Derek Doar was guest speaker at the club last Monday and personally speaking he really opened my mind to a whole new world of image processing. We were treated not only to some fantastic prints, but we were also given a glimpse into his way of thinking about producing them. Derek uses the Nix software as a major part of his image processing and although I have had this for over a year now I learned new ways of using these tools to produce the images that I want. I have used some of Derek's advice to practice on the images below and I am pleased with the results. So, many thanks to Derek for a wonderful evening, my only concern is that the other club members present will also be taking on board his techniques. Ah well, we'll see what the judge thinks at the next Competition!
