    Creative Editing Techniques:

    A series of monthly sessions. If you would like to try new creative ways to interpret your photos, this course is for you. The course is about making photos more “artistic” or “impressionistic” using the editing tools in Photoshop, Affinity Photo, Topaz plug-ins and the new Topaz Studio and other apps that use layers.  

    The  session topics are as follows:

    • October will include a short slide show of images created using these techniques as well as a YouTube video on the basics of layers.  
    • November- Texturizing  and creating images using a technique  called “Line and Reveal”.
    • December- Using Topaz Simplify with one of my favorite workflows.
    • January - Creating “watercolor”  and other “painterly”  images using Topaz Simplify.
    • February -Using textures in a variety  of ways.
    • March - Frames, borders and edges.
    • April and May - These sessions are freeform, responding to needs, wants and new ideas from members.

     While digital art is the objective learning more about the use of layers and other editing tools will be useful for “normal” editing as well. There’s a lot to learn and it’s a lot of fun!


    In this session I’ll do an introduction that will include a short slide show of some of the images I’ve created using the techniques that I’ll be demonstrating . I’ll show a YouTube video on the basics of layers to build a foundation for the creative techniques.

    Image Critique: For those photographers who wish to improve the quality of their images through a friendly critique program, this is the perfect forum.  You are encouraged to bring one to three photos for the critique on a flash drive. Images should be in JPEG format.  It is recommended that they be the same resolution we use for our competitions of 1400 x 1050 pixels. These may be images you are considering entering in a competition or that you have entered and you want suggestions for improvement, or whatever your reason is for wanting to share them.


    Please understand that the critique we give or receive is only the opinion of those giving the critique. Opinions vary and if it is your image, your opinion is the one that matters the most, but it is valuable to hear the opinions of others and then we can act as we see fit. These sessions also tend to lead to discussions of techniques to improve our images. We can all benefit from that.


    We may provide some images from recent competitions to discuss why we believe they did well. Hopefully we can all learn from this also.

    What: Granite Dells at Watson & Willow Lakes and Historic Prescott - Photo Shoot

      

    When: Thursday, 21 February, 2019, departure time is planned for 5:30 am with arrival back in Sun City Grand at about 4:00 pm

     

    Where:  Watson Lake Park, Willow Lake Park, Historic Courthouse Square Prescott

       

    Photo Shoot Leaders: Dennis Hilgar & Richard Coles

     

    Who: On a first come/first served basis group size limit of 16 Club Members.


    Degree of Difficulty: This photo shoot is appropriate for photographers of moderate fitness levels who can readily handle a long day, moderately strenuous activity such as being able to climb 35 stairs consecutively, have good balance, plus walk without difficulty at least 2 miles over loose or uneven surfaces with occasional steep slopes. Altitudes will range to 5,200 feet.


    We will be walking over various trails and rock formations on a rugged trail through the Dells, over granite rock outcrops, and along the north edge of Willow Lake. All participants are expected to be able to carry their own camera, personal gear and water. Park temperatures in January are expected to be about 35F to 55F.


    Photographers will be expected to follow a white dot trail behind leaders at Willow Lake to maintain group cohesion and schedule. At other locations there will be opportunities to be ‘on your own’ to wander about exploring and photographing, returning to your vehicles at agreed upon times.


    Food/drinks: Bring your individual snacks and drinks to maintain your energy level & hydration though the day.

       

    Camera Equipment Requirements: Any and all cameras you would like to use for a fun outing. Smartphones, point & shoot, DSLR’s, opportunities for a variety of lenses (telephoto, wide angle, etc.)


    Clothing: Weather/temperature appropriate, layered clothing, sturdy shoes/boots with good traction required along with sunscreen, hats, gloves, sunglasses. Walking poles could be helpful if you have them/ use them regularly.


    Itinerary: Enjoy a trail walk through Granite Dells a series of remarkable and huge weather shaped, 1.3-billion-year-old, granite boulders adjacent to Watson and Willow Lakes – two man made reservoirs that attract lots of interesting water birds.


    Afterward a visit to the Courthouse Plaza Square Historic District of Prescott for lunch at the Palace Restaurant and Saloon.

         

    Afterward a short ‘photo opportunity’ walk around the Square bounded by Cortez, Gurley, Goodwin and Montezuma Streets and perhaps ice cream cones for some!


    Upon leaving Prescott for the return trip there will be at least two additional “surprise” stops for photo opportunities at interesting locations along US 89 through Wilhoit, Peeples Valley, and Skull Valley


    Downtown Historic Area in Prescott is home to some of the oldest buildings in the area. In fact, many of the city's buildings that are in the National Register of Historic Places reside in the downtown area, so it's a great place to go to indulge in some true Old West history.  Many buildings in the area date back to the 1800s, and most have been beautifully restored to reflect the era. One of the most famous parts of the downtown area has got to be Whiskey Row. Whiskey Row dates back to 1864 and was frequented by many well-known figures of the time, including the Earp brothers and Doc Holliday, who were made famous thanks to the gunfight at O.K. Corral in 1881. It was home to numerous saloons and breweries, before fires destroyed most of the buildings in 1883 and again in 1900.  Whiskey Row has been restored and today it stands as a monument of days gone by, with old-style saloons, bars and restaurants filling the street. The Palace is one such place that has been beautifully restored and is now Arizona's oldest saloon, and the Hotel St. Michael, dating back to 1891, is also one of the oldest hotels in the area.

      

    Entrance Fees:  Watson Lake/Willow Lake Entrance Fees: $3 per vehicle. Participants will be responsible for costs of their own food and beverages.

     

    Car Pools: We will meet in the parking lot outside of Angela's at 5:15 am to form car pools and depart at 5:30 am. Use the parking lot on the south side of Remington drive farthest from the restaurant. Passengers will share fuel expenses; estimated fuel cost for the round trip is $33.00 per vehicle.

    Suggested Reading10 Tips for Improving Your Flower Photos and A Guide to Getting Great Wildflower Photos


    Clothing: Peridot Mesa is totally exposed to the sun with no shade and generally rocky so hats and proper hiking footwear are required, no open toed shoes or sandals. Weather/temperature appropriate, layered clothing along with sunscreen, hats, sunglasses.


    Itinerary: Enjoy a trail walk through a very unique terrain carpeted with Mexican Poppies and other varieties of flowers that is populated with Saguaro and other cactus varieties. The Peridot Mesa vent is a part of the San Carlos volcanic field located in San Carlos, AZ on the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation. The mesa is about 1.9 miles in diameter and is capped by a basalt flow 10 to 20 feet thick that originated from a volcanic cone located in the Southwest corner of the mesa.


    We anticipate arrival at Peridot Mesa about 8:30 am and we plan to leave Peridot Mesa at 10:45 am.


    We plan to eat lunch at a Judy's Cook House between Globe and Miami at 11:30 am. Exit Rte. 60 at Russell Rd. and take immediate left up the hill into their parking lot. Immediately after lunch we will proceed to Boyce Thompson Arboretum. (40 min away)


    We plan to leave Boyce Arboretum at 2:30 pm.    


    Conditions: There are no restrooms at the Peridot Mesa site so our restroom stop will be at McDonald's along the right side of the highway in Globe because they have better restroom accommodations.

     

    We will also stop a short distance from this, at Circle K on the left side of the highway in Globe, where each participant must obtain a $10 recreation pass for access to Peridot Mesa. Each person has to be processed separately and each will need to present a drivers license. This is a time-consuming process which is why we are departing SCG at 5:30 am.

    The Creative Eye: Composition and learning how to look at a subject of interest from different points of view is a necessity for producing interesting and different photographs. 


    "The Creative Eye" goal is to learn how to "see the world around us" in a photographically creative way. Some of us have a natural ability to take what we see with our eyes and mental filters, and get the camera to ‘see’ in that similar way. Others have to work at it. This is not a lecture series; rather the sharing of images with a common theme that we will take, bring back, and share with each other. We will have different 'projects' each month that we hope will train our eyes.


    From simple topics like 'Starts with T' to more challenging ones such as 'Surprise' or 'Explore,' the variety of subjects is a constant brain teaser. Not only does the routine test imagination and creativity, it also provides an opportunity to try out a variety of camera settings and photography techniques.


    It is refreshing that this is NOT a competition; there are no rules, no winners or losers. It's a challenge that is entirely personal.


    The Creative Eye, Meets 1st Wednesdays @ 3-5 P.M.,

    What is sharpening and how does it work? What do the different sharpening controls like radius, detail, masking do? What about noise reduction – how does that interact with sharpening? How should images be sharpened for best creative impact? These questions will be addressed using the e-book “The Photographers Guide to Image Sharpening in Lightroom” by Robin Whalley and accompanying videos. While the workshop is Lightroom oriented, the principles – and in many cases the tools – are applicable to all photo editing software.

    The Creative Eye: Composition and learning how to look at a subject of interest from different points of view is a necessity for producing interesting and different photographs. 


    "The Creative Eye" goal is to learn how to "see the world around us" in a photographically creative way. Some of us have a natural ability to take what we see with our eyes and mental filters, and get the camera to ‘see’ in that similar way. Others have to work at it. This is not a lecture series; rather the sharing of images with a common theme that we will take, bring back, and share with each other. We will have different 'projects' each month that we hope will train our eyes.


    From simple topics like 'Starts with T' to more challenging ones such as 'Surprise' or 'Explore,' the variety of subjects is a constant brain teaser. Not only does the routine test imagination and creativity, it also provides an opportunity to try out a variety of camera settings and photography techniques.


    It is refreshing that this is NOT a competition; there are no rules, no winners or losers. It's a challenge that is entirely personal.

    Image Critique: For those photographers who wish to improve the quality of their images through a friendly critique program, this is the perfect forum.  You are encouraged to bring one to three photos for the critique on a flash drive. Images should be in JPEG format.  It is recommended that they be the same resolution we use for our competitions of 1400 x 1050 pixels. These may be images you are considering entering in a competition or that you have entered and you want suggestions for improvement, or whatever your reason is for wanting to share them.


    Please understand that the critique we give or receive is only the opinion of those giving the critique. Opinions vary and if it is your image, your opinion is the one that matters the most, but it is valuable to hear the opinions of others and then we can act as we see fit. These sessions also tend to lead to discussions of techniques to improve our images. We can all benefit from that.


    We may provide some images from recent competitions to discuss why we believe they did well. Hopefully we can all learn from this also.
