3rd October Technique Night – Photoshop & Elements

This night presents an opportunity to learn and develop your skills on Photoshop and elements. You can explore the power of Photoshop, with hands on practical advice on the following areas:

      • Raw Conversion,
      • Preparing Images for Exhibition
      • Using adjustment layers
      • HDR

Why not come along and develop your skills further.  Guidance will be provided by experienced members of the society. You could always bring your own laptop and or pictures with you to work on in the evening to reinforce your learning.

This will be a very hands on practical evening with members being asked to bring along their own laptops loaded if possible with either Photoshop CS5 or similar, Lightroom or Elements.  There will be three works stations  as follows,

  • Work Station 1 [Simon Pearce] – Basic RAW conversion [Colour Temperature, exposure, Recovery, brightness & contrast, Clarity, Vibrance, Saturation,
  • Work Station 2 [Simon Hickie] – Preparing images for exhibition/competition etc [Cloning, Cropping, Adding Borders, Resizing etc]
  • Work Station 3 [Tony Beginn] – Using Adjustment Layers [Levels, Curves, B&W Conversion, Shadows & highlights, sharpening etc]
  • Workstation 4 subject to Photomatics being available on a laptop  [John Madeley] has offered to demo HDR for the more experienced members.

Members are asked to bring along images they have taken, as these will be the images they will be working on.  There will be an opportunity for members to circulate around each workstation throughout the evening.

As normal the meeting will start at 7:30 pm at the Thomas Cook Memorial Hall, Melbourne.

We look forward to seeing you there.
