Oct 14 – Saturday: “AUTUMN LEAVES” SPECIALS – Our Saturday outing will be to Mount Nemo as originally posted, and on Oct 15 – Sunday, we will go to the ROCKWOOD Conservation Park. Guests are welcome. These are great opportunities to get some hands-on coaching. Autumn leaves will hopefully have started. Full details appear in the OUTINGS blog below. Please Note: these dates are contrary to a previous post to Outings which has now been corrected. (Location and dates were reversed – Do NOT go to Rockwood on Saturday, it’s now Sunday!!!)
BE SURE to monitor the OUTINGS BLOG on our website front page for any last minute changes from our OUTINGS Chair. Changes can arise due to weather, venue changes or cancellations. So always check the outings blog before heading out!!!
Also have a look at our > 2017-18 PDF Program which is available on our website. This outlines our entire schedule for the year. (Note: The Rockwood outing is a late addition and does not appear on the printed program) We have great roster of interesting and diverse speakers and events through to April 2018. And be sure to view our website GALLERIES TAB to see a wealth of images from our competitions and key members.
NOTE: Oct 9 – Thanksgiving long weekend – there will be no meeting.
Oct 16 – Mon: Our Guest speaker will be Professional Photographer and Social Media expert Pamela Julian who will talk about the trend away from traditional Single Lens Reflex (SLR) cameras to the new generation of mirrorless cameras. These new style of compact cameras still retain the benefits of removable lens, but with the elimination of the moving mirror and prism, they are smaller and lighter. And they typically provide more advanced electronic features, including faster focusing and high resolution 4K video capabilities. Don’t miss hearing this Urban and Architecture Photographer who knows how to capture a city like no one else, and will no doubt show us many terrific images. Pamela will also talk about Social Media. ($5 fee for non-members)
Oct 23 – Mon: Print Night #1 This is our first of two PRINT competitions of our Sept 2017 to April 2018 club year. Members may bring and submit two prints, which can be of almost any style or subject matter (nature, people, creative, landscape, architecture etc ) in colour or monochrome. We have live judging with comments on many images from the judges, so it all makes for an excellent learning experience and the opportunity to see prints that can be submitted by any of our 135 very talented (and friendly!) members. Some photographers are pleased to sell their prints, so why not consider enhancing your home with a beautiful original print? (Free Admission)
