Thursday 7 October – Presentation with Joe Houghton entitled “Mono Processing Live”
The October 7 presentation will be an interactive evening where Joe Houghton will edit members’ images live during the evening using Lightroom and possibly Silver FX Pro. We therefore need at least 12 members to each send 2 images to: firstname.lastname@example.org. The first image should be an original RAW file and the second should the same image that has been edited and converted to black and white as a final jpeg – this jpeg should ideally be an image that has been entered in a past PDI or print competition, although this isn’t compulsory. Joe will then apply his editing expertise to the original RAW file and compare his results to the members’ final images. Which hopefully will throw up some interesting comparisons, help members with their their post processing in the future and promote some good discussion.
It is also hand in for PDI Competition Round 1.
