Macro Photography presented by Tami Mohs. She has always enjoyed art and studied fine art graphic design and photography at Moorhead State University in Minnesota. After graduating with a fine arts degree in painting, Tami moved to Columbus with her husband and worked as a graphic designer for years as they raised their boys. It was during an expat assignment in Sweden for her husband that Tami really started pursuing photography. Tami was able to use this time to explore the areas around the house as subjects for macro work. It was both challenging and rewarding as she learned the techniques to get amazing shots within their small yard. The best thing about macro is that you can explore new places without leaving your own yard. Tami was among the top ten photographers receiving the highest scores in the 2021 Indiana State Fair Competition. Her website is at www.mohsphotography.com.

Club Meeting Program: Mini programs by Riviera members - a digital slideshow or video. A time for members to share their adventures or stories.
The topics covered in the slideshows will be varied and are up the members submitting them. They could feature trips or topics of interest to the creator such as lighthouses, landscape photography, photojournalism. They could be instructional presentations. Length should be five to eight minutes. With or without music or narration.
The slideshow should be a timed program rather than manually advancing images. Programs you may want to consider include Lightroom Slideshow, Keynote, iMovie, FotoMagico, Windows Movie Maker, Movavi Slideshow Maker and Proshow Gold. There are many more available.

Club Meeting Program:
Shared editing. Photography is an art—it is about emotion, feeling, style, and expression. Three unedited RAW photos will be selected from the January critique for members to edit in Lightroom, Photoshop, Luminar, Topaz, or other apps. The edited versions are to be returned by February (date TBD). Keep notes about the software used and changes. We will then examine the different results members made from editing the same image. This will demonstrate how different people create different feelings, moods, and impact through post-processing. Their expression is controlled by the range of contrast, clarity, saturation, cropping, dodging, burning, and color balance. Edits may be full-spectrum or monochrome. The results may be similar in some ways and dramatically different in other ways. The apps and steps used to achieve the results may be even more varied than the results themselves.
