First, I was corrected on last week's notes about John's experience with Oak Color. The $6 was for the mounting only.
For this meeting I had hoped for more people to bring in their photos from the LPA competition and some experts to discuss those photos. We didn't get the photos but Dennis Goodno joined us and provided his expert opinions on everything from digital formats to sizing photos to the benefits of joining LPA. Besides Dennis we had four members and three future members. In all we discussed different types of cameras, lenses, Photoshop and Elements (of course), tutoring, the AV Fair, and abstract photos.
Dennis recommended the weekly video tutorials on Radiant Vista (http://www.radiantvista.com/workbench) as well as the web sites Luminous Landscape (http://www.luminous-landscape.com/tutorials/) and Digital Photography Review (http://www.dpreview.com/).
With the AV Fair fast approaching now is a good time to start putting together those photos for that competition.
If you have questions about the competition, how to improve your photos, or anything else about photography this forum is a good opportunity to discuss it all.
We meet each Friday at Bianco's Cafe at the South end of the Lancaster Market Place, behind and across the street from Movies 12.
The core times are from 7 to 8 PM but there's typically someone there from 6:30 to at least 8:30.
We'll keep the light on for you.
