Castlemaine Weekend 2017

We went to Castlemaine seeking gold. Our gold was not the precious metal discovered in the 1880s by miners digging, blasting and panning. Our gold was found in the light, the buildings, the people and the landscape of the historic goldfields town.

PixelPeeper.io

So, in the Web Whip this week I included a link to PixelPeeper.io, a website where you can upload a JPG image and, if it hasn't had its metadata stripped, see the Lightroom adjustments that have been made. Well seems the world of photography as a love/hate relationship with the site, that is largely unfounded... because... you've actually always been able to do this in Photoshop!

To confirm that PixelPeeper does what it claims to, I uploaded one of my images to the site to see the results.

Upcoming

Workshop: Matt Cutting

To help out members who don't regularly mount their printed works we're putting on a special informal meeting a week prior to our official start so you can enter prints into our first competition of the year. There will be folks who regularly matt their own work in attendance to help us out and they'll have the equipment and matt board required for you to use. 

Bring along the prints you wish to make matts for and go away having made your first matts and armed with the knowledge you need to enter prints throughout the year.

Brooklyn Community Hall
6th February 2018 7:00 pm
Presentation: Mercury Megaloudis - Portraiture

Mercury runs a successful portrait photography studio in Strathmore and has been a recipient of multiple AIPP awards for portraiture, family photograph and weddings. Mercury will be graciously sharing his knowledge about portraiture during his presentation.
