Creative Photo Display

At the Creativity SIG in September 2022 discussion centred around CREATIVE ways of taking photos. See AUSOM News, Sept 2022, page 29

Members were encouraged to enter their Creative photos into the ASCCA Digital Photo competition — see details AUSOM News, Sept 2022, page 20.

Finally, we looked at creative ways photos might be displayed. There is a PDF available showing the many display examples.

Beginners Series – Procreate

Procreate has introduced new Beginners Series for those starting out with Procreate and the iPad.

An excellent place to start exploring art and animation using an iPad and Apple Pencil. Getting started with anything new is challenging, but this step-by-step walk-through makes learning easy and fun.

It is currently a free four-part video series. I have just completed working through the 2nd video and have enjoyed learning something new at each step. If you follow along while shown the various steps involved, completing the four lessons will leave you with three unique artworks and one animation you will be proud to show to your friends.

The Beginners Series resources were made available for download on July 25 on Procreate’s website (https://education.procreate.art/beginners-series) and viewable at Procreate’s YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/Procreate).

‘Photos’ SIG – About

photos-sig@ausom.net.au

A new special interest group for 2022, the AUSOM “Photos SIG”, will introduce and master the Apple application, “Photos”.

“Photos” comes built-in to all Macs, iPads and iPhones. Whilst we will be concentrating on the desktop version, hints & tips for the iPad & iPhone run parallel much of the time.

In a breakthrough for our SIG, we’re going to spend half our ZOOM time showing novices the joys of “Photos”, and the second half of our ZOOM time working with the more experienced “Photos” users.

Of course, everyone is welcome to attend the entire SIG! See the website or AUSOM News for login details.

Monthly on ZOOM at our main meetings at 11am in Room 4. See you there!
