Motorclassica Outing – October 2018

by on Sep.22, 2018, under Outings

Our October Outing is a visit to the Motorclassica at the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton on Sunday 14 October 2018, from 9am to approximately 1pm.

This Outing will provide opportunities for photographing cars both indoors and outdoors, architecture, crowd shots and other points of interest.

We will start photographing early before the crowds arrive then enjoy a coffee together mid-morning before a lunch together outside (weather permitting). Food stands will be available outside or if you prefer, bring along your own packed lunch.

Parking should be possible at this time. Carpooling is now quite popular, so if interested or you are happy to offer your car, please let Helen know when you register.

Please register with Helen at outings@waverleycameraclub.org by 5pm Friday 12 October 2018, including if you will be lunching with us.

by on Sep.13, 2018, under Competitions

Each year the President of WCC choses a subject for our end of year President’s Trophy competition. This year there will be a little more time to prepare the images due to the earlier AGM, so I have set a challenge:

Choose your favourite painter, photographer, sculpture or artist.

Entries are due on Monday 12 November 2018. Please send your files sized as per a normal competition to comp@waverleycameraclub.org, named with your member number and image title (eg NNN-title.jpg).

Conviviality at Melbourne Zoo

by on Sep.12, 2018, under Outings

A punctual group of members and friends amassed at Melbourne Zoo entry gate on Sunday 9th for our September Monthly Outing.  It was a full day of conviviality, and of course some photography!  Despite a somewhat overcast beginning and end the weather remained fine during the day.

It was great to see a range of newer and older members forming mixed groups.   Most participants began the day with the primate loop followed by the tigers and elephant loop before morning tea.

Outings provide opportunities for newer and long term members to meet and talk.  Across the day the groups remained mixed and provided opportunities for all to exchange of ideas and settings.  Thanks to members who shared their expertise and special thanks go to Dave Sumner, our club wildlife photographer, who spent much of the day sharing his expertise amongst the newer members and visitors.

Following an outdoor lunch we viewed the 50 Greatest Wildlife Photography outdoor exhibition curated by National Geographic then continued photographing until around 4:30pm.  Then a tired group of people straggled home to check their handy work.
