2021 Update no. 20 Becoming a Prize Winner

Covid-19 – Delta Alert Level 2

As we usually do in level 2, we will meet up as usual but with the relevant restrictions in place and no supper.  We will have the QR code for you to use at the door, along with sanitiser.  You can wear a mask if you wish and we will have the chairs spaced out for physical distancing.

Produce prize-winning images using layers – with Lindsay Gibbs

When: Tuesday 9 November 2021
Time: 7:30pm
Location: Hutt Valley Tramping Club
Topic: How to produce prize-winning images using layers

You asked for it and we are happy to supply!  For those of you with an interest in processing without using the adobe products: Lindsay will present an alternative to programs such as Adobe® Lightroom and Corel® Aftershot Pro.  He will show us how to extract and optimise the monochrome and colour components of an image, then once each part has been optimised the image is reassembled.

The “layers” image shows the steps involved. Moving counter-clockwise from the lower-left we see the original image, the monochrome component, the colour component, and the final image.

Lindsay Gibbs is:

Age … ancient
Dabbled with black and white photography in the early 1970’s
Joined Hutt Camera Club around 2002.
One of the first club members to adopt digital photography.
Past Committee Member and Competitions Secretary.
Successes include winning the Beginners trophy (2003), Intermediate trophy (2004), and the Advanced trophy (2008, 2009) using the above techniques.
