Monday Zoom Meetings
1st March: Guest Speaker
Sharon and Robert Prenton-Jones present a talk on The Art Of Composite Photography.
"We are a married couple (Robert and Sharon) based in North Wales with our own home studio and surrounded by one of the most photogenic landscapes in the UK. Although we are comfortable with many genres of photography, we are perhaps best known for combining our studio work with the waterfalls, lakes, castles, mountains and beaches that are a short drive from our home".

13th March: RPS Online Talk
'Introduction to the Power of Luminosity Masks'
The more fine control we have over image adjustments the better we are able to create high-quality results and achieve our creative vision. In Photoshop, how skilled we are at creating masks largely determines how much control we have over our adjustments. Pixel-based masks, such as luminosity masks, represent the highest form of mask making. In this presentation, Sean Bagshaw will provide an introduction to what luminosity masks are, how they are made and ways they can be used to make very fine, nuanced and natural image adjustments.
Saturday 13th March, 16:00-17:00. Meeting room opens at 15:45.
Booking closes at 08:00 on 12th March.
This event is free to Digital Imaging members, and £3 to others.
There are other free RPS talks scheduled throughout March.
