September 11th, 2012- Education and Training: Analyzing your Photo for Common Flaws that can be Fixed with Sandi Croan
Join Sandi Croan for an evening of analyzing photographs that don't quite make the grade but can be improved with some magic through software. We have all taken photos that we wished could be re-taken, but that's not possible. These photos fall into the gray area of not to be 
tossed out, but by some clever post-processing can be restored to life. Maybe they contain just minor flaws and so Sandi will attempt to resurrect these photos with some clever approaches. Sandi will be using Adobe's Lightroom and a few plugins on a dozen selected photos. 

Please join us for what will be an interesting evening with one of our more renowned photographers.

Sandi began her photography journey seriously in 2003 by taking Wayne Wolfenberger's Photography 101 and 102 through Fairfax County Adult Rec. At Wayne's recommendation, she joined NVPS in March of 2004 and has been inspired, grown tremendously and met many wonderful people.

Sandi has won numerous competitions and awards for her fine art photographs. In 2008, she was awarded Photographer of the Year and Print of the Year by the Northern Virginia Photographic Society and she won both Best in Show and 2nd Place at the juried Meadowlark Photo Expo in Vienna, VA. Her images have been selected to be put on permanent display at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens and the Joseph Miller Center for the Photographic Arts. She has been juried into numerous art shows including; the prestigious VisArts of Rockville Exhibitions, Fairfax County Council of the Arts Show (Unlocked), and The Fraser Gallery International Photography Exhibition. Sandi was a featured artist in Elan Magazine, and her photograph "Blue Lagoon" was on the cover. She has also had photographs published in other local and national magazines.
