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.

Photographing Reptiles

by on Jul.27, 2018, under Workshops

Our July workshop was shooting Reptiles and Australian Animals thanks to Aussie Wildlife Displays. The guys brought along a shingle back lizard, a blue tongue lizard, two pythons including an albino, a green tree frog, a crocodile, a sugar glider and Elvis the Red tail Black Cockatoo. Although cold and blustery it was a great night with the models behaving themselves most of the time. The Baby Crocodile kept his pose with his mouth open for an amazing amount of time.

Photos from the night can be viewed in the gallery for the night, and below are some wonderful shots taken by members Fred Seeber, Tim Keane and Ken Barnett.
