Portrait Photography with Craig Wetjen

On Tuesday March 15 we have our monthly workshop being held at the Mount Waverley Community Centre in the main hall commencing at 7:30PM. This month our guest will be Craig Wetjen presenting Portrait Photography.

You are right to be thinking that Craig’s name seems familiar to you – he was our judge for the club’s end of year competitions last year. Craig has over three decades of experience in the industry and has won countless awards. He has published his own book in the portrait genre, Men and Their Sheds, and has been involved in teaching at a tertiary level for many years. Craig is an enthusiastic and engaging presenter and we are thrilled that Craig is joining us again for this workshop.

You may note that our set subject for the club’s May competition (due for submission on April 5th) is “Portrait”, making this a very timely workshop and I am sure Craig will be providing plenty of valuable tips.

With regards to COVID-19, Monash Council have advised that masks are no longer mandatory in the Hall, although other restrictions are still in place:

  1. Attendees must be fully vaccinated to enter a community facility & provide proof to your group representative;
  2. attendees must check into the facility via the QR Code or register via the manual registration provided; and
  3. use hand sanitiser on entry & through your occupation of the facility.

We hope to see you there from 7:30PM tomorrow (March 15).

Reminder: Workshop & AGM Tonight

We have a couple of things happening tonight over Zoom.

First up, we have the club’s AGM commencing at 7:30PM. I appreciate this may not be everyone’s cup-of-tea, but it is an important event on the club calendar.

The AGM will be immediately followed by a workshop on post-processing software options led by Geoff Shaw, and ably assisted by John Noble on this occasion. This is the first part of a two-part series looking at alternatives to the usual Adobe suite of products (Bridge, Camera Raw, Photoshop, Lightroom etc.). The second part will be presented later in the year.

See you tonight.
Cheers, Russell.

Valley Reserve Walk – Saturday 1st May 2021

This Saturday we have a tour of Valley Reserve with Ian Hunter about the indigenous plants and medicinal properties found in the Reserve.

The Waverley Camera Club will take photographs that will go towards an art exhibition in the Track Gallery, Mount Waverley Community Centre during NAIDOC Week (5-12 July). There may be an opportunity to take photos on the tour but I anticipate members will want to come back and take more images at a later time.
