Audubon Photo Club: Digital Darkroom Demos

“Digital Darkroom Demos” will be the topic at the Jamestown Audubon Nature Photography Club meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 9 at the Audubon Nature Center, 1600 Riverside Rd., one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, NY, and Warren, PA.

Member Bill Smith will demonstrate how to create a panorama from several shots and explain why combining shots can be better than just using a wide-angle lens.

Smith will also demonstrate creating a greater depth macro flower picture by combining shots of a single flower where the focus point changes from shot to shot.

“The Color Pink” and “Georgia O’Keefe Flowers” are the topics for the image review that begins the meeting. The Color Pink is about using a pink subject and finding a vantage point to isolate and emphasize the subject and so encourages people to think about the relationship of objects. For Georgia O’Keefe Flowers, members use the tips from last month’s program about how Georgia O’Keefe painted flowers to create their own in the painter’s style.

The 15-minute tech talk will be about combining two images, taking the best parts of both to create a better composite; the subject is a landscape with interesting sunset sky.

A social time will follow the program.

Visitors are asked to pay $5 that can be applied toward the annual membership of $30 if application is made by the next meeting. Among the benefits of membership are discounts on photography classes, field trips, and the right to show photos at Club exhibits.
