Price: $2.00 per person
Pujols 5 Restaurant
St Louis, MO 63146
I will bring my mac laptop. I'd appreciate it if someone volunteers to bring their PC laptop.
I'd like each of you to select one or two tips, tricks, or techniques you like to do in Photoshop, Elements, Lightroom, or other software (I have irfanview & may have ACDSee if I get it transferred to my laptop). You'll each get a few minutes to show one of your favorites.
I'll also share my latest portrait retouching tricks I've added since we last talked about that. I find they're much quicker than what I used to do with pretty much the same result. I used these to good effect on a recent $1,500 portrait job for which I had to retouch 41 heads! (13 people in various groupings). Good thing I figured out relatively quick ways to do it. ( I also had to change the color of several people's clothes & remove distortion from a wide angle shot among many other things.)
Food will be available off the menu with separate checks for anyone who would like to partake of Pujols 5's excellent selections. ( I can recommend the steak salad for guys who don't feel like they've eaten if they have a salad, but want to pretend to eat healthy ).
See you there. I've learned a lot of techniques I use every week from this group in the past, so I know we each have something useful to share.
PS - I'll have some free hand sanitizer for everyone courtesy of our new meetup sponsor, Trend Micro & I'll explain who they are. (They provide among other things free software you can use to check if you have viruses on your PC - I just tried it out & it said I'm virus free - whew!) Once I get funding from them (technical difficulties so far), I'll probably stop charging for the meetups.
PS2- Sorry for taking so long to set up this meetup. I was swamped & am finally catching up.
