Members Night - Image Editing Challenge (7:00 PM EST)
Our First Members night is an Editing Challenge open to the whole club. The photos to be edited are on Google Drive using this link: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/15g4DtG3cGC76g62i9yx1mE3jvTk-jS78. All you have to do is to download them and have some creative fun.  Four photographs have been selected for you to try out your editing skills. It does not matter if you have not done a lot of editing, this is a good time to get more familiar with the editor you already have. You do not need to have Lightroom or Photoshop. Even basic tools like Mac's 'Photos'  and Windows 'Photos' will give you some editing opportunities. The main thing is to try it.  You can edit as many of the images as you want - all four or 1, 2 or 3. If you have done two edits on one image that are pretty different you can send both of them. Depending on the numbers we will try to show all of the edited images.  The edited images have no constraints, so you can make them any size or shape you want. They can be framed or, if you want to do a composite the components may come off the internet. Of course, it is better if you use your own images but if you want to have a witch or a unicorn in your image then it is certainly acceptable to download one. On January 14, 2021, we will be showing the original and the edited images.  When you finish your edit(s) please send it/them to me, Maureen McCormack,  at: mccormam1@gmail.com, and if the file is too large for email, then use WeTransfer.com.  Please send it as a .jpg or .tiff file We will be asking those members that do download the images to do a brief explanation of their edits. What software was used, adjustments, the approach you took to come up with the final results.  The best part of the edit groups is where we get to see what others have done with the same photograph. The final images often are so different. So please participate! Have fun with it. Link to the four images: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/15g4DtG3cGC
Intermediate Lightroom (10:00 AM EST)
Building on the Beginners Workshop for Lightroom Classic CC,  Bill Niessen and Marion Buccella take a little deeper dive into using Lightroom with developing a consistent workflow for storing, finding and editing images in mind. Geared to club shooters and users who have been using the program for a while but maybe not to its full potential. We’ll cover information on cataloging images, using the develop module, and other tools within Lightroom. The workshop is in 2x 2hour sessions.  One in the morning and one in the afternoon after lunch.  This will be a virtual event using Zoom meeting software and you will need a recent version of LrC to follow along. Running zoom on a second device or dual screens are helpful to follow along.   The fee for the workshop will be $35/person for members and is non-refundable unless the event is cancelled.  You will receive an email with payment instructions within the next few days after registering.  Note that at the current time, this workshop is for members only.
"Seasons of Algonquin, a Photography Journey" with Follow me North (7:00 PM EST)
"On the 125th anniversary of Algonquin Park, Jesse and Susan journeyed to Algonquin for their first date. The pair have been inseparable since, moving to the Lake of Bays area, and continue to create their brand “Follow Me North” sharing their passion of photography with landscape and wildlife admirers near and far. Jesse and Susan’s talk will take you on a journey through Canada’s oldest and largest Provincial Park throughout the seasons, featuring the vast landscapes and captivating inhabitants that this majestic land has to offer. Susan comes from a background in print journalism, creative production (500px, Stocksy United, Shutterstock Custom), gallery management and commercial photography - producing several catalogue raisonnés for artists across the U.S. and Canada. Jesse comes from a colourful background teaching health and safety practices to the body art industry, and has molded his love of educating into a new beast- guiding photographers of all background into nature to rediscover their roots and cameras. After studying photography in post secondary nearly 10 years ago, Jesse has steadily transitioned his focus to adventure portraits, pet photography and workshops full-time. Together their mission is simple: Make meaningful art in a place close to their hearts, Algonquin Park.

"How to Trespass" with Sean Galbraith (7:00 PM EST)
Sean Galbraith is a photographer, urban planner, and bow tie maker from Toronto. He's been specializing in making photographs inside of abandoned buildings for 14 years. Since 2008, he has almost exclusively photographed these spaces he visits with a 4x5 large format camera, but last year he bought his first digital camera in a decade and reluctantly reports that it is kind of fun. In 2009, he and his photographer friends were in a poorly watched television series called PhotoXplorers, which documented them trespassing across Europe for a week. He exhibits his very large format prints and has had numerous solo shows in Toronto. "How to Trespass" will take you behind the "No Trespassing" signs and inside some amazing abandoned buildings, while giving helpful tips on how to capture amazing photographs.
