Discover Lightroom

(31)Discover Lightroom is a new 6½ hour video workshop series that will teach you all you need to know about Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. Whether you’ve never used Lightroom before and wonder if you should be using it, or you’re an old hand and want to sharpen your skils, this workshop might be just what you need.

It is presented by Chris Marquardt, presenter of Tips From the Top Floor, the Internet’s longest-running photography podcast. Chris is a German professional photographer who presents workshops in German in his home country and in English in the UK and USA. He is also the driving force behind the Everest Trek, the world’s highest photography workshop.

Head on over to Discover Lightroom where you can read more about the workshop and view some sample chapters.

The Arcanum

Arcanum-blueThe Arcanum is brought to us by Trey Ratcliff of Stuck in Customs and Stuck on Earth fame. It uses the traditional master and apprentice approach to learning creative arts, but adds a twist. No longer do a master and his apprentices have to be together in the same place; The Arcanum uses technology to facilitate interaction between a master and his apprentices wherever they may be on the globe. Visit The Arcanum and view the video preview then read the rest if you’re interested. Once you’ve viewed the video you might have some questions, like Do I need Google Glass? or How much does it cost for me as an Apprentice?, and you can find answers to these and other questions in the Frequently Asked Questions.

Overberg Photo Workshop

It seems that an article was published in Die Burger suggesting that Helderberg Photographic Society are hosting a photographic workship in the Overberg in late October but this is incorrect. Although JJ van Heerden and Wicus Leeuwner are members of our club they host these workshops independently.

Information about the workshop can be found on their Photographic Workshops SA site.

Upcoming Workshops

Are you interested in learning something new? Here’s a list of the workshops being offered in February by the Cape Photographic Company.

Report: Evaluation Meeting 13th Jan.2010

At least 50 people turned up for our first meeting of the year … it was great to see old friends, and to meet new ones!  Several folk have applied and paid for membership – we welcome you all and hope you will enjoy being part of this vibrant group of photographers!  Susan and Harry are back here again from France, and Nicole is back after her ‘Artist in Residence’ sojourn in Paris.  Bernard, as our new Chairman, started off with a number of notices, and Paddy and Irmel informed us of projected plans for outings and audio-visual workshops.  A number of prints came up for Evaluation – Nicole and Ken Woods doing the honours. There were many digital images submitted -the quality of work was excellent, and we hope to see this standard following through into this new year. Members seem to be experimenting more and gaining good results – keep it up!

After tea Steve Crane gave a short talk on two aspects of Photoshop – changing digital images into Black and White; and changing a particular part of a B&W image into colour.  Links to these techniques can be found here.

Details of the outings on 23rd January (US ‘Jool’) and 30th January (Full Moon) will be sent to members by e-mail.

Next month’s set subject is ‘Candy/Sweets’ – give it a try – you’ll be amazed at how creative you can be!
