WDCC Next Meeting - Guest Speakers AV Presentation (John Smith & Jill Bunting)
Monday 18th June 2018 - 7:45pm - 9:30pm
Update from last meeting:
Hopefully you all got a little something from the last session on Colour Space and File Management - I'm sorry it got a bit rushed and I had to miss a few bits out to be able to finish by 10pm. At the very least, I hope you got to realise the importance of backups! I got to realise the importance of presentation timings rehearsals!
Also, following a suggestion that we provide a projector profile to club members for competition entries, I have spent a week trying to create a profile so far without success. Whilst it is clear that the laptop and the projector cannot display 100% of sRGB, it is still safest if you assign the sRGB colour profile to your images.
For those that are interested in the soft proofing feature of Lightroom that I demonstrated, further information can be found in this video by Julieanne Kost for Adobe Lightroom
I was intending to show you how to tag files in windows (not just in lightroom) and then how to use search facilities to locate your keyworded files easily and quickly (helpful if you have hundreds of gigabytes of images). I was also intending to demonstrate setting colour profiles using a number of comonly used software packages - so if you have questions please feel free to ask.
I was asked by a couple of people if I could provide the presentations I gave so here is a link to them on my OneDrive cloud storage! Just be aware that the presenter notes won't be as detailed as I spoke about on the night.
We are keen to utilise the skills and experience of club members to deliver talks to the club. They don't have to be full sessions like mine was, we can compose an evening of mixed talks with a few different speakers. If you are interested in giving a talk to the club let us know and we can develop your ideas for next years programme.

Meeting After Next: Club Competition 2 - "Number"
Monday 2nd July 2018 - 7:45pm - 9:30pm
Our second club competition of the year and the theme is "number". Your photograph can be on any subject you wish, colour or black and white, but a number must be a key composition item or focal point of your image.It should also be the actual number not multiple items (i.e. a sheep with the number 3 on it as the subject would meet the definition, but 3 plain sheep would not)
Points scored count towards the Photographer Of The Year competition.
Please see the current competition rules for information on how to size and name your images, and we also have some general tips, and advice on mounting your images.
Please note that images must be handed to the competition secretary Ian Sprott at the meeting before the competition (Monday 18th June), and digital images must be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org before midnight that same day.
