September 23 – Upcoming events

  

(TIP!  Click the BLUE box above to scroll through this and ALL my past messages!) Sept 25, 2017 Professional photographer Dave of Freaktography will present many unusual photos and videos of the often strange or unseen parts of our civilization. His show will take us to many “off-limits” locations seeking out the unimaginable and mysterious wonders discovered in his adventurous Urban Explorations. Don’t miss this one!


Please check our new > 2017-18 PDF Program also available now on our website. Dave Hanson and his team have pulled together another great roster of interesting and diverse speakers and events.  This is a great opportunity to bring a guest.   (Note that a $5 fee applies to non-members on evenings that we have guest speakers)

Oct 2 – This is our first competition of the Sept 2017 to April 2018 club year. Members will have submitted images, which unlike our “category” competitions (nature, people, creative, landscape, architecture etc ) can be a “Photographer’s Choice” of almost any style or subject matter. 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 3 photos that can be submitted by any of our 135 very talented (and friendly!) members. Many have been travelling the country, and indeed the world, to find “that perfect shot”! (Free)

Oct 9 – Thanksgiving – no meeting

Oct 14 – Keep posted on our OUTINGS blog below for our Saturday outing to Mount Nemo

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 not only smaller and lighter, but 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, will no doubt show us many terrific images, and also talk about Social Media.

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, many who have been travelling the country, and indeed the world, to find “that perfect shot”! Some photographers are pleased to sell their prints, so why not consider enhancing your home with a beautiful original print? (Admission is free)
