A reminder that online entries will close at 5 pm sharp on Monday 12 May. This is so that they can all be compiled and handed in at the meeting starting at 7:30 pm that night.  Go to https://kcps.org.nz/salon-entry-form/ to submit your entry.

The meeting on Monday evening will be about recent PSNZ National Convention, held in Blenheim.  I’ll give a talk about how it all went, but also invite others from the club who attended to comment as well.

Last Development Group Meeting 5 May – Workflows

Hugh Scott did a great presentation to around 15 members all about general workflows for adding and processing new images from your camera, focussing on Capture NX2 (for Nikon).  I followed up with some details on the workflow for Lightroom 5.  For an overview, this video from Adobe might be helpful.  The “Digital Asset Management” book by Peter Krogh was also mentioned – here’s a link to his site which has various resources plus books for sale.

Last KCPS Meeting 28 April – Alison Viskovic FPSNZ and Waikanae Estuary

Alison Viskovic FPSNZ

Alison Viskovic FPSNZ

It was really interesting to hear from Alison all about her journey to create her set, and be successful in gaining an FPSNZ.

We also had a slide show of almost 100 images that have been submitted so far for consideration for our August Waikanae Estuary Exhibition at the Paraparaumu Library.  Further images will be most welcome, and can be submitted via https://kcps.org.nz/waikanae-estuary-exhibition/. The deadline is 26 May.

This was followed by a short talk from a guest, Mik Peryer, who literally wrote the book about the Estuary.  He related the love story of Thomas and Henrietta. Thanks, Mik.
