News & Events

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

Monday 12/4 at 7pm:  Projected Image Competition – Remnants  Two images per member. Assigned topic is "Remnants," which is also the theme of the 2018 Maine Photography Show.  "Remnants" generally means "small parts, members, or traces remaining. A remnant could also be a small surviving group, or even unsold or unused pieces of goods." Deadline for entries is midnight Wednesday, November 29.  When you are ready to submit your images, visit the PCC Upload Page.
Note: tonight is the last night to bring in prints for next week's Print Competition.
