Serge Ramelli, a French photographer living in the beautiful city of Paris, France and in Los Angeles, CA. is a favorite photography instructor of mine. I have been following Serge for several years now and find his style of teaching very easy going and easy to follow. During this time I have learned a lot of tips and techniques in using both Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. He is very generous with his instructions and gives out a ton of free stuff, (tutorials, raw files, presets, etc.). In fact if I post the following link to his YouTube Channel I get to choose one of his courses for free. Now how can I pass up a deal like that. I bet if you were to follow him and that if you have a photography blog he might just make you the same offer. I hope you enjoy his free Youtube tutorials.
Check out Serge Ramelli's Youtube channel! He has over 400 tutorials on photography, he is the number channel on Lightroom worldwide. If you want great tricks and tips photography check him, out! https://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=cmoeu
Thank you Serge.
Super Moon over Morgan's Gun Shop on Short St. Brownwood, TX. I have to be honest. This is a composite of two images, (Street Scene and Moon). Street scene was taken Nov 14th, Moon was taken Nov 13th. Is it cheating? Nope, just my artistic interpretation.
This was taken Sunday evening the 13th from Thrill Hill, Brownwood, TX. Going to try some different locations tonight. (Nikon 7100 with Kit lens 55 to 300 mm with 2x extender, adjusted in Lightroom CC.)
WOW, it's hard to believe that I haven't posted for nearly two months. It hasn't been due to a lack of efforts related to photography.
During September our local Photography Group decided to make October, 2016 "Photography Month" for our community. Every weekend in October had a special event related to Photography. Many hours were expended for planning and executing each of our 5 events. Participating in Scott Kelby's World Wide Photowalk, Opening of our annual photography exhibit, A day of providing mentoring photography to any and all interested individuals in the community, Having a guest speaker on travel and photography, and last, but, not least holding a Swap, Trade, and Buy Market for photography/computer equipment. All of these events were open and free to the public.
Our biggest event was our 5th Annual Photo Group Exhibit. The theme this year was "All About Texas" We had over 200 guest for the Opening Reception that included a Texas BBQ, and live entertainment. Thanks to our sponsors and many volunteers the exhibit was a huge success.
While all of this was happening, I still had to prepare and print images for four separate regional competitions/exhibits. I'm happy to report that I received two second place and an honorable mention in two of the exhibits and my entry was selected for submission to the worldwide photowalk.
Needless to say it was a busy time, but time well spent in our efforts to promote photography and the visual arts in our community. Now it's time to get back to what I love the most, making photographs.
