|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!

On April 25th we have a guest speaker – Photographer and Bourbon enthusiast Carol Peachee. Carol will talk to us about her adventures in photography and old abandoned distilleries. From Carol’s webpage…”In The Birth of Bourbon, award-winning photographer Carol Peachee takes readers on an unforgettable tour of lost distilleries as well as facilities undergoing renewal such as the famous Old Taylor and James. E. Pepper distilleries in Lexington Kentucky. This beautiful book also includes spaces that well-known brands, including Maker’s Mark Woodford Reserve, Four Roses, and Buffalo Trace, have preserved as homage to their rich histories. Using a technique known as high-dynamic-range imaging - a process that produces rich saturation, intensely clarified details, and a full spectrum of light-. Peachee reveals the vibrant life lingering in artifacts from worn cypress fermenting tubs to extravagant copper stills. This lavish celebration of bourbon’s heritage will delight whiskey aficionados, history buffs, and art lovers alike.” Carol will have a slide show and will talk about her book – The Birth of Bourbon published in 2015 by University Press of KY.
