Altering an Image and Critiquing.  We think we all had fun with this segment, so we will be featuring it at our Club Meetings.      Altering an Image:           Attached is an image that you can Alter any way you want (get creative). You can alter color, composition, add items, remove items or any other thing you can think of!  Don’t be intimidated; just TRY with whatever software you have (even Microsoft Paint!) and have a little fun with it.  After Altering just send back to me; you can do more than One!   We want your participation!Critiquing an Image:       Members may send me ONE image, each month, which they would like Critiqued (constructive comments only); these will be shown on the screen and the members will make their comments. These will be anonymous – no personal identification on the photograph.  This is fun and educational!  We suggest strongly that every member planning to attend participate in this opportunity to improve your photography and learn from others’ photos, to reap the benefits.

             VIDEOS:  We also will show videos of the April Theme  photos, alter image and critiques, Slide shows for the Busch Wildlife Field Trip and the Class on Lighting for Portraits will be, hopefully, at the May meeting. 

               QUESTIONS ANSWERED:   We will provide some time to answer questions on your Camera, Lenses, composition and Post Processing at the this meeting, so bring your questions and your suggestions for other presentations from our group of experienced photographers and other local experts.    Please, for your safety, with the increase in Covid we ask you to wear masks at our meeting if you feel more comfortable!

  • SLIDE SHOWS. We enjoy an interesting slide show, if you have one to share.  Should you need assistance in preparing your photographs to create a slide show, we can show you how it is done.
