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.

Portraits and laneways in Melbourne

by on Apr.07, 2019, under Outings

The weather for our outing last Sunday was ideal, overcast with no sun or harsh shadows.

After a train trip into the city by most, we met under the clock at Melbourne Central and viewed the Iconic Women Exhibition, including images of Olivier Newton-John, Audrey Hepburn and Nicole Kidman, to name just a few. It gave us some inspiration in portrait/creative photography as most images had some sort of graphic added to them.

We stuck together, heading towards Fed Square via laneways and alleys, including Tattersalls Lane, Croft Alley, Duckboard/ACDC and Hosier Lane. Luckily we were able to experience the opening ceremony of a new restaurant in Tattersalls Lane; the cameras were clicking!

Ross Eddington -Restaurant Opening

A coffee break on the way was also a must!

We were looking forward to sampling some French cuisine but the Fed in French Festival was cancelled due to poor weather conditions. Saturday had brought rain and hail on and off during the day. Never the less, there seemed to be a lot of images captured during our walk from Melbourne Central.

It was 12 noon so we enjoyed lunch together at the Rooftop Bar of Taxi; overlooking the Yarra and Southbank. The Outing was enjoyed by all.

Photos from this outing can be found in the outing gallery.
