Editing Timelapse Photographs Class - Marie Reay Teaching Centre - 9am - 3 hours
A timelapse video usually is made by hundreds of images. But after the shooting, what we need to do is to adjust them in LR and LRT, readjust their parameters, synchronise their settings and export them with the best quality. So for this class, we will continue our timelapse study based on the materials we collect from the prerequisite meetup, refine and improve our knowledge about timelapse and put more post-processing skills and tricks during our study. Finally, Jackie will introduce more basic knowledge about hyper-lapse and motion-lapse for intermediate members.

Prepare For Your Stacking Meetup - Scrivener Dam lookout - 6pm - 2 hours
Photo stacking is a pretty useful technique, especially in post-processing for landscape photographers. But usually, the successful usage of this technique needs good shooting skills to ensure the needed Raw format images are captured with suitable parameters.

This meetup will be a prerequisite class, which will introduce several types of stacking, their advantages, smart usage and how to shoot separately. And for the next workshop, Jackie will tell you how to use the photo we captured to do the exposure stacking, focus stacking and how to use stacking to denoise your image.

Both hubby and I really enjoyed the experience. Despite being a windy day it didn't take away from several pleasant hours of learning new tips, techniques and ideas, thanks to Ijumma. Being a small, supportive group really helped too. We completed this session feeling inspired and ready to test out our new found skills.

Really enjoyed it - although I got very cold by the end! Tutor was very helpful, personable and knowledgeable. My aim was to use 'manual' and I did, with his guidance, and came home with some very encouraging images.
