Help Needed – David Burton

by on Aug.19, 2009, under General

David has asked me if I could put this plea for help onto the BLOG in the hope that someone can help him with a bit of Photoshop editing. If you think you think you can help, please contact David via this BLOG (make a comment) to find out how he wants them arranged.

A good friend of mine from Adelaide has asked me to complete the only full family photo he has.

The problem is it is missing the 4 people included in the other scans and he has set a challenge of having them (face or more) included in either one of the ‘group’ family photos.

This is well beyond my novice photoshop skills but I am really hoping one of our talented members might have a quick play around with it to get a semi-desirable result – it doesn’t have to be perfect.

In return for anyone willing to ‘give it a go’ I would be happy to owe a favour of equivalent time (or free use of any of my photo gear)

thanks, David.

Portrait Night – 18th September 2009

by on Aug.19, 2009, under Workshops

The portrait session held on the Tuesday workshop night was again another huge success. 28 members and 5 guests signed the book but a few of us agreed that there were many more that attended, probably nearer 40.

The night started with Pete showing off the clubs latest equipment, a new aluminium stand and backdrops. This combined with the old stand and new backdrop set up in the front room and the crowds building up, it quickly became obvious that we wouldn’t be able to run this event in the one room and half of the gear was moved to the back room. With both of these and a darkened room set up for longer exposures, we were all keen to get started.

The President addressed the room and announced that the models for the night were all of us. This didn’t get the negative response that was expected and the night was started by Fred Bullock posing in the back room. It soon became apparent that we have some natural models amongst us and it wasn’t long before most of us had sat for the paparazzi like mobs that surrounded each model.

The darkened room had some fantastic shadow patterns showing from the blinds in the windows, courtesy of the bright car park lamp shining in through the window.

All in all a great night was had by all and I for one can’t wait for the next portrait session.
