Monday November 24th

Twin City Camera Club's

Program Night
 

Ted Post will present a program with several short videos about how to enhance photos and fix common problems.

What we plan on doing is viewing one of the videos and then take a little time discussing it.  Then we'll select another video and do it again.  The videos are short, mostly 5 minutes in length, some a few minutes longer.  Since we won't have time to see them all, It will be up to the group to pick which ones we want to see.  

Here are just a few of the topics: Quick color cast fix; How to fix blah clouds; How to brighten dark shadows; How to make water white; Cool desaturation method; Taming wild colors and How to fix blown highlights.

Black & White

Judy Walker - Puffy Thing

"Puffy Thing" is a "light painting" of a cool weed that grows by my house.  Taken with a Canon 60D with Canon100mm Macro lens, on a tripod, ISO 100, shutter speed 30 seconds, aperture 14, white balance 10,000K, then of course illuminated with a pen light the way Dennis taught us. <Thanks to Dennis- I have had a lot of fun with light painting :)

It was converted to B&W using a desaturation layer, then a brightness/contrast layer was added layer to brighten it just a little bit and increase contrast.  Then cropped and done.

These photos are special, because they are chosen by the TCCC members themselves.
Starting with March 2013, we are asking the members to select what they consider the best "Photo of the Month", a Color and a Black and White photograph, chosen from the Prints and Digital Slides Judged to be Honors in that months competition.

Which one would you pick?

Go to the Honor Image Galleries and see which ones you pick as the best, would these be your selections?
