Processing Circles

Processing circles


There are 4 active processing circles in the Landscape Group.  The newest group is for members using Affinity Photo.

Each month one member of the group is asked to share an unprocessed RAW image with their circle. The members of the group process the image as if it were their own, explain the reasons for their editing approach and share their edited images and notes with the other members of the circle.

Our processing circles are managed by Irene Stupples, Jim Stupples, Leigh Foster and Howard Fisher.  

The processing circles hold monthly Zoom meetings to enable group discussion of the edits and for the exchange of ideas. The introduction of the Zoom meetings at the start of lockdown brought a welcome added dimension to the circles.

The author of the image processed that month shows their RAW image, the processed versions from the other members and also their edited version. It has been fascinating seeing how different people approach the editing of the same image and learning from others. The meeting finishes with the author of the image for the following month showing their image and giving some background information eg where it was taken and why they took it.

Further information from one of Processing Circle can be read in Leigh’s article here
