Foto Friday

It is a chilly, raining, dark day here in old Hobart Town.  So I played with photos all day. I picked up the photos from the printer that will go into the exhibition in November. Really looking forward to it as I’ve never done it before.

Then our photo club September challenge is coming up and I need the photos submitted while I’m in Sydney next week so got those posted up early.  I have a photo club meeting the day after I return from Sydney.

There are two categories each month. For this next meeting one category is Performance. I need to post up anything to do with a performance.  Then there is the Open category where we can post anything we want.  All the club members post up their two photos and then at the meeting we see them on the big screen and we get a gold, silver or bronze. We don’t know who the judges are as they perform behind the scenes. Sometimes someone might get a Silver + or a Bronze +.  It is all good fun, sometimes we get a comment as to why they scored the way they did.  It is good practice especially if one is learning Photoshop or Lightroom or some other editing software.

The software is used more to fiddle around with the photos so they come out as they are remembered. Sometimes we take a photo then when it is downloaded we think, “Hey, that’s not how I remember it.” That is the main use of editing profiles.  More advanced work though has us compositing photos. That is when two or more photos are combined in various ways to make a new photo. As if illustrating something or doing specialty art work.  It is fun but I haven’t done much as it is a real skill to learn how to do it and I’m just not there yet.  Enjoy the little challenges this Friday.

Nun revised
I have posted this before but there were three people standing at the corner and I photoshopped them out. The focus is on the nun and I’ve submitted this to a Street Photography Facebook page. They pick a winning photo each week to use as the Page’s Photo. Just for fun.

See you again soon…Camera Penguin
