Guidelines and tips not rules.
  1. You must like your own photographs.
  2. Rule of thirds a tip not a rule.
  3. High depth of field essential.
  4. Use HDR for enhanced colour and detail.
  5. Picture requires a focal point, a foreground, middle and background. He is a minimalist.
  6. Tripod is optional.
  7. Use a sky to add to the picture or minimize if flat sky.
  8. Lines and curves add to interest and hold attention.
  9. Movement can be both a detraction and an interest.
  10. Weather and time of day are important to the composition.
  11. Know the 'sweetspot' of your lens and shoot in RAW.

Will indicated a willingness to talk to the club on post camera enhancement and process or any problem area we nominated.

The meeting continued at Murchison Gap for the Golden Hour photographs. Rene assisted members with composition and exposure.

Vote of thanks to Rene and Will.
