WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK  ALL MEMBERS AND OUR PARTNERS FOR THEIR PATIENCE AS WE NAVIGATE THE TRANSITION BACK TO IN-PERSON MEETINGS AT ACADIA HALL. IN PERSON MEETINGS, PAIRED WITH ELEMENTS OF A VIRTUAL MEETING WILL REPRESENT OUR BEST EFFORT FOR A HYBRID FORMAT MOVING FORWARD. 
The SPC Executive is looking forward to seeing our membership back to Acadia Hall and Online as we continue to move forward through our 34th season this Wednesday evening!

Our projection team has been continuing to refine our broadcast setup and believe we have everything ready for our next Hybrid meeting. 

Due to some challenges with the scheduling of speakers and the convenient timing of the latest release of Lightroom Classic (12.0.1), We intend to spend some time with the new release of Lightroom and explore some of the new features that many have been waiting for.

Mark Klaamas and Chris Briand will take us through some usage examples for the new features and answer some Lightroom questions if there is time to spare.
 
We will be discussing:
– LR Classic 12.0 vs 12.0.1
– Content Aware Remove
– Healing Tool Enhancements
– Enhanced Masking Capabilities (Background & Object Selection)
– People Selection Masking (Portrait adaptive presets)
– Applying New Masking Functions to Portraits and Landscape Images
– User Interface Changes / Additions
– Upgrading your Lightroom Catalog
– General Catalog functions that you may not be using.
– Some quick workflows for Black & White conversion directly in Lightroom

Shawn Wyrozub has agreed to speak to us about some of his recent adventures into a fresh experience of photographing local horse racing.

Our meeting will START AT 7:00 PM – Doors will open at 6:30PM.
For those who have not had the opportunity to Join us in person, we meet at Acadia Hall in Lower Sackville

As always, we will present regular News and Club Business, along with our regular updates to round out our evening.
