Making A/V Presentations for Competition and Fun
George “Hutch” Hutchison

George “Hutch” Hutchison, QPSA, DFS4C has been recognized as a Gold and Silver Medal recipient in the PSA Projected Image Division (PID) Photo Essay Contest and also enjoys creating similar presentations for family, friends and memories. His presentation will include ideas for finding resources, organizing, sharing and building a slide show that will keep the audience engaged and wow competition judges.

Bio:
George “Hutch” Hutchison’s love for photography was inspired at a very early age by the magic of his father’s camera and darkroom. The advent of more advanced film cameras in the 1980’s and digital photography in the 1990’s further stimulated and broadened his interest. He primarily shoots for his own pleasure with work ranging across a broad spectrum of genre. He particularly enjoys landscape, action/sports and abstract photography.
  

“Hutch” is an active member of the Channel Islands Professional Photographers (CIPPA), Thousand Oaks Photo Group (TOPG) and serves on the Board of Directors for the Southern California Council of Camera Clubs (S4C). Over the years he has received numerous awards and recognition for his photography. Most recently as a Top 10 photographer at the 2022 Professional Photographers of California Competition and PermaJet USA award for best black & white print.

An Introduction to Luminosity Masks
How to Make and Use Them in Photoshop and Elements
Bob Benson

Luminosity masks are the new buzzword in post processing, but in reality it is just another tool to consider. We will look at how to create and how to use them as adjustment masks. This is primarily best for Photoshop users, but I will show you a work around for Elements people.

Bio:
Bob Benson, FPSA EPSA, has held various positions with the Photographic Society of America, including a four year term as Divisions Vice President. Previously, he started the Interclub Competition for the older Electronic Imaging Division, then later, started the Interclub Competition for PID. Besides some other PSA related activities, he wrote an ongoing column for the Journal on Lightroom®. Since online judging has become common, he judges for international exhibitions and clubs in other areas.

At the local level, he has been on the Board for the Chicago Area Camera Clubs Association since 2001, serving in many capacities, including President. He judges and presents at local clubs and for seminars on a regular basis, providing education programs and training for new judges. Through CACCA, he has earned major awards, including the Wanda Christl Award (photography excellence), Stinson Award (volunteerism), the Creativity Award, and holds a TOPS in color, mono, and creative prints.

“My biggest passion is prints and printing; there is nothing like seeing a well-crafted print. Back in the darkroom days, I was never satisfied with my B&W prints. Digital has changed all that, allowing the control I never was able to achieve before. Landscapes are my preference, but I am willing to try anything, as I see that as the best way to learn.”

Creating PhotoEssays

Creating PhotoEssays-from concept to creation & presentation
Lance Gitter

One of the most powerful methods of sharing one’s photography is through Audio-Video presentations. Creating a PhotoEssay incorporating both stills and videos is like making a movie or documentary. It involves planning, from one’s original idea or concept, organizing a storyline, preparing images and video clips to show your best ones, and learning to use the various software tools to create a polished show. This presentation will cover the approach to A/V creation and presentation, and will include numerous award winning shows that I have created over the years to demonstrate and showcase the concepts and methods used to create them.

Bio:
Lance Gitter is a well known photographer in the Greater Toronto area and is a nationally certified CAPA judge as well as an accredited judge with the Ontario Council of Camera Clubs, which in 2016 presented him with their inaugural service recognition award. He helped set up the online submission and judging software (known as “EntryWizard”) for CAPA (Canadian Association of Photographic Art) and is a member of the CAPA competition team, specifically in the role of “EntryWizard Specialist”. He is an honourary life member of both the Richmond Hill Camera Club and the Toronto Digital Photo Clubs where he chaired competitions for many years and was awarded the distinction of FCAPA by the national photo organization. He is an award winning photographer in both still photography and in photo essay production. He enjoys all genres of photography but his forte and passion is his creativity.
