    Default Pentax Monthly Outing and Sharing Session on 18 Jan 6:15am - 1pm

    Pentax Monthly Outing and Sharing Session
    Date : 18Jan2015 (Sun)
    Sunrise shoot : 6.15am-7.45am
    Venue : Merlion Park

    Breakfast : 8am-9am

    Sharing session : 9am-1pm (venue is reserved for this timing)
    Venue : CS Event Hall (#04-31 Funan)


    Topics :
    1. Basic composition
    2. Basic post processing (what do I do after taking the photo)
    3. Basic techniques of processing in LR and PS
    (Adjustment brushes; a few exposure blending methods)



    Ever thought why your photos lacked punch, sharpness, impact?
    Ever wondered what more is needed to get to a good 50% or better for the shots you take (not just a snap )?

    Yes, this is the session for you if you want to be a little bit more consistent and better as a photographer.
    and Yes, a lot of it is founded on the basics.

    While I don't promise that you become a 80-90% level photographer, what I can offer to share are the approaches, basics that can help make one get more consistency in the photos.
    Shots that at least when shown, will get a general agreement that is competent and perhaps that occasional "Like"


    Basic Composition
    Basic composition attempts to address things from the start.
    How to use composition basics to get a more consistent photo.
    Leading lines, Rule of thirds, Golden Ratio, Patterns, etc.
    Things like how to place elements in the photo to better capture the viewer's attention.

    Basic Post Process and Processing
    70% or even 100% of the photo outcome (after taking it of course) is really won with applying basic adjustments.
    This is where getting the Exposure, WB, Levels, contrast, curves right will already deliver very good results in most cases.
    Add to this, some sharpening approaches, area specific processing to add up to the shot.

    More Advanced masking techniques for Landscapes
    In tricky situations where 1 exposure just will not cover the dynamic range or that the eye saw at that time.
    Masking approaches like luminosity masks, Exposure Layering, will come in useful as the array of techniques useful to the photographer to increase his/her level of competence.
    This will be covered in the session..
