In January, 2021 the club held a session that was entirely for fun. There were no judges or judgement!
Four stock photos were sent to the members who downloaded them into their preferred photo editing program. Then the fun began as they unleased their inner artist or child while exploring filters, plug ins and sliders they’ve never used before. People could choose to do just one picture or all of them in different ways. They had a chance to explain their thought process and how they went about achieving the different effects. Not only was it enjoyable but we also learned a lot by hearing about the various techniques people used, including cell phone software.
The original four photos are below. Click on the photo title to see the variety of outcomes.
