SCS Photography Club Meeting Minutes 10.14.2021

7pm - 8:50pm  (Moved to RM 5, DV. Excellent sound.)  RECORDED ON ZOOM 

*Norm welcomed members then introduced our Speaker, Allen Duff - Topic "Constructive Critique Session" - He reviewed photos by members with suggestions to improve. Here are a few highlights, such as; "maybe could use more cropping, think about it an interesting shot? Eyes are drawn to the brightest part of a photo. Stay away from a "bullseye" type center, better to put on side or angle. Colors need to be sharp - RED draws the eye. Subjects - always like odd numbers - 3,5,7 etc. Check your boarders, look at edges - could they be cropped/zoomed in to form a better photo? Add color in post processing to add interest, contrast etc. Delete corners that show edges not useful in subject. Watch for "leading lines", patterns, light from behind - either too bright or too dark. Always check focus - lighting - adjust if too dark or light." Excellent program!
