Image Storage/Backup

Millersville University

Everyone knows they should backup their images, but how many of us do it or do it well? Since it is essential to photography, we've decided to take a look at different methods. John Flinchbaugh will explain the theory behind doing it; Benoît will show how to use Windows automation; Dave Stackhouse will show how to use BackBlaze; and Lynn will show how to use Time Machine for a Mac. How to find us Park in the lot on Shenks Lane behind the building. Enter building at first entry door under the portico. Map is in "How to Find Us" Photo Album. Assignment: “Framed” or, if you're up for a challenge, "Extreme Histogram" to build on what you learned at March's meetup. If you’re not particularly inspired by the topic on the month, you have the option to submit ANY photograph taken that month for the critique. So there's no excuse!

Dodge & Burn with Benoît

Millersville University

From the beginning of photography to now the most powerful technique that any photographer can use is Dodging and Burning! Yes, it changed since it was used in the darkroom and now is fully digital, but its ”rules“ and uses stayed the same. We will look at how to use it in your raw processor (ACR/ Lightroom) and in Photoshop. These techniques are ”universal“ and can be used in most retouching apps. Come join us to learn about the best tool every photographer should know.
