April Meeting – Alan Perlman LUMINAR and the Future of Imaging Software

Join us Wednesday, April 17 with guest speaker, Alan Perlman.
LUMINAR & the Future of Imaging Software
Luminar is an alternative, inexpensive, nondestructive photo editor that minimizes the complexity of image editing for both amateur and pro users. Whereas Photoshop and Lightroom involve a steep learning curve, Luminar provides tools for similar editing results with a much easier to understand interface. Recently updated to include asset management capabilities, this simplified yet powerful approach is indicative of the direction in which all image editing programs are now moving.

04APRIL2019Alan Perlman has been a working professional photographer for more than four decades, specializing in corporate communications, executive and business portraiture and special events of virtually every description. His client list includes numerous well-known companies and organizations including American Express, Greyhound Lines, AXA Financial, Costco, The Big Apple Circus, etc. He was the resident photographer at the NASDAQ Stock Market for more than seven years and his work has appeared in numerous publications around the world. He was an early adopter of digital technology and purchased his first DSLR in 1996. He has been teaching and speaking about digital photography in a variety of venues since 2006 and was named an Outstanding Teacher-of-the-Year by the Suffolk Association for Continuing Community Education in 2010.
