Long Time No See

June 28, 2018

I discovered today that this old blog I ran nearly a decade ago is still around.

Now I should determine whether there’s something new related to photography worth doing here!

September APW Meetup Update: 3 Shot Critique / Depth of Field Tutorial


THe "new" Sanyo projector got good marks for color and brilliance rendition at the September meetup, and I should be getting a color calibrator from DataColor to review before the October meet.

This month we’ll be doing our "Three shot critique," If you’d like to work with a theme, try "The Color of Autumn." What colors does the fall evoke for you? Scarlet leaves? Orange pumpkins? Red apples at a farm stand? How about an amber glass of ale at an Octoberfest? Remember, it’s going to be cold soon and you’ll want to be shooting indoors…so get out and enjoy the cool weather.

You don’t have to shoot in the theme, though. Feel free to choose your own.

I’ll be talking a little bit about workflow before the critique, but the important thing to remember is to keep your original image files untouched. Always make copies of them before making changes. Consider them your "negatives" and protect them for the future. We’ll also talk about RAW v JPGs.

Let’s get those photos in by Sunday, October 25th, the end of the weekend before the meetup.
