Warrnambool weekend away – April 2019

by on May.18, 2019, under Outings

Historically the WCC annual trip away has been over the March Labour Day weekend. This year having ANZAC day on a Thursday provided an opportunity for many of our members to have a four day break using one day of leave! The other good thing about changing the time of year – we didn’t have to get out of bed so early for the dawn shoot!

Vicki Moritz - Horse buckingOur programme was rather diverse and for me the highlight was the opportunity to take photos of the veterans at the local RSL after the 2 Anzac day marches. On the first morning of the trip we turned up at the RSL with a frame and backdrop and spent the next few hours rounding up clientele from the bar. They grew a little more relaxed as the day went on. Some great people, interesting faces, family portraits, we had the lot. And a special mention to Jan Mallett for holding the reflector!

Stephen Hilton - DedicationOur original schedule underwent a few changes! Due to the weather we didn’t go to far afield for the dawn shoots. Luckily we discovered the race horses training on the beach at the breakwater- just near a very nice café. We did venture to Port Fairy to shoot the lighthouse at dawn and the weather was kind to us- which is not to say a couple of our more enthusiastic members didn’t get their feet wet when some large waves came by! On the way back from Port Fairy we stopped off at the Tower Hill wildlife reserve – friendly emus and a lot of bird life.

Russell Lucas - Proudfoots Dull Dawn

Other places we went to capture some nice images- Proudfoots on the river at dawn, Stingray Bay, Point Ritchie and Thunder point (which lived up to its name with thundering waves and sea spray)! We also visited the Maritime museum, where the high point for me was the blacksmith generating lots of sparks. Stephen Edmonds - Giving the coast its nameSome of our members also visited Childers Cove and the Bay of Isles area, but the weather wasn’t kind enough to make these a dawn or dusk option.

The Shipwreck coast lived up to its name and we heard of an uninsured yacht breaking free from its moorings and ending up against a cliff face to the east of Warrnambool. Sadly I think the yacht is still there.

A range of photos from the trip are now online in a gallery. Do have a look. We are also welcoming suggestions for an inland venue for the trip away next year. Please send through any ideas you may have.

February 2019 Workshop – Printing with Starleaton and Epson

by on Feb.14, 2019, under Workshops

For our February workshop Starleaton has partnered with Epson to teach us everything we need to know about printing (well, some if it anyway!!)

This means a change of venue to Epson – 1155 Malvern Rd, Malvern, 7.00 pm start. Epson will provide catering.

At our last visit to Starleaton many members came home with excellent prints. In addition to learning about printers, papers and colour management there will be another opportunity to print your images with a range of papers available including fine art papers.

This is a great opportunity – do come along. Please let me know if you are coming so we can assist with numbers for catering. Thanks

A Taste of Activities for 2019

by on Dec.20, 2018, under Competitions, General, Workshops

The committee has been busy planning activities for next year and we have been guided in this by the responses from the survey in terms of set subjects and workshops. A number of these are now confirmed and our first few competition nights will be as follows:

Month Judge Set subject
February Rob Sloane My home environment
March Jen Fawkes Perspective (monochrome month)
April Tom Putt Land/Seascapes
May Christopher Ian Portrait (also creative section)

So that you can prepare, other possible set subjects are travel, animals, movement, minimalism, food and low key/hi key. Once judges are organised these will be confirmed. The “creative months” will be May/July/September/November, so there is plenty of time to get creative before they are due in!

Workshops currently being organised are printing, black and white photography, low key/high key lighting (Kayell), travel photography, camera function and maintenance, macro photography, astro-photography and more.

We are also well on the way to securing Mark Galer who will be doing a half day workshop on LightRoom where we are hoping to cover some of the more advanced features. The first weekend in March is the likely date for this event and there will be a small charge which will be subsidised somewhat by the club. An advanced photoshop workshop is also being planned so watch this space.

November 2018 Workshop – Explore the finer points of our cameras

by on Nov.17, 2018, under Workshops

As a result of the weather forecast next Tuesday night – 95% chance of rain and possible thunderstorms – we will not be doing a beach outing for our evening workshop!

Instead we will “stay in” and learn more about our cameras. We will meet at the Mt Waverley Community Centre at 7:30pm where there will be four areas set up for owners of our most common camera brands – Canon, Nikon, Sony and Olympus. Owners of any other brands are welcome to join in – perhaps there is a brand you would like to know more about.

Together we will explore the finer points of our cameras – bring your manuals just in case!

Also a reminder that bookings for the EOY Dinner/Presentation night on Tuesday 4th December close on 23rd November. Book online through TryBooking.
