The Box End Watersports summer event, organised by Steve Newman, was held on July 13th.
The images are now up and have been shared with the Box End club.

How do you give titles to your images?
Mostly I tend not to give it much thought and go for the obvious, describing what is in the picture, e.g. Blue Flower or Sunset or, heaven forbid, Approaching Storm
But the title is more important than just a way to identify the image and I should give it more thought than I do afford it.
Competition judges will sometimes mention the appropriateness or otherwise of a title, or even ridicule it. They will also take more interest in the title if they are having a problem understanding an image.
John Paul Caponigro has recently covered this subject in two short articles. His second one “How to Title Your Images” provides a decent checklist of title styles that can help you create an image title. Also see his first article How I Title My Images
Should an image presented in a club competition warrant a different style of title to one you wish to sell in a gallery? Discuss.

Members are encouraged to share some of their images from each summer event.
The latest event for images for Box End closes 27th July. If you have some images to share please do upload them now.
Meanwhile, why not enjoy a butcher’s with those taken at the earlier events
Just a reminder. We have a Photo Entry album set up for each organised summer event. Currently, these are for Woburn, Kimbolton and Tottenhoe Knoll, with Box End and Kathy Brown’s Garden planned for later this month.
For Canon camera users only: get 2 months free Adobe Photography Plan (i.e. the Lightroom and Photoshop subscription) worth £20.
This offer applies both to existing Adobe subscribers (it appears to suspend your monthly payments for 2 months) and those not already using the apps (the latter effectively get 2 months free trial)
** CPS stands for “Canon Professional Services” but as far as I know anyone who registers a Canon camera can join CPS at the basic level and take this free offer.
Please ignore this test post

Albums, Gallery and Portfolios
Often, after a “photo shoot”, we would like to share our best shots with our family, friends or clients.
For Lightroom (LR) users who subscribe to the Adobe Photography Plan there are three included ways to quickly do this and, as it’s already included, it’s free.
Magnum Photos was established after WWII, in 1947, by Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson and two others, to reflect their independent natures as both people and photographers – the idiosyncratic mix of reporter and artist that continues to define Magnum to this day.
Magnum allows fine photographers the ability to work outside the formulas of magazine journalism, often covering wars, conflicts, famine etc.
The next Camera to Photoshop Workflow Zoom presentation is scheduled for this Friday, Feb 12th, at 3:30pm
Martin (an excellent photographer) has kindly offered us some of his images to process. Bruce will be demonstrating how he would post-process Martin’s image(s) using Lightroom and Photoshop
