Images for The Weekly

As was announced at the Jan 5 meeting I am looking for new images for the header of the Weekly. The image(s) should represent the purpose of Jacksonville Camera Club. As you can tell by looking at the above image, that concept was to show photographers taking photos. Depending on the response of the membership to this request, the new image(s) may be a collage, another relatively wide image or even a series of images changed during the year. I have set up a Google page for anyone to upload an image. The link to the page is here. Hope to see a lot of great photos!!

Educational Opportunities

all this information with links can be found on the Education page

There are two  new tutorials/classes available on the Education page for January.  Also, Blake Rudis of f64 Academy has a new tutorial about using the color curves inside the curves adjustment. It is quite comprehensive and worth looking at. I personally don't think this is for Photoshop beginning users, but if you have used curves to adjust your images, I think you can handle it. The tutorial is quite comprehensive and explains the color theory behind adjusting color quite well.

Additionally Matt Kloskowski has published templates for creating calendars for 2023. These free templates are available here.  And he includes a tutorial video as well.

A new online class Intro to Pet Photography will be available on Jan 19 at 6:00 PM. Please check the Educatation page to click on the appropriate link to sign up. Suggest that you sign up in advance.
