Alphabet Letters

Further to last month's meeting regarding the size of the alphabet letters images (which will spell out Colchester Creative Shots), could members please send me their shots at least the size of 1000px x 1500px at 300ppi (as I can resize smaller if I receive a bigger image). Please note that this is ...

Re: Just checking email notification is working.

I don't think the email notifications always get through to everyone so I am just liaising with the technical staff at our hosting company to try and get it sorted. I've made some changes to the settings so just testing to see if it has made any difference....

Re: Ely Cathedral Visit

Only 6 members have voted so far. If you haven't done so already, can you please let us know whether you will or won't be coming to Ely. If you are undecided, just let us know by posting here. We will then know that everyone is aware of the trip and can plan accordingly.
Thanks

Re: Ferrari Parade

Thanks Phil. I did go but stood on the corner of Head Street and the High Street so the cars in my images are at an angle so nice to see the Ferraris 'head-on'. It was interesting to see that the cars really 'popped-out' in some of them and am guessing he used photoshop to blur the crowds a little a...

Hi Trevor,
I've got a glass bowl and some shoe boxes I can bring. I've also got some wrapping paper too.

Re: ON1 effects software is free

Hi Elaine,
You can use it as stand-alone software too so you don't need PS or LR to use it :).

Enjoy your trip to Madeira. I'm sure the weather will be better than here! The flower show sounds like a great opportunity for some wonderful pics - I look forward to seeing them at one of the meetings :).

ON1 effects software is free

I can recommend this either as a plug-in for Photoshop or Lightroom or if you don't have either, you can use it as a stand-alone programme. Very quick and easy to turn images into Black and White etc.

Re: Bluebells at Arga Fen

Hi Elaine,
It would be good to catch either the early morning or later afternoon light. I think members might be keener at catching the good light in the later afternoon but I don't mind. Ian is up for the afternoon so shall we say 2:30pm?? Does that fit in with you?

The village grapevine, plus Amanda recently visited Spouses Wood (next to Arga Fen), says that the bluebells are already out in Hill House Wood. Worried that they may not be at their best on 6th May, the committee have decided to bring the photoshoot forward to Saturday 22nd April. How does that sui...
