June 8 Photo Excursion

Jack Mcilnay, program host

  • 7:00-8:00
    Photo shoot around Palmer Lake; bring your photo gear

  • 8:00-9:00
    What did you find?
    How did you approached your subjects?

Field trips have been requested by some of the members.  One that has been suggested is an early morning photo shoot at the Paint Mines just south of Calhan.  We haven’t yet set up a time, but please let us know if you’re interested.

Visits to galleries have been proposed.  Are you interested in all-day or multiple day field trips?  We have some ideas for those as well.

It is spring-time in the Rockies, and time to bring a fresh look to the PD Photographers Group.

The overall theme that we will be pursuing is how to take more artistic photos.  In fact, what is meant by artistry in photography?  What is a photographic style, and how can I develop my own?

For the future, we are scheduling speakers/presenters for PDP meetings. Presenters will access the broad range of talent within our group as well as guest presenters from outside the local group.

Some of the topics that are being considered are:

— Photography as art.
— Creative uses of Lightroom; expanded feature set of the latest version.
— Lightroom and Photoshop plug-ins, such as Nik and OnOne software.
— Preparing your image file for printing.  (We’ll do this later in the year in preparation for next year’s exhibit)
— Matting and framing your print in preparation for gallery hanging. (Also later in the year)
