Shutter-Buds on Meetup.com, a local photography group, and she has a knack for putting together some great meetups. If you are a local hobbyist photographer and don't know Sue or her group I strongly suggest checking her out.
This past Saturday she, and a small crew of volunteers, put together a fantastic event featuring the very talented and inspirational, New York based fashion photographer, Lindsay Adler. Miss Adler is a Canon Explorer of Light photographer, educator and just an all around really great person. She is open and sharing and can probably inspire a dead person to get up and start dancing. She is that good.
Trinity on Main, located in New Britain, CT, and is a church that has been converted to a multi use event space. While still operating as a church for the United Methodist Church, they expanded to serve as a cultural center to foster the arts in their local community. It's a great place to see theatrical productions, musicians, operas and so much more.

Just recently I found myself in a situation where I couldn't decide which of two images was the keeper and which was the second. In the end I decided they would both be my seconds. Here's what I mean.

I have a love/hate relationship with watermarks on photos but I know there is a place for everything. While my opinions are my own I also realize that not everyone has the artistic skill to create anything beyond a simple text watermark.
Adobe's Lightroom program has a very flexible watermarking utility that allows the creation of simple text based watermarks. For anything fancier Lightroom requires a pre-designed PNG file with a transparent alpha channel.
If you are not familiar with alpha channels, they are see-through layers that allow a background to come through the non-logo areas when overlaid on a photo. While making these is relatively easy for a knowledgeable designer they can be tricky for the novice. Fortunately there is a great online tool that can make that whole process as simple as one, two, three.
