Introduction to Lightroom Part 2 - Workshop by Ray Shorter (7:30 PM E. Australia Standard Time)
Following-on from his Introduction to Lightroom Workshop late in 2017, Ray Shorter will be conducting another workshop – Introduction to Lightroom Part 2.  After a very brief revision of Part 1, in Part 2 we will be delving further into the Library Module (e.g. Import Pre-sets, types and uses of Collections, tagging, sorting, finding and deleting photos etc.), the Develop Module (e.g. further tools for enhancing photos, use of Virtual Copies, synchronising changes across several photos etc) and Exporting photos (eg DPIs for the web or BCG competitions as well as for making prints either yourself or at a print lab). If you have been using Adobe Bridge to organise your photos and are wondering why you should use Lightroom, have a read of this brief article Ray prepared to compare the two.  This workshop will be using what Adobe now calls Lightroom Classic CC, that is, the one based on your own computer (PC or Mac) and not the one based on cloud storage. So, if you would like to learn a bit more about how to use Lightroom to easily organise your photos and enhance them simply and effectively, come along to this next free workshop in BCG’s Lightroom series. delete

Presenters Night (7:30 PM E. Australia Standard Time)
Fred Husted - Sports Photography Fred Husted is a local freelance photographer whose preferred genres are: Sport Travel Music Portraits Fred also runs beginner clinics on taking better travel photos. His specialisation is Sports Photography and in particular Field Hockey where he has been a contracted photographer to the Australian Hockey Association and recently shot the Commonwealth Games Hockey. Fred’s belief is that most beginner/intermediate photographers spend too much time concerning themselves with researching equipment and not enough time actually practicing. “I don’t use the biggest or best gear available today.  I do not have any more technical skills or knowledge than the average keen amateur photographer. What I probably do more than most is, Practice the skills I need; Shoot with a purpose, or for a Customer; Don’t listen ‘experts’ on social media about the minute difference in technical specifications of this brand or that brand.” Fred is happy to share how he shoots sport but is quick to remind us that there are many ways to produce great images. delete
