We will meet this Tuesday. The agenda will include discussion of a field trip to Bosque del Apache the weekend of December 6th and the potential purchase of a notebook computer to run the LAPC and LAAUG meetings. No formal presentation is planned, but we will pick up where we left off with Michael Frye’s eBook (http://www.michaelfrye.com/) on landscape photography and use one or more of the pictures he provides with the book to run through his Lightroom workflow for said picture. Once again this will be a very interactive session.
Harvey Morgan, II presents his approach to retouching portraits in Lightroom. Harvey prefers using a light touch to keep the portrait looking natural. Thus, he usually backs off the Presets found in the LR Adjustment Brush to Iris Enhance, Soften Skin, and Teeth Whitening. He also demonstrates a commercial application, Portrait Professional, that is devoted to portrait retouching.

Ken Hanson will talk about making prints of your digital photos, either using your own printer or having someone else print them. Topics will include kinds of prints and papers, using Lightroom to drive your own printer or produce files to send to a print lab, color profiles, monitor calibration, mounting and framing.

The Los Alamos Photo Club will sponsor a one-day workshop on Landscape Photography on April 12 presented by noted photographer and teacher, Glenn Randall. The workshop will be held in Fuller Lodge on the second floor of the Art Center starting at 9 AM and lasting until 5 PM, with several breaks. Lunch is not included. The registration fee is $70.
We will be having a meeting tomorrow upstairs in Fuller Lodge from 7-9 PM. The topic is LR web galleries and perhaps some Ad Hoc on slideshows too. Doug will show how to generate HTML and Flash web pages that you can create and then upload to a server using the Web Module. He will also discuss slide shows and show how the tools used for the Web Module have a lot in common with tools used in the Slideshow Module.
Instead of meeting on March 4, which would be our normal meeting day of the first Tuesday of the month, we will join the LA Photo Club at the Mesa Public Library at 7:00 PM on March 18 and tour the Los Alamos Photo Show. We will discuss the prints and if the photographer is present, ask him/her questions about technique, etc.
This will be a continuation of what we started last meeting. We will take pictures from volunteers, put then in Lightroom and edit live. If we have enough of editing by committee we may also decide to share some photos.
The business meeting will be to discuss, dues, the upcoming Glenn Randall Workshop and the upcoming photo show.
