Let's Kickoff 2011 with a bang! We are excited to announce our first speaker of the year, the one and only Russell Brown!
Russell is the Emmy Award-winning instructor, and Senior Creative Director at Adobe Systems Incorporated. Always delighting in testing the creative limits of his tools, he is the prolific creator of an entertaining collection of Photoshop tips and tricks. His double treat of great information presented in a bold, zany style has won him a regular following among beginning, intermediate and advanced users alike. Dr. Brown will cover the following topics at our meeting:
Using your iPad, iPhone or Galaxy Tab as a Photography Portfolio.
In the first part of the evening, Russell will spotlight an collection of useful tips for publishing your photo portfolio to your favorite portable devices. Learn some techniques for exporting images from Photoshop CS5 as an album without having to navigate through iPhoto. Also discover the wonders of PDF export from Adobe Bridge CS5 and see how to publish your own portfolio books to share with others.
Create Natural Toned HDR Images, and the Wonders of Camera RAW & Smart Objects.
OK, we have seen the classic over-saturated, and super-sharpened HDR photos, but now it's time to move to the next level of HDR imaging. Russell will discuss some of his favorite new methods for a new, more gentle and realistic looking HDR toning. This process may have you revisiting some of your earlier HDR shots and processing them again. All these techniques will be done using HDR Pro in Photoshop CS5. Also covered in this part of the evening will be Dr. Brown's Photoshop tips for working with Camera RAW images in combination with Smart Objects. Learn the true art of Photoshop creativity with these nondestructive techniques.
And to top it all off, Russell will be graciously offering some great raffle items!
Come join us, reunite with your fellow Photoshopoholics, snack on some pizza, and have a shot at winning some cool giveaways!
