On Wednesdays, we do whatever takes our fancy. The agenda is what we make it. This is your club, so please feel free to ask and make suggestions!
David Roberts cannot attend this session, so I will be in ‘the chair’. What do you want me to cover? Here are some suggested areas:
1. Nigel has asked me to do ‘something’ on Lightroom, as there seems to be much interest in this software package. I know my way around Lightroom, but I must admit I don’t actually use it. However; I will bring along a 2.3GB Video Tutorial that will answer any questions!
2. Anthony has asked me to explain how to use the Nik Software plug-ins, with Photoshop. (They work with Lightroom, Photoshop, Elements, Aperture and Capture NX.) I really know my way around these plug-ins, they are suburb! But these are not installed on our camera club computer, so I will have to bring my laptop in order to demonstrate…
BUT I fully realise that many members do not have Photoshop or Lightroom or Elements. Never mind the Nik Software plug-ins that cost almost as much as Elements! (BTW Elements, IMHO does almost everything that Photoshop and Lightroom do!)
And I am reminded that many months ago a member asked if the Wednesday Club was becoming a computer club! It was a wake up call that made us concentrate on asking for photos on USB sticks, and giving feedback. Which brings me to the third suggestion-
3. A number of members have asked me to fully explain what I meant by saying “crop for composition, with the zoom lens” from Friday’s talk. Others have asked me to give the talk about basic composition as either they, missed it or, simply wanted to hear it again.
Up to you! It is your club, all you have to do is ask.
(BTW, look at the top right to the cartoon balloon. It will let you know if there are any comments or replies to any post.)
