May 10th – I Can Do (on my phone) What You Can Do in PS and Lr Better by LoisAnn Shannon

Cookeville Camera Club member, LoisAnn Shannon will give a presentation during May’s club meeting. Our meeting will be held at Stonecom, One Stonecom Way, Cookeville.

LoisAnn Shannon is a photographer based in Chattanooga TN. She has years of experience shooting local ballet, theater, and opera performances. LoisAnn is also a digital artist who loves to take photos of nature and local attractions. She enjoys traveling and snapping photos of her various adventures.

In her spare time, LoisAnn loves to be “by the water”, whether it’s swimming at the beach, relaxing at a lake, or rowing on the river. LoisAnn is also a fan of opera and ballet, and has enjoyed practicing and performing ballet for several years. LoisAnn enjoys classical music, and played cello in the Chattanooga Community Orchestra for four years.

It is said that THE BEST camera is the one you have with you and more often than not, it’s the camera  you have in your pocket or purse. Today, using editing apps, not only can one take good camera phone photos, they can be edited on the spot and posted on location. There’s something very satisfying about taking shots and editing them before you even leave the location, rather than getting home with a few hundred photos to cull, edit and post [which often doesn’t happen]. Using phone apps, beginning with Snapseed, we will discover that many common tasks often accomplished in Photoshop can be done on one’s phone [sometimes more easily and with fewer steps]. Hence the title, “I Can Do (on my phone) What You Can Do in PS and Lr Better”.
