Rodeo action

by on Jan.17, 2012, under Outings

Just because I was somewhat successful with a couple of my rodeo images last year, I have been looking at the rodeo calendar for some days now in an effort to repeat the performance. There is plenty of rodeo activity happening right here in Victoria – this month, next month and in fact right up until March 2012. So here’s the thing – do we as a club want to go to a rodeo specifically to make images?

If we are, then I am prepared to try to get us some nice seats in a prime position! If we, collectively, are not interested then Rosie and I will go together, as we do anyway. Here are some dates (though we cant go in January!)

28th – Cranbourne

11th – Kyabram
25th – Whittlesea

9th – Kyabram
10th – Merrijiig(?)
17th – Cockatoo

… now this is all I know so if you want to go as a group let me know and I will do some research. Find a contact, butter it up, and see what happens.

The Waverley Camera Club Beginners Courses are back for 2012

by on Jan.06, 2012, under General

If you are a novice and want to learn how to get more out of your camera and you have Monday nights free read on.

The course will run for 9 consecutive Monday nights (even on Public Holidays) and will be held at Wadham House in Mt. Waverley from 7:30 – 9:30pm. Topics covered will include: Camera Controls, Basic Camera Operation, Composition, Lighting, The mode dial, Exposure, Metering and Exposure Compensation. Classes will be limited to 6 students to allow for maximum interaction between pupils and teachers.

You will need to bring your camera with you every week which must be an SLR rather than a compact point and shoot camera. (If you’re unsure whether your camera is an SLR or not email me the make and model and I’ll let you know)

There will be 4 terms this year and they will run as follows:
Term 1: Monday 30th January – 26th March
Term 2: Monday 23rd April – 18th June
Term 3: Monday 16th July – 10th September
Term 4: Monday 8th October – 3rd December

As well as the 9 Monday night lessons each term will also include 2 night shoots on a different night.

The cost is $225 and includes membership to Waverley Camera Club for 2012. As a member of Waverley Camera Club you are also entitled to go to all club events including workshops and outings.

To register, or if you have any questions, please email me and state which term you want to do. Places for 2011 filled fast so to avoid disappointment act early as places are allocated on a first in best dressed system.

Competitions in 2012

by on Jan.03, 2012, under Competitions

In the coming year we will be having ten monthly competitions.

In a change from previous years, all of the monthly competitions will be open, ie there will be no set subjects. However please note that the March and September competitions will be open monochrome. You can use any subject you wish, but it must be treated as monochrome.

In order to avoid having a judging night on Cup Day in November, the judging night for the November competition (and the due date for the end of year competition) will be on the last Tuesday in October.

Finally, please remember that entries are due for our February competition next Tuesday 10 January, 2012. This will be a BBQ at a location still to be determined.

Update: The BBQ will be at Jells Park, arrive as early as 5pm, second hut near the main carpark when entering from Waverley Road.
