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..

Just to clarify, not just Pentax users, all other camera (even phone camera) users are welcome to join us too :) Of course if you convert to a Pentaxian later on, it'd be even better ;)

Special thanks for Spidey89 for the invaluable help of getting everything ready.
Thanks to WongLP too, for the help and kind support.



Nice meeting everybody for the session and hope to see everyone in future outings.
If there are any queries do post them in the Pentax section and we can discuss too during outer outings. :)
