Zoom on the link below.

I have also had one suggestion for a talk on converting an image to Black and White but need other thoughts for the future – this group works best with your ideas. We are very lucky in the club to have a great many members who are only too willing to offer advice if asked so suggestions please!

Lightroom Zoom workshop Friday 21st january 9.30 am

Please note the change of time. Sorry I got double booked. For those of us who have just purchased Topaz DeNoise and Sharpen A1 Jeff has agreed to have a look at them and particularly using masks within them.

I keep also hoping that some of you will bring along (or send) images that you have got stuck with what to do or how to do it in Lightroom – maybe from this week’s Print Group. If you want to send them rather than share your screen then here’s the email address digitalgroup@chichestercameraclub.org.uk

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

Digital Group on Zoom Tuesday 23rd november at 7.30

This month Lorna Brown and Lynne Owen are going to show us how they use Lightroom and Photoshop to produce their images. They have very different approaches to in using masks in the artistic development.

We would still like some ideas from members for future meetings. One such idea is the conversion to black and white but other ideas would be lovely.

Lightroom zoom workshop thursday 18th November 9.30 am

I thought it would be useful to look at the latest Lightroom update where they have vastly improved the mask tools. There are various videos on Youtube which are well worth looking at beforehand – I followed Dave Abbott’s suggestion of “Photoshop Cafe”.

If you would like any comment / help with any of you images either send the file to me at digitalgroup@chichestercameraclub.org.uk by Wednesday or be prepared to share your screen in Lightroom.

Lightroom Workshop thursday 21st October

I am starting a workshop for Lightroom.  The aim is to try to help members to develop their skills and to hopefully sort out problems between us.  The idea is certainly not to give a series of talks on Lightroom but to provide practical help where it is needed. The workshops will run on the 3rd Thursday of each month starting at 9.30am for about an hour.

A recording of the workshop from Thursday 21st October is now on the website in Digital Imaging /recordings/21-22 where there are also some notes that I had written to go with the recording.

Notes on workshop

If you have any suggestions for next month or any images that you would like to ‘improve’ in Lightroom but haven’t really found out how please let me know. I don’t promise to know but its useful to discuss ideas with others!

The workshops will run on the 3rd Thursday of each month starting at 9.30am for about an hour.

I have been asked to start with how I use Lightroom to catalogue my images and then use keywords and smart collections to find them.  This month we will start at 9.15 a.m.

Digital group meeting Tuesday 26th October 7.30 pm -9.30 pm

Sheila Tester will be showing us how she uses Lightroom particularly to process her images. Although I have asked her to aim her talk particularly at less experienced members I have never come away from one of her talks without learning something new!In November it is hoped that Lynne and Lorna will give talks on how they produce their very individual images.Topic: Digital Imaging

Digital Group ZOOM Meeting September 28 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

The first digital imaging group meeting will be carried out using Zoom. Given the huge range of skills in the club, designing a programme to suit everybody is going to be a challenge, so I thought we would kick off this year by going back to first principles and providing a basic overview of what Digital Processing is all about. So we will be looking at why we need to process our images, file formats and what software is available.

The second part is designed to help new members and people not confident in uploading images for competitions. This part will cover the basics of preparing images for our competitions and how to upload them to PhotoComp. Also covering how to change images in PhotoComp, set the title correctly etc.

Moving forwards, I would like feedback from attendees and members as to what topics they would like to see covered for further sessions in the year. I am also looking for volunteers to present topics.

This will be a Zoom meeting, the details are:

Digital Group Meeting September 28 7:30pm

The kickoff meeting for the 2021-22 season will be on the 28th September at 19:30 as a Zoom meeting.

The first meeting will be covering the very basics of preparing your images for club competitions and exhibitions, so we will be covering cropping, exporting and uploading to PhotoComp. The meeting will be especially targeted towards new members, or members that have not entered competitions before, but given the multitude of ways to do this, there is always something to pick up.

As a minimum we will cover exporting with:

  • LightRoom
  • Photoshop/Bridge
  • Affinity Photo
  • Darktable

We will also run through how to upload your images to PhotoComp, how to set your image titles and correct or replace entries and how to keep a record of what you have entered.

I would also like to hear from all members about topics they would like to be covered this season and which software they want to understand or learn about.

Please email me at: digitalgroup@chichestercameraclub.org.uk with your ideas. Also, let me know if you want to be on the group mailing list.
