Last month’s presentation on “Layers with Textures” by Cathy Nocera was enjoyed by over 45 people. She enriched our photography with her warmth, humility and knowledge.

For our next slide show in April, prepare up to 4 images that have been processed using Layers with Textures and send to dpi-wwshop@naples.net. Include a brief description of your technique. Instructions for both beginners and intermediates will be sent soon. On April 4, we will feature Jennifer Brinkman, an award-winning photographer & DPI-SIG member, who will share her process for taking Seascapes and Coastal Scenes. In addition, we will conduct photo critiques, so if you plan to attend, send your photos to be critiqued to dpi-wwshop@naples.net. All participants in the Women’s Workshop meetings are invited to use the Facebook site. The address is: Facebook.com/groups/dpsisigwomen (yes, it is misspelled!) On it, we share resources, such as great websites or upcoming photo events, and share photos & videos, etc. Remember, all DPI-SIG members are welcome to attend the workshop. Submit any questions to Christine Cook at : dpi-wwshop@naples.net.

This month’s Glossary term : “Color Space” Every device that produces, measures, or captures color has its own way of reproducing all the colors in the visible spectrum, which is known as its color space. The most common color spaces in digital photography are Adobe RGB and (Hewlett-Packard and Microsoft) sRGB. The former has a broader color gamut (range of colors/tones), while sRGB has a smaller color gamut. There is a third color space, ProPhoto RGB, that was developed by Kodak, that’s available in post processing software that has an even broader color gamut.

Last month’s Glossary term: “UD, LD and ED Glass (Low-Dispersion, Extra-Low-Dispersion and Ultra-Low-Dispersion Glass)” All these terms refer to a glass type used in lenses. These formulated glasses correct the path of light rays as they pass through the lens, making all colors in the color spectrum focus at the same point. Lenses constructed with these types of glass eliminate or lessen the occurrence of aberrations and some types of artifacts.

Please check the glossary on our web site for more digital photography terms!

Next month’s theme is: “A B A N D O N E D & D I S C A R D E D” Members are eligible to submit 6 pictures or a 2 minute video to: dpi-theme@naples.net. Please follow the procedure for renaming and resizing photos. Refer to: dpi-sig.org and click on “Topic of the Month”. Please follow these guidelines: Use your name only and the order number you want the images shown. Title is NOT needed! E.g., John Doe_01, John Doe_02, etc. Please do NOT send zipped files. If you like to plan ahead, theme topics for the entire year are listed on our web site.
