Digital Photography SIG
This SIG meets on the fourth Tuesday of every month at 7.p.m.
Taking pictures has never been easier. Make use of your Virtual Darkroom and join us!
We play with digital photos from cameras or film scanners. We try to improve them with good software,
and then display them either in print or on screen. It's lots of fun and we all learn together!

Let's Talk Adobe with Chris Bryant

Tuesday, August 28, 2018

Most of you have heard about (and maybe use) Adobe Photoshop. An extension to Photoshop is Adobe Illustrator. Adobe Ilustrator is graphic-driven software used primarily for creating vector graphics. Developed alongside with Adobe Photoshop as a companion product, Adobe Illustrator is used for creating logos, graphics, cartoons and fonts for the photo-realistic layouts of Adobe Photoshop.

Christopher Bryant is a local educator at Lafayette High School where he teaches classes tailored toward the graphic arts. He has obtained three degrees from the University of Kentucky which includes his bachelors in Arts and Arts Education as well as his Masters in Education. Christopher has been an active artist in the digital community outside of teaching. Previously, he has showcased a variety of work throughout the community, photographed for various private clients, created album and poster art for local musicians, and is currently working with a well renown top designer.

Chris has been asked to share his knowledge about industry standard programs in an everchanging digital work environment. His skill and knowledge of the Adobe programs have helped him as well as former students to compete with other modern designers. His goal for today is to share his knowledge of these advanced programs and break the stereotypes associated with their difficulty and complexity.

Our photo contest this month will be "In Need of Repair". Come up with an innovative picture and email it to no later than August 27, 2018.

Hope to see you at CKCS on August 28 at 7 PM. Bring a friend.


Thanks for all your support!
