Members Practical Session – Workflow – 9th November 2017

The next practical session will be covering the basic workflows from beyond capturing your pictures to processing them on your computer. Ian Pettit will walk briefly through the basic workflow that he uses, as an example and then we are going to split up into smaller groups. Bring your laptop, power cable, mouse and an example of one picture that you want to use.

We realise that you all use different software and versions, but we will try to help cover the following areas

  • Adobe Lightroom
  • Adobe Photoshop / RAW
  • Adobe Elements
  • Nikon View NX and View NXi
  • DXO
  • Fuji Wifi & Snapseed on iPad

We can’t promise to cover every operating systems / software versions permutations, but there is plenty of experience in the room, and the basic workflows remain basically the same.

New book, Kerry: The Beautiful Kingdom

Melbourne Photographic Society has it’s first published author – John Wesson!

Most will know that John has a tendency to disappear for extended periods and contrary to popular belief, his time spent in Ireland isn’t always inside the local pub. His first book, Kerry: The Beautiful Kingdom is clear evidence of his love and extensive travels around County Kerry.

More than just a picture book, the stunning photos of the people, landscape and wildlife of Kerry are accompanied by interesting captions. These not only detail the history of Kerry, but offer a wealth of facts for anyone wanting to visit.

Well done John on such a great first book, we look forward to book number two!

If you’d like to buy a copy it’s available on Amazon, click here. You never know he might even sign it for you!

You can read the story behind the book in an interesting article featured on The Irish Times website.
