12 members attended the 9/9 meeting; welcoming new members Dan Jares and Matt Finch (Lexmark employees).
We reviewed the finances (Vivian) and determined a $20 annual dues to cover the minimal expenses, website and domain. Members that did not pay cash will need to catch up by next meeting.
The new theme keywords are:
Photos for next meeting will be geared to these words.
We reviewed some awesome images
Proving that the camera isn't everything, Patrick and Lars provided some excellent photography using their smartphones. Matt brought in some great photos of the castle at Victoria beach and surfing images that evoke "elation".
We played around with Lightroom with a few raw files, using the gradient adjustment tool, spot healing tool and exporting to Photoshop for some "content aware fill".
We discussed the upcoming meeting October 2nd, and having Ron Radmer as a guest speaker. The Equine shoot on 10/4 requires some additional insurance, and the members in attendance will need to share that cost (current guestimated $80).
Look forward to seeing you in October!
