At our April meeting Doug gave a great presentation on Landscape Photography. It was obvious by the presentation that Doug had given this a lot of time and thought, with it all being presented and projected on to the screen. It is all the finer detail that can be learnt from a lesson like this. Great presentation and much appreciated Doug.
Vin brought along images of a small project he had been working on. It involved two different types of light bulbs and a hammer - fascinating. Thanks Vin. All good for thinking about.
Just a reminder, digital images are to be presented as follows:-
The correct size for projection use is 1024 x 768. If the image is in portrait orientation, the sides are to be filled with black or dark grey to fill the screen. Also each image is to be named as follows:- Competition Name – Member No. – Number sequence. Eg. Celebration – 22 – 1 (2 or 3)
We have had many request for a list of members names – phone numbers and email addresses, so they can be given out to all members. If you are happy to have your details given out in this way, please advise me by return email. If I do not receive an email from you, your name will NOT be included. I will then endeavour to have this list emailed out to you all before our next meeting.
Dot was able to advise us the Camera Club started on the 27th February 1984. Therefore the 30th Anniversary of the Club will be 27/2/2014.
The Toy Story subject was discussed with many ideas coming forward.
- Rusty old Matchbox Toy cars positioned among long grass to look as if they have been much loved, but now discarded. Setting the scene right would make this very realistic.
- Ideas from the film Toy Story. Children heading towards their teens, but still could not part with their ‘comfort’ toys.
- Big boys and their toys – Boats, cars etc.
- Remote controlled toys.
Our workshop at Cherry Park House on the 11th May was most enjoyable. Thanks John for sharing all your knowledge. As with Doug’s presentation, it is all the little bits of knowledge we get from these workshops, that will help us all to eventually become better photographers.
At our June meeting, Jill will give her presentation on HDR photography. This sounds rather daunting if it is new to you, but I’m sure Jill will enlighten us all.
The subject is ‘Celebration’ for the 9th June meeting at Cherry Park House,Landing Road, Kerikeri, starting at 7pm.
