Last Meeting

Wow, what a turn up to our first meeting of term 3. It was good to see so many people.

We had to resort to Plan 'B' as our guest speaker, David, had to cancel, due to medical problems. We wish David all the best and hope he makes a speedy recovery. So, we started off looking at how to convert photos into paintings.

Turn this
Into this
Or this
Into this
All with the help of NIK Software HDR Efex Pro 2 which is now a stand alone program to turn ordinary photos into High Definition Range (HDR) photos. For more information on HDR Efex Pro 2, CLICK HERE

Then Diane talked about getting off automatic settings on our cameras. The topic was: 'Take The Plunge - Get Off Automatic'.

The lesson notes are now on the side bar under 'tips on photography' of this blog.

So, now it's over to you to try it out. Send us 4 photos for a slideshow at the next meeting. Two showing different Depth of Field and two showing different motion, blurred and frozen. Use manual or semi-manual settings, in your submissions, tell us how you did each shot.

Some shots from the last meeting:
