Photographic Frontiers Study Group Meeting 01/08/14

Greetings and Happy New Year!

This is a reminder that the Photographic Frontiers Study Group (formerly the Digital Study Group) will have its first meeting of 2014 at 7 pm on January 8 at Mike’s Camera on Pearl Street in Boulder. The decision was made to change to January 2014’s second Wednesday because the first Wednesday of the month falls on New Year’s Day. Starting in February, we will return the meetings to the first Wednesday of the month.

Thomas Walsh will give a presentation on the basics of digital videography. Topics will include basic equipment, shooting, and post-processing. Though the focus will be on DSLRs and Photoshop, much of what will be covered can be directly used with other recording gear and software, including phones and Apple’s $15 iMovie.
If you’ve ever considered hitting that “Record Video” button but haven’t taken the leap, this meeting is for you.

Lightroom 5 beta released

One of my favorite sites, Photography for Real Estate, has a brief article (with links to Julianne Kost video tutorials) on the newly released Lightroom 5 beta. Seems it might be a very nice advance over version 4, and as the article points out the new “Upright” feature could prove to be quite a time saver for real estate photographers not to mention others.
