Tues. November 21st – Creating Greeting Cards with Photoshop

With the holiday season fast approaching some of you will be sending out greeting cards (either electronically or printed versions) so I’ll be covering how to create your own greeting cards using Photoshop.

I’ll look at image selection, image processing, graphic layout, fonts & effects and envelope creation.

After this session you’ll want to create all your greeting cards yourself.

Looking forward to seeing you all... Paul

Outing – Hamilton Cemetery – Saturday November 18 10 A.M.

Our second outing will be to the Hamilton Cemetery. Also known as the York Street Cemetery, located at 777 York Boulevard, Hamilton Date. This cemetery was built in 1847. It is The oldest municipally owned cemetery in Canada.

We will meet inside the York Blvd gate at 10 a.m. then individually photograph until 1 p.m., approximately. As you park, please ensure that cars are well spaced, not as a group, so that we do not interfere with other visitors.

For social time, we are planning to get together at the Rose Garden restaurant, located at 1124 Plains Rd W, Burlington, near to the Royal Botanical Gardens.

We would like these outings to be successful and interesting to members. One key measure of success is the turnout to participate.

Landscape Photography Night – Tuesday, October 31

Please join Jim and Karen Lait for a “Why & How” evening on Landscape Photography. This is an opportunity to share some of your Landscape photos and get some tips and techniques from other presenters.
Jim & Karen will give a brief presentation on Landscape photography and invite members to bring 2-3 landscape images to share. As part of the “Why & How” theme, please share “Why” you took that photo - what attracted you to the scene - and “How” you took it - settings, season/time of day, challenges, processing, special techniques, etc. In our years at Latow, we have learned so much from other members. So please come out, bring some images, share and learn, and most importantly, have fun!

October 2017 Photographic Art Exhibit by David Low

October 2017

Photographic Art Exhibit

Presented in the Art Gallery of Burlington - Fireside Room

David Low

Latow Photographers Guild

Meet the Artist - October 17th from 6 to 8:30 p.m. for a discussion of the works, and thoughts on Serendipitous Photography.

“When you first meet another photography enthusiast (and now everyone is, with cellphonography), one of the first questions will be, what type of photography do you like to shoot?  The answer will range from sports, to portrait, to street photography, still life, family, landscape, action, nature and beyond.  I’ve struggled to define an answer to the question but would call mine Serendipitous Photography.

Serendipity is defined as ‘an aptitude for making desirable discoveries by accident’.  My definition of ‘Serendipitous Photography’ departs from the traditional; it is developing an awareness of beautiful or interesting things around you and attempting to portray them as photographic art.  It is always driven by looking for more than the usual.  It may be that instantaneous moment in time or it may take several years to germinate and refine an idea.

"This installation is a collection of works over several years, each with a story.”   David

There will be a draw for one of David’s works at 7:20 p.m. and visitors will be invited to attend a 7:30 Latow presentation by one of the area’s top photographers, Paul Sparrow, on “Dynamic Range”.
