We are going to have the pleasure of hearing Steve Rose speak about the workflow involved in his incredible photographs. Depending on the length of Steve's presentation, we’ll try to cover some or all of the following:
The topics for this month's challenge are "Glass," "Fruit" or "Glass & Fruit." Your images can be anything to do with glass, anything to do with fruit, or, if you're really ambitious, you can create an image that incorporates both glass and fruit. It is not mandatory that you have both glass and fruit in your images.
I have created a page with some YouTube videos that will give you suggestions for this month's challenge.
CHANGE TO THE MONTHLY CHALLENGE
We've been spending a lot of time on the monthly challenge so I am tweaking this part of the meeting. Instead of critiquing all of the posted images, we are going to choose one image as the main focus of the critique. This will hopefully move things along a little faster and we can have time for other things, such as the HDR presentation which I've had to postpone twice now.
TIPS & TRICKS
Rafael Payen is going to walk us through the technique(s) he used to create his "Around the House" photo.
PRESENTATION ON OPEN-SOURCE HDR
Time permitting, I will illustrate the use of Luminance HDR, Picturenaut and Photomatix.
Looking forward to seeing everyone on February 28th.
