July 21 San Diego Photo Club Meeting – Improve Your Skills

Join us July 21 as we help our members improve their photography skills.  This meeting will feature 4 mini-presentations on topics selected by our members:

  • Hummingbird and Dragonfly photography (presented by Steve Cirone and Tom Applegate).  This is the season to photograph hummingbirds and dragonflies.  Steve and Tom will discuss the best strategies to get great results, and preview our August 20 outing at Santee Lakes to photograph dragonflies.
  • Local Lightroom Adjustments (presented by Alexander S. Kunz).  Everybody knows how to move sliders in Photoshop and Lightroom’s Adobe Camera Raw, but those are global adjustments.  They affect the entire image.  Alex will show you how it pays off to know how to make small local adjustments to make your images great.
  • Backup your photo data! (presented by Steve Ross).  Your images are your life.  Losing those images would be terrible.  Steve will talk about strategies to back up your images while keeping copies at home and away from your home.  Be ready!
  • Don’t just make images, make projects (presented by T.M. Schultze).  Individual images can be great, but what gives those images a true perspective are when they belong to a project.  Projects give your portfolio focus, a statement, and something for your public to understand.  There are an immense number of local photo projects you can make your own.
