Upcoming presentation/demo at the Orlando Camera Club...

I hope to see you at my upcoming presentation at the Orlando Camera Club on August 22 at 6:30pm! I'll be giving a talk and demonstration to show you cool and creative ways to artistically enhance your images. You can create beautiful HDR images with Nik HDR Efex Pro. Nik Software has generously donated a raffle prize of Nik HDR Efex Pro to one lucky winner! 

Textures are a wonderful way to work with your images in an artistic way. Adding a texture layer is easy and fun, and I'll show you just how you can use them for a vintage look. I'll be showing you the latest textures from Flypaper Textures. My favorite painterly technique is Snap Art. You can create a hand painted look with your photographs that would be stunning printed on canvas. I'll share a few of my favorite effects so you can see how it would work with your images.

I can't wait to show you some fun stuff with Topaz Adjust! If you haven't tried Topaz Adjust you are in for a treat. Topaz Labs has donated lots of raffle prizes! I'm very excited to show you what you can do with Adjust and also Simplify. We'll have a lot of fun, we'll cover a lot of material, and I hope you'll come away inspired to try a few new techniques with your photography! 

Tamrac has provided an awesome camera bag, Rally 5 3445 that will fit your iPad (or netbook), camera and lenses. I would love to have this bag myself, perfect for light travel. One lucky person will take it home on August 22! I carry the Tamrac 5W Expedition that I will show you with my gear in place. I've carried this bag from border to border of the US, and to many different countries. It's protected my camera and lenses, it's organized in a smart way, and is easy to carry.  I'm bringing my Feisol 3442 tripod too. Pick it up, see what you think of this version of carbon fiber!

See you on August 22 at 6:30pm! ~ Deb
