Apologies – Delwyn
Welcome to our four new members. We hope you enjoyed the evening and will be back again next month.
After going through the incoming mail, Denis gave a run-down on the Rules and Regulations of Digital Images when entering them into competitions. This was most interesting as next months meeting will be in digital form only.
Next John Perkins covered the basic workings of a camera. John made this a most interesting discussion, which new and old photographers participated in, which is what we are looking for. All learning from each other.
Time caught up with us a little, and I missed giving out the Questionnaire we would like you to complete, giving us more ideas on what you would like to learn from Camera Club. Also Doug missed announcing our ‘Logo’ Competition. Hopefully at our March meeting we will be more organized and these two things will be covered.
Irene has made new brochures for advertising our Club. These have now been given to a few members in each area, to see if they can be put on Notice Boards etc. around the area.
At our March meeting we are going to discuss Camera Metering and Focusing. Another part of photography which is most essential to have correct. We are hoping everyone will partake in this discussion, therefore all learning from each other.
Our subject for next month is ‘Book Title’. A photo relating to a book title. This should be most interesting, giving everyone a wide range to choose from. Don’t forget it is DIGITAL ONLY.
Our next meeting will be on March 10th, at Kaikohe Citizen’s Hall, Tawanui Road, Kaikohe at 7pm.
