Burst mode at the motocross

by on Jul.20, 2018, under Outings

Nineteen keen photographers attended the Motocross Outing last Saturday. We meet in the Bunnings, Vermont South car park at 9.15AM and walked to the Motorcross (about 200 metres).

The weather was blue skies all around but we would have preferred a little cloud cover. The Nunawading and District Motocross Club allowed us to access various ‘on track’ locations for close up action. OH&S vests and signed indemnity forms were a requirement.

The Outing gave us the opportunity to practice capturing sharp images of fast moving subjects and at the same time include some motion blur – challenging!

Burst mode appeared to be the choice of the day and so by lunch time, most had captured several hundred images; the action was non stop.

More images from the day can be found in the gallery.

A good day at Churchill Island

by on Jun.13, 2018, under Outings

Our June 2018 outing was to Churchill Island, off Phillip Island, on Sunday 3rd June 2018. This had been planned to enable members to photograph pelicans feeding, farm animals in a working farm environment and surrounds.

We had 17 participants for the Outing and met at the San Remo Fisherman’s Co-op, San Remo; just in time to see the feeding of the pelicans on the beach. Perfect weather; a little cloud but otherwise blue skies!

We then drove to Churchill Island and enjoyed lunch together at Churchill Island Cafe. The cafe had set up a special table for us.

After lunch we saw the milking of a cow, sheep shearing, whip cracking and a working dog demonstration. There were many other farm animals to photograph.

Some stayed until late in the afternoon which allowed them to enjoy a magnificent sunset during the drive home.

Others stayed to enjoy fish and chips at San Remo for dinner.

A good day had by all!
