Filters and resizing June 2018
Twenty-five menbers attended the workshop on the use of filters and on resizing photos.
Carol Sheridan begun her presentation with the message that becoming a good photographer is very different from the ’all the gear and no idea’, must have the latest gadget etc. She then explained 'depth of field', EXIF data and finally spoke about the use of filters. The talk was illustrated with several photos and it was interesting to see the various home-made filters she had. Her closing message was ”have fun"!
Mieke Mondelaers followed with a ‘hands-on’ presentation on Resizing Photographs with FastStone. She first had to explain some technical details about dpi (or ppi), about printing and printers then finally cropping and enlarging. Luckily, she also made an excellent document on this complicated subject which has subsequently been sent to all the members.
