Fellow GEDPG Photographers,
GEDPG meetup Saturday 1:00 PM-3:15 PM at Glen Ellyn Police Department in Glen Ellyn.
We will meet at the Glen Ellyn Police Department conference room at the corner of Park Blvd, and Roosevelt Road in Glen Ellyn. The room has 2, 72 inch 4k monitors, a podium with audio equipment, and room for 40 members to attend. It is brand new, and we are allowed to use it 4 times a year at the ridiculous price of free. This is due to both Jake and Brian being Glen Ellyn residents, and we are a non profit group, (we do not charge you to be members) Larry is also a resident, so we may be able to do more than four a year.
So... we are having our third meetup at the new venue on Saturday July 6th from 1:00 PM to 3:15 PM.
The class will be an Adobe Lightroom[masked] class on how to edit your photos in 60 seconds, manage your photo library, backup techniques, best practices on model and location releases, and copyrighting to protect your photographic images. We will also devlve into photo bracketing for HDR, and photo panning stitching for Pano's. The organizers of this group all use and recommend Adobe products for this purpose, and it is inexpensive at $9.99 per month for both Lightroom and Photoshop. We will not cover alternatives. This will be lead by Brian MacManus, and will be approximately 70 minutes, with an open forum afterwards for 10 minutes for questions and answers. We will then break for a bathroom and snack break for 10 minutes. Following the break, we will delve into Photoshop 101, and how lightroom plays an important part in this. We will concentrate on compositing photos, and Photoshop basics. A 10 minute Q&A will follow. We need to vacate the premises at exactly 3:30 with a clean and orderly room.
We are limited to 40 members, so first come first served. If you RSVP to this event, attend, or let us know two days prior so we can accommodate others who will want to attend.
For the event on July 6th, bring your camera, and your laptop with lightroom and photoshop. And register early, as it is limited to 40 attendees. There will be no costs to our members.
Guests are discouraged with Tom and Alice as exceptions.
Kind regards and good shooting,
Jake, Jimmy and Brian
