Special project for the October 14th meeting.
I found an interesting project in a photo magazine* I saw a while back. We discussed it at the September meeting and decided to give it a try.
The author/instructor had his class exchange RAW files and process them as if the images were their own. I thought it would be fun to do the same with our own images.
Anyone who is interested should bring a RAW file to the October meeting. I'd like it to be an image you have already processed for yourself - not one taken just for this project. The idea is not to 'correct or improve' another photographer's work but to 'see' the shot in your own way.
We will exchange the files at the October meeting - one per member. Bring in the resulting final photograph, along with the processed version of the image you shared, to the November meeting. I'd like to see them all as prints so we can look at the photos side by side but if that becomes an issue we can create a slide show instead.
