President Ann announced that the Capture an Idea subject for next month presentation is  INSECT.

Next month’s talk will be on Light Painting with David Norris. David is well known to some members and will give a fun and practical presentation.

The weekly photography exploration of the wetland’s wildlife is continuing . Meet on a Tuesday at 10.00am in the main carpark on the East side of the river.

Phil Glowacki gave a presentation on” Phil’s Tips.” The starting point for wildlife and landscape photography-
a) Aperture f6 – f9.
b) ISO 640 – 800
c) Exposure Compensation – minus 1 or 2 clicks. Avoids blown out sections of any photo which would be hard to recover in post production.
d) Pre focus – you don’t have the time to focus on the spot.
e) USE Silent Mode.
f) Focus on the eye.
g) Make sure the dioptre setting on the camera’s viewfinder is set to the user’s eye characteristics.
h) Consider the depth of field when setting the f.stop.
Phil’s kit is a lens 70 – 300mm f5.6 and another Macro 100mm f2.8

There was a slide presentation showing the difference shutter speed can make and panning the camera.

A further tip for simple creation of Panoramas – use Microsoft ICE programme – it’s free!
Joy Clayton won the last month’s Capture an Idea – TIP. Runner up Alan Cole

The Potts and Glowacki team and set up  a fish tank with backdrop. Using a tube Ann managed to blow a stream of bubbles in the water for the members to photograph. 

Similarly Phil had set up a bowl filled with coloured water and into which drops were delivered into the centre, creating an effect on contact and a series of concentric waves. The team is to be congratulated and thanked for their efforts in running the practicals and set up.

Last month’s homework was screened- bursting water filled balloons. There were some intriguing entries. Also the effects of changing white balance were shown. Most members chose extremes, so that the pairing were usually  1 blue tone and 1 gold tone.

The fifteen digital entries entered into the VAPS Interclub competition were screened. The fifteen prints for the VAPS competition have been delivered to the Zommers courtesy Alan Cole. The digital images have been uploaded to the competition website.

Homework for next month: -
2 Photos depicting Action, and 2 photos taken on the night, of the bubbles in the fish tank or the drop of water into the bowl. Send these photos to Alan Cole by the Monday night prior to the next meeting –
Remember to downsize your photos to approx. 1Mb.

Feb meeting

Hi all
Welcome to 2018 and our monthly programme that Andrew Potts has worked hard to put together.

Our first meeting for the year will be NEXT Wednesday the 14th. at 7.00pm in the RSL.

We have a fun and learn evening planned. First up is Photography of a balloon bursting, filled with water. So bring your camera and maybe a tripod.

Obviously this is an outdoor activity and will be weather dependant. Those who did it last time had a lot of fun and can mentor the first timers.

When we have calmed down, Alan Cole will present another episode of "Back to Basics."

Some members have recently photographed the cycle races. I suggest that each send their two best shots to Alan Cole so that we can admire their skills.

A little housekeeping -
Bring your print for " Capture an Idea"  - TRIANGLE/S

Interclub competition. Please bring your two highest scoring prints from our November display, excluding any print that might have been exhibited in the 2017 Interclub.. If you didn't display in November, then please bring two prints that you consider your best efforts. A team of judges will have to be appointed and print and projected images decided by March 18th.

2018 Annual Yea Photography Competition. Are we having one? The membership MUST decide bearing in mind that additional help outside the committee will be required.

2018 Photography Project – Portrait of a Yea identity. Members should submit names of identities, so that each selected person is only approached once by one member,

Have fun.
