Monday 11/20 at 7pm: Skill Development: Demonstrations in Lightroom and Photoshop Sandra Miner will show in Lightroom how to merge several individual photos to create a panorama. She will edit the pano inside LR and then open it in Photoshop and process it further utilizing available Topaz plugins to make enhancements. Sandy will also demonstrate creating a border/mat using a Photoshop action created by a PCC member last year. She will also demonstrate how to create a Photoshop action to save repetitive steps. If time permits, Sandy will demonstrate creating motion blur with a moving object (a running person or a fast moving snowmobile), using multiple layers and then adding additional elements to enhance the image. Knapp Hudson will review the new features in Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw, especially the improvements for luminosity masking.
Monday 11/27 at 7pm: Guest Speaker: Peter Ralston Widely published pro photographer Peter Ralston will be sharing almost 40 years of images from along the coast and islands of Maine. Peter is the Juror for the 2018 Maine Photography Show. Visit www.ralstongallery.com
