Mike Harrison will talk in general terms (i.e. with minimal reference to software) about image post- processing.

May 1st – How I process my photos

Four short talks by members on how they process their images, what software they use, and what they do with the processed images.

June 5th – Critique

A two-part evening.

The first part will be a critique focused on framing or cropping. The idea is to show various versions of one image to explore how framing or cropping affects the final image. Either framed differently in camera or cropped differently in post-processing or an original image and then the crop applied.

The second part will be a review of the urban architecture challenge images, up to 3 images per member.

July 3rd – Photo walk and pub.

An evening walk around Pamber Forest with our cameras followed by a chat over a drink in a nearby pub. Details to be confirmed nearer the time.
