Interest Groups and Workshops Brainstorming - Monochrome Images in Lightroom

26th September, 2023 – 7:30 pm to 10:00 pm

On 26th September we will be meeting in the Clubrooms and on Zoom.  

We intend to split the evening into two, hour long sessions: 

1st hour – Following up on the recent brainstorming session. 

The information from the recent brainstorming session has now been collated and has given the Committee valuable information about what workshops/courses and interest groups Club members would like to pursue. 

We have identified the six highest scoring workshops/courses and on the 26th we want to get member’s input into what topics they would like included in each of these workshops/courses. This information will allow us to develop appropriate workshops/courses that are relevant, meaningful and useful in the development of member’s photographic skills and knowledge in their areas of interest.  

2nd hour – Working with monochrome images. 

As our first competition in 2024 will be Monochrome, the second half of the evening will be devoted to:

  • How to take effective monochrome images
  • Which colour images could be successfully converted to monochrome
  • How to get the best out of a monochrome image in Lightroom 

Members who have images they would like to see converted to Monochrome may send them to by 5pm Tuesday September 26th and we will use them during the night.

We hope you can all attend as we (the Committee) are eager to hear your ideas.
