Speaker: Mr. Cliff Kimura
Cliff will give a hands-on workshop on post processing using LR or the Adobe camera raw  (ACR) editor, part of the Photoshop system. Emphasis is on the histogram as the starting point for editing an image.  He will show the advantages of shooting in raw vs jpg. as evidenced demonstrating how much you can recover shooting in raw. Members are invited to bring their laptops to learn step-by-step techniques.   He will have examples that he can load on to your laptops. They should have either LR or PS loaded, although if they can translate, they could follow along with MAC aperture.  Please come at 5:40PM, so Cliff can load the files on your computers, we will start promptly at 6:00pm to cover everything and answer questions along the way.

Cliff Kimura, began in photography in 1970 with a Canon Canonet, progressing up to a Canon F1.  He gained knowledge of the darkroom taking classes at El Camino Junior College in Torrance California in the early 1980’s.  He stopped taking photographs until the development of digital photography in the late 1990’s and really fell in love with it with the development of a program called Photoshop.
Self-taught until taking courses from the University of Hawaii’s Pacific New Media program about two years ago, Cliff discovered how much more he could learn, and is now in the final stages of their Digital Imaging Certificate program and hopes to get his certificate sometime this year.  His photographs placed in the Maui County Fair Photo Contest three years in a row; appeared last year in the Pacific New Media photo exhibition; and currently appears in the Pacific New Media blog and monthly newsletter.  Cliff is always willing to share his knowledge gained through his travels through digital photography.
