February 12th Editing Group Meeting

Workshop: Inserting a new sky in a photo

I have found a way of inserting a new sky in an image with trees and foliage.

I am working on a crib sheet regarding this.

2016 Calendar.

Please remember: We want a selection of all year round Photos – To be judged in June.

No matters arising?

10.15 am. Denise presented the satisfactory statement of our group accounts.

With a round of members applause Clive thanked Denise for all the work involved.

10. 25. Today’s workshop:

Editing of three selected demonstration photos, all with various composition problems.

With grateful thanks we had a good response to this exercise with eight members taking part.

All edited photos were requested to be on a USB memory stick thus enabling the images to be presented on the screen for better viewing (DPIs - Digital Presented Images) to be critiqued by Bob and myself.

Bob and I were quietly pleased by the variations of member’s skills of editing and the enhancing of the same photo. e.g. Artistic, landscape, portrait, letter box, cloning and cropping, all with good results.

Through this exercise we found that we will have to demonstrate how to correct converging verticals, barrel distortion and the editing of selections.

With approximately 30 minutes to spare Clive demonstrated different ways of correcting converging verticals and the straitening of horizons.

12.00 pm. Clive closed the meeting thanking members for their attendance and input.

Keep Clicking.
