In the Spotlight
by Karen Jones
Join the Camera Club of Oak Ridge for a special workshop on post-processing techniques using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. Karen Jones, an award-winning photographer and member of CCOR, will use photographs submitted by workshop participants to show how she would process a photograph to enhance its final outcome. Karen will demonstrate both basic and advanced post-processing techniques such as use of layers, masking techniques, levels adjustments and application of textures. As Ansel Adams said, “You don’t take a photograph, you make it.”
The workshop will take place from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 20, 2017 at the CCOR’s usual meeting room at Roane State (City Room). Participants may submit up to 2 straight-out-of-camera RAW or jpeg files to Karen at firstname.lastname@example.org and Karen will choose 5-10 photos to present at the workshop. When you submit images to Karen, please indicate in the subject line “CCOR Workshop File.”
Special Bonus! Remember this photo from the CCOR 2016 Salon? Karen will demonstrate how she took and processed this image, which took First Place in the Digital Creative Development Division.
Have a photograph that you think could be a challenge for Karen? Maybe an image you would like to see someone else interpret? Join us for this workshop sure to improve your important post-processing skills!

Knoxville Street Photography
"To me a great photographer is one that expresses what one feels in the deepest sense about what is being photographed." With each picture he takes Don tries to include the history and stories about the places he photographs. He can be followed on Facebook at Recreational Photography. He will discuss gear he uses, how to visualize the photo to express the sense of feeling for the subject, and how to approach and talk to people on the street to take their photo. He will use his photos as examples in his presentation.
