Things were changed around at this meeting, with Jill getting straight into her presentation on Highlights and Shadows. Thanks Jill, and now we will all be more aware of checking the histogram right from when the image is taken. If the histogram is ignored, it is just another area which could become ‘hit and miss.’
The following is an email sent to me by Claire Giesbers which is self explanatory.
I have been asked to see if there is anyone in the club who would be prepared to judge a photograph competition in Kerikeri in August. This is for the Storylines festival, and will consist of a competition for three age groups – I think they were under 5’s; 5-11 years, and 11-16 years. There would be a 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize for each group, and all entries will be received before the actual day. There is no need for any commentary to be given. The theme is along the lines of ‘Paws and Claws, Fur and Feathers.’ At this stage the Storylines festival is in very early planning stages, and I will be able to provide more (and more accurate) details as planning progresses. If there is anyone prepared to take this on, could they please contact me.
Claire’s email address is email@example.com or phone 401 4980.
Claire Buckley brought up an interesting topic regarding assignments for Camera Club members to carry out after listening to a presentation. This could be incorporated with the subject for the following meeting, or as a separate assignment. This seems to be a good suggestion, which will be discussed at our next Committee meeting.
At our July meeting, Denis will be giving a presentation on Diptychs and Triptychs. This is a meeting not to be missed, as the subject for our November meeting will be the same.
The subject for the July meeting is Black/White or Sepia, which will be on the 14th July at Kaikohe Citizen’s Hall,Tawanui Road, Kaikohe at 7 pm.
