Cindy Hayley – Oh Baby!

Speaker at the monthly club meeting on January, 6th 2020
Tired of the same old photos of babies? Cindy Hayley is going to show you how to take simple but wonderful pictures of newborns (yours, your grandchild, your neighbor’s baby). Get creative!

Cindy Hayley is a professional Infant and Newborn Photographer in The Woodlands, Texas. Her timeless and heartwarming photographs are authentic and unique. Recognizing that a precious newborn becomes a bouncing toddler in the blink of an eye, she captures that sweet, heartwarming moment with much precision and patience. Her style is clean and classic, showcasing the natural beauty of a perfect, tiny newborn. She finds her work most rewarding when she can share her vision and talent with others who have the same passion. In her spare time, Cindy enjoys teaching at her church and spending time with her 4 grown children, who are the namesake for 4 Winks Photography.

Lightroom II Workshop

Don Rueter and Mac Rodgers will conduct a "Lightroom II" Workshop on Saturday, February 1 from 9:30 to 2:30 (lunch included) in TWUMC Room B110. The workshop focuses on Lightroom’s Develop Module, including presets profiles, basic editing, local adjustments and much more. There will be a brief review of the Library Module, as well as the Map and Print Modules, time permitting. The workshop is intended for those who have a basic knowledge of Lightroom. A laptop (Mac or PC) with the current version of Lightroom Classic CC installed is required.
Please be sure to register ($25 fee including lunch) at the January 6 meeting.

Lightroom/PC/Mac Mentor Session

Mac Rodgers and others will lead a mentor session on Sunday, January 26, from 2:00 to 4:00 in TWUMC Room B110, to provide refresher training in preparation for the Lightroom II workshop the following Saturday. This session may be for you if:

  • You are not sure you know where your photographs are stored on your computer or hard drive.
  • Don’t quite get the idea of file management.
  • Need help with Finder (Mac), File Manager (Windows) or File Explorer (Windows).
  • Don’t know where your Lightroom catalog is hiding.
  • Need help installing Lightroom.
  • In Lightroom, don’t know your way around the Library Module.
  • In Lightroom, are not quite sure about the differences among catalogs, folders and collections.

This session is open to anyone at no charge, but intended especially for those who may need a kick-start before the LR II workshop.

Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
Isaiah 43:18-19
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Jeremiah 29:11
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
