    We meet the last Tuesday of the month at OC Tavern in San Clemente located at 2369 S. El Camino Real. The meeting starts at 6:00 PM but many come between 5 and 6 to get something to eat and drink. We meet on Taco Tuesday and I can assure you they are good. This month I will do a demo of focus stacking. Showing you the process of getting a larger depth of field with your macro shots. Also, since Adobe is planning to double the price of the photographer's package from $10 to $20, I will present some of your options for image processing software, including examples of pictures processed with the new On[masked] software. See you at the meeting.

    The Photographic Art Club meets at the OC Tavern in San Clemente the last Tuesday of the month. The meeting starts at 6 PM but come between 5 and 6 to get something to eat and drink. It is Taco Tuesday and the fish tacos are great. April Meeting Agenda: - Photography Updates - Macro Photography set-up explained - Peter Lik Photography - Astrophotography Latest - Photo Trip Planning to New Mexico - Photo Processing - Before & After - Photo Processing - Hobie 50 - Photo Critique One of the best ways to improve your photo skills is to have your images critiqued. To have your images critiqued, make them 6x9" 120PPI JPEG and upload them into the correct folder under the Photo's Tab. We have a project designed to develop an appreciation of image processing. Where some say they only want to snap pictures and not be bothered with image processing, they just don't understand how much better their images can be with just a little time spent on their image. So, upload an image just out of the camera and the same image after processing. They are to be loaded into the Before & After folder. We are doing an exercise where we all will process the same image to see how differently each may do their processing. I have sent an image out to the members who were at the last meeting. They will process the image and upload it into the Hobie 50 Image Processing folder. If you want to participate, send me an e-mail ([masked]) and I will send you the image. Hope you can make it to the meeting and one of our meet-up's and trips. By the way, I have three Canon lens to give away at the meeting.

    The purpose of the Photographic Art Club is to have a place where photographers can continue to learn as new cameras, software and other equipment becomes available. We meet at the OC Tavern at 2369 S El Camino Real in San Clemente the last Tuesday of the month. Members upload their 6x9" 120PPI JPEG images up to the web site by the Saturday before the monthly meeting. I need time to put together the presentation. We will critique images submitted so you can get input as to what to do to improve your work. We have local activities called Meet-up's where we go out to photograph things. These are free. We also have 3 and 4 day trips which are a more intense way of photographing locations with supervision and instruction in the field. I prepare a detailed presentation with helpful information that each attendee receives. When possible, I will go over the presentation at the monthly meeting before the trip. Depending on the location, members may camp or stay in a motel. These trips cost $98 per person. There is a $5 donation for attending the monthly meeting. If you would like to do a presentation at a meeting call me at[masked]. I was given a suggestion that we show the picture just as it comes out of the camera before processing and show the finished image. This will show the value of image processing. So, when you upload your images show both - just our of the camera and the processed image.
