Because the library will be closed through at least next January or February, and because it appears meeting rooms are scarce around Kingwood at the moment, we are not going to be able to continue our workshops for a while. We promise to resume as soon as we can find a reliable location. That may mean we will have to wait until we can get back into the library.
A solar eclipse is coming to North America on August 21st, 2017!
This is truly an historic event and a wonderful opportunity to view one of nature’s most stunning displays. Mr. Aaron Clevenson of the Greater Houston Astronomical Coalition will assist us get ready for this extraordinary phenomenon. The presentation will be at the Kingwood Community Center on Wednesday, August 2nd from 10am – 11:30am.
All ages are welcome, free of charge.
Kingwood Community Center is located at 4102 Rustic Woods Dr. Kingwood, TX 77345 – Next to the new HEB!
The attached document covers most of what we discussed in the Post Processing SIG in December 2015 on workflow automation in Lightroom. Our January SIG registration can be found on this page.
There are an amazing number tools to help you speed up repetitive tasks. If you find yourself doing the same thing over and over again, then there are tools to help you.
As you read the document and try out the various tools take note that I personally believe the most important thing you can do is to organize the way you name your files, your folder structure, and your use of ratings, colors, and keywords. If you have a plan, and use it consistently, you will find using Lightroom a lot easier. In addition automation tools like Smart Collections will work for you to help you sort through your image library.
Attached are the presentations used in the Photography 101 series this summer (2015). They include the material used for the Lightroom Library Module (organizing your images), Know Your Camera, and Creating Art. We plan to have one more basic session in the Fall on editing in Lightroom, using the Develop Module.

In addition to Special Interest Groups and Field trips we occasionally offer workshops on various topics. While primarily for the benefit of our members, workshops are open to the public as way of returning something to our community, and hopefully enticing new members to join.
We encourage any of our members with expertise in any area of Photography to consider putting together a workshop. Just contact us and we’ll help you get going.
All our events, whether Field Trips, Workshops, or SIGS require online registration because of limited space, and to allow the organizer to better communicate with those planning to come.
