Our presenters, for this meeting, are Nigel Faeron of Junction Design & Communication (http://www.junctiondesign.ca/) and Juergen Weiland (http://www.flickr.com/photos/juergenweiland). Their program will be a “hands on” tutorial demonstrating the processing of one photo from start to finish in Photoshop. It is suggested you bring along your laptops and power cords so you can follow along during the process. In this way you will get the most from the demonstration. The program will be approximately 45 minutes.
A recent Graphic Design graduate (McKenzie College, Moncton, NB), Juergen Weiland has also accumulated more than two decades of experience in the fields of sales, marketing and management. Past positions in his native Germany included that of insurance salesman, music school office manager and performing artist representative. Juergen's design activities began with the creation of event posters and evolved to include promotional materials for the artists he represented. Following his move to Canada in 2003, Juergen co-founded the award winning Chocolate River Conservatory of Music where his artistic eye and high quality standards are evident in both the school's interior design and its marketing materials. Juergen has always loved photography, and with attending the Focus Camera Club he is looking forward to learn a lot more about it.
Think about the photo before and after, never during. The secret is to take your time. You mustn’t go too fast. The subject must forget about you. Then, however, you must be very quick. So, if you miss the picture, you’ve missed it. So what? - Henri Cartier-Bresson, “The Camera - LIFE Library of Photography”, page: 214
