    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.

    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.,

    Facilitator: Mel Whaley /Howard Lonn,

    Last Meeting in May with return to schedule in September.

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

      

    When: Monday, 7 January 2019, departure time is planned for 6:00 am with arrival back in Sun City Grand at about 4:00 pm

     

    Departure: We will meet in the parking lot outside of Angela's at 5:45 am to form car pools and depart at 6:00 am. Use the parking lot on the south side of Remington drive farthest from the restaurant.

     

    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 50 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 5:45 am to form car pools and depart at 6:00 am.

    When: Saturday, February 2, 2019.  Depart SCG at 7:00 am. Judging begins at 8:00 am and runs throughout the day. Return to SCG around 3:00.

     

    Where:  AZ State Fairgrounds, 1826 W. McDowell Rd., Phoenix. Judging rings and grooming areas will be in the Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum.

    Photo Shoot Leader: Peggy Boike


    Who: Registration open to all Club Members. 


    What to expect: There will be over 1,500 dogs of all breeds competing in conformation (like dog shows you have seen on TV), and about 125 dogs running through obedience exercises (heeling, retrieving and jumping over hurdles).


    Vendors will be selling everything imaginable related to dogs. There will also be food vendors (hamburgers, hot dogs). Although the Coliseum has tons of bleacher seating, people won’t be sitting there. You will be standing or sitting right next to the show rings or wandering around the grooming area and talking to the breeders of your favorite breeds, or checking out the amazing variety of doggie merchandise that the vendors are selling. There will be folding chairs available if you choose to just sit in one place and watch the hounds, or the sporting dogs or the terriers or ….


    Camera Equipment is optional, but if you do bring your camera, photo ops include lots of people shots, dogs being groomed, breeders walking around with their dogs in their arms or on leash or waiting at ringside chatting with their competitors, then showing their dogs to the judge in the ring, and spectators young and old. Action shots include dogs jumping over hurdles with dumbbells in their mouths or sniffing articles for scent retrieval exercises in the obedience rings. Camera lens suggestions - medium range telephoto, wide angle, normal lens.


    Costs:  $10 admission per person plus $20 for gas and parking fee shared among riders.  Participants will be responsible for costs of their own food and beverages.


    Car Pools: Meet in the parking lot on the south side of Remington Dr. furthest from Angela’s at 6:45 am to form carpools and depart by 7:00 am.



    Registration Deadline: Monday, January 28, 2019 and please indicate if you are willing to drive. 


    Review: TBD


    This photo shoot will be available for registration starting Sunday December 16, 2018.

    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.

    What: Death Valley in Winter II - Photo Shoot


    When: Tuesday 19 February 2019, departure time is planned for 6:00 am with arrival back in SCG Friday 22 Feb. 2019 at about 8:00 pm

     

    Where: Death Valley National Park, California
           

    Photo Shoot Leader: Richard Coles


    Who: On a first come/first served basis group size limited to 14 Club Members. 


    Itinerary: A four-day photo shoot is planned comprising visits to over a dozen iconic locations within the Park taking full advantage of early morning and evening light. During this shoot, in a compressed time frame, you will experience a diverse range of very dramatic landscapes unique to this Park.


    For those who have not been on an overnight photo shoot before it is truly one of the highlights of Grand Photo Club membership. We will be seeking optimum light which means long days. If you cannot or do not wish to arise at 4:00 am for three days in a row to travel and catch pre-sunrise & sunrise images at interesting locations then do not sign up for this shoot, it’s not for you. The dates coincide with that of the full moon over the Park for added nighttime drama.


    This photo shoot is appropriate for photographers of moderate fitness levels who can readily handle long days, moderately strenuous activity such as being able to climb 50 stairs consecutively, plus walk without difficulty at least 2 miles over loose or uneven surfaces with occasional steep slopes. Walks typically last for 2 or more hours at a time. Altitudes can range to 6,000 to feet.


    All participants are expected to be able to carry their own camera, personal gear and water. Park temperatures in February are expected to be about 46F to 74F.


    Upon arrival at each location photographers will be ‘on their own’ to wander about exploring and photographing, returning to their vehicles at agreed upon times.


    Additional stops of opportunity may be made along the way.

       

    Camera Equipment Requirements: Any and all cameras including cell phones you would like to use for a fun outing. Besides your camera, you will need, tripod, wide angle, telephoto, macro lenses, suitable filters, lens cleaning supplies and extra batteries. Sufficient flash memory cards to handle the capacity for all photographs taken during a four-day shoot. A red night light to allow you to see your camera in the dark without flashing white light into someone else’s open shutter. A headlamp to see by in early morning or at night in the dark.


    Accommodation: Motel rooms are expensive, limited and must be booked many months in advance. A block of rooms has been set aside 4 rooms with king beds and 3 rooms with 2 queen beds in each room. The group of rooms is not large enough to trigger a group rate discount but they must be booked by individual participants. The rooms are $228 per night. Hotel advises that all funds will be returned to you if the room is cancelled more than 48 hours prior to arrival. Telephone 1-505-573- 1768, ask for Mak and she will book your room from the block of rooms she is holding for Grand Photos under Richard Coles' name.


    Please do not cancel your room before checking with the shoot leader to see if there is a shoot waiting list (ie. someone who will take over your room payment). Only those participants with rooms booked prior to 30 November 2018 (or substitutes thereafter) will be included in this shoot.


    Other Details: Most of the Park does not have cell phone service and other services are quite limited, it’s a wilderness area and gasoline is currently priced at about $5.00 /gallon.


    Food/drinks: Bring your individual snacks and drinks to maintain your energy level and hydration through long days. The micro climate in the Park is very dry.


    Additional Information: Additional photo shoot details will follow for those signing up.


    Costs: The National Park Service currently charges $30 per private vehicle, for 7 days. Fees may be paid at Furnace Creek Visitor Center. There is also an individual fee unless you have a lifetime Senior Pass. Please visit this site for any information on fees to National Parks: https://www.nps.gov/planyourvisit/senior-pass-changes.htm


    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 $40.00 per vehicle.

     We will meet in the parking lot outside of Angela's at 5:45 am to form car pools and depart at 6:00 am. Use the parking lot on the south side of Remington drive farthest from the restaurant. Passengers will share fuel expenses based on actual fuel cost per vehicle which is roughly estimated to be about $250.00 per vehicle.


    Registration Deadline: Friday, January 4, 2019 and please indicate if you are willing to drive. Only high clearance vehicles are appropriate for this shoot.


    Review: TBD


    Note: This shoot is dependent upon good weather and may be cancelled if inclement weather is forecast or if there is insufficient interest.
