Meeting Minutes from September and next meeting Oct 12th

Everything and everyone is talking about AI.  Will there be a need for jobs with AI?  Will AI replace this or that.  It is quite the time that we are living in.  Why am I talking about AI?  While for a long time in Photoshop, I wished that I could replace or fill in some not so nice looking grass.  While the time has come.  I updated my Photoshop and they now have add Generative Fill.  All you have to do is select an area of your photo and type in what you want to add, flowers, grass, whatever.  Then in literately 10 seconds, you have 3 new options.  These options already have shadows and look like they fit right into the image.  It is really incredible addition.  They also added the ability to change a vertical image into a hori

Meeting Minutes from August and next meeting 9.14.2023

Meeting Minutes from last month,  Myrna said they looked at images from Gary's trip to Africa.  They had issues with the old Vista laptop.  The good news is I found a laptop at the office and will donate that to camera club cause.   Next meeting is Sept. 14th, Thursday 6PM at Whitefish Community Library. Jeff and I flew into Benchmark, on the East side of the mountains.  There were no fire restrictions over there and we received an inch of rain.  We were stuck there an extra day and half because of the rain.   Check out our VIDEO> Check out these images that Daniel Kordan took from Peru of the Wave down there.  Incredible shots!  

Meeting minutes from July 23 and next meeting 8.10.2023

 Next meeting is 8.10.2023 2nd Thursday of August at Whitefish Community Library, 6pm. The July meeting was a great time to come in from the hail and thunderstorms and see a nice variety of strong  photos. Frank captured a stair-stepped waterfall and an antique truck. Dee showed native plants from hiking in the rain in the East Pioneers. Sidney's Colorado photos had an old time flair, including black and white images of horses and cowboys at full speed. Nelson came back to club, after many years. I'm sorry I can't show you a sampling of the wildlife photography from Brock who is visiting from Florida.  We gathered around his tablet to see stunning in flight images of birds, and other action poses amd portraits of birds, insects, and wildlife from Florida, Alaska, and all over the world. --Dee
