The Pagosa Springs Photography Club will hold Its April meeting on Wednesday the 10th, at The Community United Methodist Church, 434 Lewis Street.

Join us for socializing at 6 p.m., followed by a brief business meeting and presentation at 6:30 p.m.. Anyone interested in improving their photography is invited to attend, whether a novice or experienced photographer. 

The April 10 presentation will be given by Doug Coombs, on Processing Milky Way Images in Lightroom.

Doug is the chair and co-founder of the Los Alamos Adobe Users Group in New Mexico and also former chair of the Los Alamos Photography Club for nearly a decade. He has been doing photography since high school, worked as a photographer and dark room tech in college, and fell in love with digital photography in 2003. As a software engineer/developer for Los Alamos National Laboratory, post processing on a computer instead of in a darkroom came naturally. He finds the depth of digital photography and what can be done with post processing fascinating and enjoys learning about it and sharing his knowledge with others.

In his presentation, Doug will use a raw file from a Milky Way photo shoot taken in October 2018 at Great Sand Dunes National Park to go through a number of post processing steps in Adobe Lightroom. Time permitting he will show the same photo developed using Photoshop as the main tool and explain why at this point in his learning Milky Way post processing, he prefers to start in Lightroom but add Photoshop into the workflow for certain tasks.

Club members may bring up to 10 photos on a thumb drive to share with the group after the presentation, if time permits. 

The Pagosa Springs Photography Club promotes educational, social and fun interactions between all who enjoy making and viewing great photography. The Photography Club meets on the 2nd Wednesday of each month (unless otherwise noted) at the Community United Methodist Church at 434 Lewis Street in downtown Pagosa Springs, Colorado. Come at 6 p.m. for socializing; presentations begin at 6:30 p/m.. Members may share digital or print images following our guest speakers. Membership is just $25/calendar year for individuals and $35 for families. To join or renew, fill in the application form and mail it with a check for your dues to the address shown on the form, or bring it to one of our meetings.
