Postponed: Portrait & Lighting Workshop

We regret to advise that the Portrait Workshop scheduled for this coming Saturday will not be proceeding.

A new date is not yet confirmed. I’d ask everyone to appreciate that there are a lot of parts to this exercise (halls, equipment, instructors, models, etc). Over the coming days we will work to get these lined-up and confirm the new date to you as soon as it is known.

See you at the InFocus Exhibition opening event this Friday 13th March, 6-8pm, Track Gallery, Mount Waverley Community Centre.

Portrait & Lighting Workshop – Saturday 14th March 2020

NOTE: This workshop has been postponed to a later date.

Last month the club announced a major focus during the first half of 2020 around developing our portrait photography skills. Jen Fawkes ran three very successful beginner portraiture workshops which helped build key skills around working with models. As previously announced, this month we are going to build on our model engagement skills while focusing on use of lighting.

On Saturday 14th March 2020, we have been fortunate to engage professional lighting specialist and portrait photographer Michael Marlborough from Kayell, who will lead us in a very special workshop event. Michael has also engaged four professional models to work with us on the day.

Members please refer to the information emailed out that includes the schedule for the day and how to book your place.

Entering prints in competitions workshop

Next week we will be running a workshop/demonstration on how to mount prints for entering in club competitions.

Tuesday 25 February, 7:30pm, upstairs at Wadham House.

This is aimed at intermediate members or those that have never entered a print, but all are welcome.

I will demonstrate my technique for mounting a print, we can discuss various options and members will be able to try out the mat cutter.

If you are an intermediate member that has printed an image for the April comp (due the following week) then we could mount it. There is also a selection of pre-cut mats (lightly used) that members can have for their entries if they are suitable.

September 2019 Workshop – Gear Night

All members are welcome to the Gear night! If you have never attended a gear night now is the time to begin! Our mentors and resident experts sit with a group with similar camera brands and take and answer questions from members about their cameras. The advantage is you will receive ‘pertinent’ rather than ‘generic’ answers to your queries.

Don’t be put off if you are a beginner or not too technical! This is a small group situation and all questions at any level will be discussed.

Hope to see you there!
