October presentations (all free): workflow and polar travel photography

On the evening of Thursday the 13th of October I will be talking with the Corio Bay Camera Club in Geelong about my image processing workflow (the chief software tools I use are Photoshop and Lightroom, but the talk's about more than just what the software can do). I'll be working with images from my recent travels.

Local camera clubs (or photographic societies, or whatever name they choose) are always welcoming of visitors: they hope you'll stick around and become members. So if you'll be in the area on the 13th, please drop by and introduce yourself! The meeting starts at 7:30pm.

Also, I've got several other club presentations this month: on Monday the 10th I'll be visiting the Essendon Camera Club to provide critique on their photographs, and on Tuesday the 25th I'll be presenting a slideshow and commentary at Williamstown Camera Club about my Arctic and Antarctic travels (several Williamstown members came on my 2011 Antarctic and African LuminOdysseys).

Update your clocks. ALL of them!

For those of us in south-east Australia, Daylight Savings Time has just kicked in, with the time jumping forwards an hour at 2 AM this morning. If we're lucky our computers and phones will have automatically adjusted, but other devices have no concept of timezone so will need to be adjusted by hand.

Having your clocks correct makes a lot of things easier, especially for photographers.
