1 — Local members who attended the SDA conference in San Antonio in early June will share their learnings and inspiration from the speakers, gallery tours, and workshops.
2 — Using Adobe Lightroom, Photographer Craig Rowley will give a demo on “Evaluating Art Color and Tone Digitally”. Let’s see how the impact of visual art changes as we vary both its tonal (e.g. dynamic range, black point, white point, exposure, contrast) and color (e.g. saturation, color contrast) characteristics in real time. Please send some sample images of your own work for use or any other art image that you might find interesting to him by clicking HERE. (Note: this will not be a tutorial on Lightroom or Photoshop.)
3 — Please bring any recent work or inspiration to share as well as any ideas for future programs.
Bring your brown bag lunch.
