As a reminder, this week’s meeting is all about post-processing and we would like to see how you edit. Download a few source images from HERE, edit them, and submit your edits by clicking on the Dropbox link HERE for this week’s post-processing meeting. This week’s meeting is Thursday at 6PM in our usual meeting spot at the Toy F. Reid Employee Center. See you there!
As a continuation of our last meeting, we want to see how you process your images. Have a go-to technique or tool? Have a particular post-processing area of expertise you’d like to share? We’d love to see it.
The idea is for everyone to download a few images to work with from here: via Richard Siggins. (There is a variety to choose from.) Then, show us how you typically process your images. Once you are ready, upload submissions here: November Submissions. We’ll display them at our next meeting and allow everyone to give a brief walkthrough of what they did. This should be a great opportunity for us all to learn some new things from each other.
Looking ahead to December, pick a few of your best images from 2017 and submit them here: December Submissions. This will be a great opportunity to practice some post-processing techniques that we go over this month. We’ll display the submissions on the website through December, and in a slideshow at our annual holiday party on December 21st at the Toy F. Reid Employee Center, Room 219.
Our next meeting is this Thursday, October 19 at 6:30 PM in the Eastman Employee Center. We will be doing some demos on Lightroom and Photoshop Elements. If you want to learn more about these photo editing packages and tools such as spot removal/ content aware fill, graduated neutral density, etc. then you’ll want to be at this meeting. Come prepared with your questions and stump the experts in the room.
Did you know Adobe made a major announcement about Lightroom this week? Lightroom (now called Classic) 7 is out. As expected, there will be no more updates to the non-subscription version of Lightroom. Adobe is offering a new cloud-based version of Lightroom and there are big updates to mobile and web capabilities. Come to the meeting to learn more. Laura Shoe has a good blog post with more information.
Finally, there is just one opening left in the Basic Photography Class that starts November 7. You can read more about the class here

The Eastman Camera Club is sponsoring a basic photography class taught by Richard Siggins. The class will start out with learning the basics of photography – light, shutter speed, aperture and how to use them on your camera. From there we will get into color, composition, lighting, techniques and photographic gear selection. We’ll talk about some common photography challenges and how to overcome them. We will go over different photo editing packages, organizing photos, printing, and sharing online. The class will be a combination of classroom teaching, practicing our new photography skills, and reviews of photography assignments.
The class is designed for a photographer who has a DSLR, mirrorless camera, or advanced compact camera.
Classroom sessions are November 7, 9, 14 and 16 from 6:00 PM– 8:00 PM in the Eastman Employee Center. There will be one field trip on Saturday, November 11 to practice what we have learned. The Saturday time will depend on what works best for the majority of the students.
In every Class we will have time for:
Review of Homework – yes, we are in school again.
Problem Solving – Bring your camera and problem photos to class
Question and Answer
The class is open to Eastman Camera Club members. The good news is anyone can join the club by going to https://eastmancameraclub.com/ and clicking on About near the upper left of the page.

This month’s photo trip is to Clarks Creek. We will be meeting at the Crossroads Country Store and BP gas station on the corner of 81 and 107 at 8:30 AM and carpooling from there. This is between Jonesborough and Erwin. Location: 3401 Hwy 81 S, Jonesborough, TN 3765
The trail is described as an easy, fairly well-worn path with some rocks. Great hike for those new to hiking. It feels remote, fairly easy, short, and a great payoff at the end for the falls. The one stream crossing has flat rocks nicely positioned for a dry crossing. About 0.6 miles from parking to the falls.
