This event will be hosted by Professional Photographers, Dan Ballard and Joseph Roybal, aiming to instruct and offer insight into Nik Software Silver Efex Pro and clean website design. This will also be a great time for us to get to better know the group and have a great time sharing stories over eats/drinks. This will be a free instructional seminar on Silver Efex Pro and the importance of clean website design. Dan will work through an image or two of his out of his award winning portfolio showing how he selects the strongest image and edits them in Silver Efex Pro all the way to the final and finished image ready for print and web.
Joseph will follow up Dan's discussion by going over the importance of a clean and de-cluttered website and how to achieve this by focusing the viewer on only your best work and eliminating distracting elements on the page. Developing a critical eye is crucial when you are displaying your images to the world and having a non-distracting website will help you achieve this.
