If you have Adobe’s Creative Cloud subscription, you may have noticed you had 2 versions of Lightroom included in your subscription. Until recently they were both designated as Lr. As the result of a recent Adobe update, the two Lightrooms are now more distinctive. There is Lightroom Classic designated as LrC and Lightroom Cloud designated as Lr.
There are some substantial differences between these applications so our own Jim Sykes will take us through the differences and give some pros and cons of using Lightroom Cloud (Lr).
Lightroom Classic is the version we use for Competition Night and Critiques. With the recent update there were a few changes to Lightroom Classic (LrC) that Jim will tell us about, also.
So join us online for a Zoom meeting Friday, July 24, 2020 at 7pm to learn more about Lr and LrC.
Jim will send out a Zoom invitation just prior to the meeting date.
Thank you to all the members who submitted entries for this photo contest. Our judge and Technical Night speaker, Mike Moats, did a quick critique on all the entries and then announced the 2nd and 1st place winners.
Note: the meeting was recorded so if you missed it is posted on our website.
Our 1st place winner is by Helga Jackson. She wins a lifetime membership to Mike Moats’ Macro Photo Club and a 13 X 19 print of her image from JRS Photo, Jim Sykes.
2nd place went to Karen Robinson! She will receive a 13 X 19 print of her image from JRS Photo, Jim Sykes.
Congratulations to our winners!
Thank you to all the members who participated.
A big thank you to Mike Moats for taking the time to judge the entries and to make some minor suggestions and changes to a few of the entries to illustrate what he thought would have been made them stronger images. Also, thank you to Mike for giving us the lifetime membership to his Macro Photo Club to give as a prize. Please take a look at Mike’s website and I encourage you to join his club and attend his educational offerings.
Thank you to Jim Sykes for providing the prints as prizes. Please contact Jim at JRS Photos for all your paper printing needs.
Let me know if you would like to have more contests like this that are outside our normal club competition/critique set up.
Stay well and see you at the next meeting, Friday, June 19, 2020 for our regular competition/critique night.
This Friday night is our monthly competition/critique night. The assigned subject is “Into the Distance”. (Show an interesting scene that is composed with a visually distinct vanishing point.)
Please submit your images by no later than midnight on Wednesday night May 13th. Due to scheduling requirements I need to be firm with this deadline in order to accommodate preparing the scoresheet and image galleries in advance of the meeting.
Topic: TBCC Competition Meeting
Time: May 15, 2020 07:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
To continue our learning and sharing during these difficult times, I am very happy to announce that we have booked Tony Sweet to give his talk on Infrared Photography at our June 22, 2020 Technical Night via Zoom.
“Coming from an artistic background as a professional jazz artist and professional close up magician (sleight of hand artist), Tony has always sought creative, deeply personal endeavors.
The transition from jazz artist to nature photographer was a seamless transition as both require an improvisational nature and an ability to adapt too quickly changing conditions.
Tony was named as a Nikon Legend Behind the Lens and has been published worldwide for over 35 years. He has authored 8 books, contributing to many others, co-produced an educational DVD series, and teaches and lectures throughout the US, Canada, Iceland, and Cuba.
Tony is co-owner, along with Susan Milestone, of their Visual Artistry Workshops Series and Creativity Seminars. Tony and Susan have also launched an online educational series, beginning with ProCritiques and One on One private sessions.
I took my very first online photography classes from Tony back around 2005! My first workshop was also with him and Susan in the mountains of Tennessee. He was teaching color nature photography but showed us some of his amazing infrared images! I was hooked and vowed to get a converted camera as soon as I could…. I know you will want to try this different and interesting way of seeing the world, after hearing Tony speak and seeing more of his images!
Please join us at our Zoom meeting on June 22, 2020, and learn from this internationally known photographer.
Jim will send the Zoom invitation out and post it on the website just prior to this meeting.
Looking forward to seeing all of you at the meeting.
