Lightroom workshop thursday 21st October 9.15 am – 10.30 am

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.

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.

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.
