Event And Member Center
Mondays @ 1:30PM
The Black & White Special Interest Group is a weekly meeting of those club members who enjoy the special qualities of black & white (or more generally called “monochrome”) photography. Members bring their images for viewing and comments by the group. Discussions on editing techniques, as well as on composition and lighting are also a part of the meeting.
The question might be asked “Why are we interested in black and white images when even the basic point and shoot digital cameras can produce very good color photographs?” The answer is: there are some images which have more visual impact when rendered in black and white. These images are those which use the interplay between light and shadows to emphasize texture or shapes within the composition. An example is shown below
Typically, the photographs shown at our SIG have been produced as color images in a digital camera and converted to black and white using one or more of the popular photo editing software packages.
Wednesdays @ 9:30AM
A special interest group for those interested in Photoshop CS (version 5 or earlier) and in Lightroom. We study techniques that involve features found in CS and Lightroom that are not found in other photo processing tools. No need to sign up. Just come on in. You must be a member of the Green Valley Camera Club and GVR to attend this event.
In this Elements workshop, participants bring two or three photographs that they want improved on a flashdrive. Linda Gregory demonstrates various methods of enhancing the photographs using Elements. The participants are encouraged to contribute to this workshop by making their own suggestions. This workshop is for all levels of Elements users, from beginner through advanced. No need to register, just come in and join us! You must be a member in good standing of the Green Valley Camera Club to attend this class.
Fridays @ 9:30AM
This is a group that is interested in Digital Single Lens Reflex cameras. Normally it is a very informal however there likely will be, from time to time, special events by the group. These might include seminars on how to set your camera for maximum utility, field trips for specific topics, and maybe even some overnight field trips to better learn to use your camera and other equipment. No need to sign up, just come and join us! You must be a member of the Green Valley Camera Club and GVR to attend this event
Tuesdays @ 9:30AM
Please bring up to 5 photos that you have either worked on and feel are ready for printing or display OR that you want specific help with. The purpose of our discussions is to help members become more knowledgeable about the taking and post processing of their photos. Please try to bring the Exif data available for your photos (if possible). Our discussions are "Creative Criticism" sessions so we can learn from each other how to make all of our photos "BETTER"!! With more members returning every day, we wish to make this a productive group, so our members can grow in the field of photography!
