Although it was a chilly evening, we had fun capturing the activities at the Nathan Phillips Square. The atmosphere was great with cheery people enjoying the Holly Jolly Midway rides. Here are a few pix from last night's Meetup session.

Join us at Nathan Phillips Square for an evening of low-light photography fun. It’s the holiday season and Nathan Phillips Square is transformed into a visual delight. See the 60 foot Christmas tree, bustling ice rink and 525,000 festive LED lights.
Low-light and night photography presents unique challenges and we will show you the ins and outs of how to get your shot. You'll learn techniques on how to dial in exposure, get sharp focus, control white balance, and create interesting light-trails and ghostly effects. Night is indeed a magical time for photographers as colours are more intense and offer a great opportunity for creativity.
We like to keep this workshop fun and enjoyable. Put on your long johns and bring your camera for 2 hours of creative image making!
Don't forget to bring:
• Camera + lens
• Extra batteries
• Sturdy tripod (optional but recommended)
• Dress appropriately

Adobe Lightroom has become the standard for post image processing. We've all used it but how many of us really know how to use it properly?
If you're tired of blindly pushing and pulling those adjustment sliders without really knowing what they do, this session for you.
We'll spend 3-hours using the DEVELOP MODULE deconstructing the tools used with many examples.
We'll show you how to develop your images using techniques such as:
• optimizing white balance to set the mood
• Colours adjustments
• Sharpness to make your images pop
• Targeted custom adjustments to bring out the essence of the image to align with your vision
By the end you'll have the confidence to process your images from RAW capture to the finished product that you can print or share online.
We'll meet at 215 Spadina Ave. at the beautiful Centre for Social Innovation space. Coffee and tea will be provided.
