The DIG Western Centre meets quarterly at Merryfield Hall, Copse Lane, Ilton, near Taunton, TA19 9HG.
ADOBE ROADSHOW 24TH MARCH 2013
DIG Western Centre held a very successful Adobe Roadshow, where our presenter, David Mallows, guided us skilful through sessions on Colour Management, Photoshop CS6 and Lightroom4. Most of us came home with our heads buzzing with new techniques to try on our own work. One attendee wrote afterwards - 'My brain is on overload. Brilliant speaker, wonderful organisation, and lots of good friends to talk to in the breaks.'
With 130 attendees the hall was bustling with energy. 50 individuals bought along their amazingly good prints to go up on the WoW (wall of work) appreciation stands. The prints were closely examined by our speaker and both trade stand companies, who individually presented their prizes. Attendees were also able to vote for their favourite overall winner, this being Hoi an Man by Julian Shaw.
The Peak Imaging prize of a £30 voucher was won by Ray Yardley with Fotospeed gave a pack of 'print your own cards + envelopes' to Peter Phillips for Old Swanage Pier Andy Beel presented a pack of mount board to Pauline Watling for Dark Times.
Other chosen images that caught the public eye were from Sheila Haycox, Denis Madge, Derek Thompson, and Roy Stone.
We thank our three sponsors, Vince Cater of Fotospeed, Andy Beel and Peak Imaging. The former two had tables at the event, thereby giving us the opportunity to go home with lots a lovely goodies from our day out.
The team of volunteer helpers are to be thanked for their support. Without you we couldn't have put on such a great day.
