Projects For The Innings & Outings Monthly Slideshow

As it will be a while before we can get together for NPC outings, the Outings Committee has come up with a few projects to keep you engaged and keep us connected during these unsettled times. Hopefully you will find something each month that interests you and you will submit your creations to the Innings and Outings Slideshow.

April

1. Images of Spring Awakening

2. Change an image from colour to black and white

I am including a few videos that you may find helpful regarding editing and thinking in terms of black and white.

3. The World As I See It Today - document the times (safely)

4. Create a photo that somewhat imitates a work of art. Show an image of the original piece and your creation. You do not need to limit yourself to using just 3 items and, of course, post processing is acceptable.
