Jeff Blincow, hosted our Saturday morning Photographic meeting this last weekend .
This meeting was intended to show the different aspects and methods of making not
only good foto's into very good foto's but to retrieve desperate images into a state
you would be pleased to keep and not automatically put into the trashcan.
Jeff showed us a few tricks of the trade in not only cloning from one image, but also
how to amalgamate the best parts of two images into making one superb image.
Coupled with a good back grounding of editing processes Jeff also showed us how an
old and free editing program (paint shop pro) could hold its own with more up to date packages.
All in, we had a very informative and very interesting meeting that as far as I was
concerned could have gone on much longer.
I'm sure that all who attended went home with a few more skills and very much
appreciated all Jeff's efforts.
I would just like to Clarify one point however, that is these processes cannot be used in the
NBC photographic competition, but are are really useful for personnel and show images.
Many Thanks Jeff.
On another note, an effort will be made for the Wednesday NBC meeting for a selection of
insects to be available to photograph, so please bring your cameras along.
