August has ended, and so has another one of our monthly photo quests. The theme in August was “Night is Calling” and in the gallery below you find our member’s submissions. Thanks to everyone who took part, we hope you had fan & enjoy seeing other’s photos.
After the first part of our Lightroom workshop series 2018 in June, about organizing photos, we’re now looking at Developing Photos in Lightroom.
We’re working in Adobe Lightroom Classic CC – the most recent version of the desktop software, but most of what we’re covering will also apply to older versions of Lightroom of course, as well as Lightroom CC, the cloud and mobile device version of Lightroom. The workshop is for Lightroom users who do have a basic knowledge and understanding of the software.
Depending on where in San Diego you are, your days are either warm, hot, or torrid right now – but the nights are nice when temperatures drop, the skies are mostly clear, the coyotes are singing, the stars are out, and the Milky Way is beautifully visible in all of its glory in summer.
The August theme for our photo quest is Night is Calling – so let’s get out into the night!
The theme for our monthly photo quest in July was “Panoramas”. It’s vacation time so the turnout was a little bit lower than in previous photo quests, and we expected that – a wholehearted thanks to everyone who dedicated their time to contribute this month, nevertheless!
For our August activity, please join us at Santee Lakes for Dragonfly Photography with our president Steve Cirone. Dragonflies are active during the day – when we meet at 10 in the morning they’re still warming up and are a lot more static, that makes photographing them easier.
Just like in previous years, we’re using the summer months for our “Improve Your Skills” meeting, with a couple of short sessions in which the club’s own officers and members share knowledge, experience and insights. This year we have three sessions that cover a little bit of everything, as follows:
After our July meeting we will have our monthly photo activity and we’re visiting the Pacific Southwest Railway Museum in Campo. They have an impressive collection of steam locomotives, diesel engines, and much more! Admission to the museum is free, but they do rely on donations. Our monthly activities are open to the public and not restricted to club members. Hope to see you there!
It’s July and San Diego is baking in the heat of the summer’s first major heatwave – and as if that’s not enough, here’s the next monthly photo quest: Panoramas! 😀
Our June 2018 photo quest was “I See a Pattern Here!” and the submissions from our members did not disappoint. Thanks a lot everyone for taking part in the photo quest once more! Here is the gallery with all submitted photos:
