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!!

David Long is a well-known photographer out of New England that spends his springs in St Augustine shooting and doing workshops. He currently has one spot available for his 3/20/2023 workshop and has asked if we’d get that info out to our members. As Education Chair, that seems like it ought to come from you. Would you mind putting out a blast letting folks know? His request and the link to register is here.
Not much going on for tutorials at this time. 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.
