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.
