Upcoming

Workshop: Lightroom and Photoshop Workshop

During this meeting we'll likely break into two groups at the opposite ends of our hall, one to cater for the more advanced questions the other the basics of the applications. As we gather new members throughout the year we feel it's valuable to reenforce the basic concepts that David Harradine will have covered at a previous meeting earlier in the year.
