Capture One Training

Join ASMP Tucson, Tuesday April 21st at 10am, Arizona time, for a Zoom event with Kevin Robinson of Black Dress Photography® on use of Capture One post-production/editing software.

Are you are just starting with, wondering about purchasing, or simply wanting to see what Capture One has to offer? Then this is the place to be, as Kevin starts you on the path to working with Capture One.

Beginning with navigating and customizing the Capture One interface, understanding the difference between sessions and catalogs, importing your photos, and more 101 to get you started. This will be the first in a series of working with Capture One, so be sure to join us! 

Presentation duration = 1 to 1.5 hour Q&A session = 30 minutes

No RSVP required and this is free of charge.

* It would be best for you to participate on a computer versus a tablet or phone, as he will be sharing his screen and you’ll want to see the details.

Parts 2 and 3 will be on Tuesday May 5 and Tuesday May 19 at 10 am Arizona time.

By the way, there will be new meeting login identifications for each of the three instructional classes.

We are avoiding “Zoom trolls” by not publishing the login info publicly. Access the info in three ways: (1) look in your emails for an email containing this info (2) look on the ASMP Tucson Facebook group (if you have joined that group; it is closed to the public. You can request membership) or (3) email the ASMP Tucson board for it.

Thank you.

ASMP Tucson Round-table Discussion During the Covid-19 Shutdown

Thank you to all who participated in our Covid-19 Round-table support session via Zoom last week. We hope it was beneficial, whether that be for the resources shared or the moral and emotional support provided.

We plan to do more of those, as needed.

Be well and hang in there everyone.

For those who planned on attending the March 25 Chris Callis lecture, I have removed the post containing the info, because the event needs to be postponed for the safety of our presenter, who is in the demographic at risk for contracting the Coronavirus.

We will re-post the revised flyer when we can nail down a new date.

Thank you for your understanding.

ASMP Tucson hosts Mary Virginia Swanson for lecture on social media – Feb. 5, 2020

By Martha Lochert | Posted: January 7th, 2020 | No comments

SAVE THE DATE: Feb. 5, 2020 with Mary Virginia Swanson

The always popular Mary Virginia Swanson will be giving a lecture on Wed., Feb. 5th at 5:30 pm at Steven Meckler’s 121 S. 4th Ave. studio entitled: “Social Media in the Age of Instagram.”

Centro Garage is very close by and by 5:30, there may be lots of available parking, but this is during the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show, so parking may be tight. You may want to simply choose public transit (bus or street car) to get into downtown for the event.

We always have a half-hour of social time before the actual talk begins, so if you have to scramble for parking, you’ll have that buffer.
