Next Photographic Frontiers Study Group Meeting

The next meeting of Flatirons Photo Club’s Photographic Frontiers Study Group will feature Murth Murthy. The meeting will be held next Wednesday night, July 5, from 7 to 9 p.m. at Boulder Digital Arts, 1600 Range St., Boulder.

After a brief review of his May presentation on the use of Photoshop’s History Brush, Murth will delve deeper into the brush’s use before covering several related topics. For those who don’t already know it, Murth is a Photoshop guru, and his presentations are always informative and useful.

Remember to bring any photos that you’d like to have critiqued or simply discussed. The purpose of this group is education and mutual support.

Photographic Frontiers Study Group Meeting Wednesday, June 7, 7 to 9 p.m.

The next Photographic Frontiers Study Group meeting will be held next Wednesday, June 7, from 7 to 9 p.m. at Boulder Digital Arts, 1600 Range St., Boulder, CO. Our featured speaker will be Cary Wolfson, who will present his iPhoneography workflow. Cary says, “I’ll be demonstrating from start to finish with several of my recent images. My workflow begins (and often ends) with Snapseed. It’s incredibly versatile and, best of all, it’s free. Plain and simply put, you need this.

“I will also be using several, if not all, of these apps:
“Touch Retouch does an excellent job of removing unwanted elements from your image.
“Brushstroke offers a wide variety of painterly effects.
“Distressed Fx has a slew of interesting textural effects, as does Stackables. (These two may be iPhone only, but Android users can try Vintage Scene.)
“Leonardo is a layer-based app that has a lot in common with Photoshop.
“iColorama is an incredibly deep app that can be used to create an infinite range of artistic effects.
“Circular is a fun app for creating mini-worlds from your photos.

“You can download whichever of these look appealing to you and follow along.”

Whether or not you’ve already delved into iPhoneography, this will be an extremely valuable presentation. There’s a world of photographic opportunities in nearly everyone’s hand these days.
