Member Les Atkins gave an excellent talk on Post Production Tools, Tips & Techniques using Lightroom, Photoshop and Nik software.
Many thanks Les for your most informative talk on Lightroom, Photoshop and Nix software Tuesday evening. Your down to earth explanations of the various tools, and shortcuts should prove very valuable, and I found it quite amazing what can be achieved with seemingly little effort.
Again thank you for sharing your knowledge with your fellow club members.
Two of our own Eric Lippey and Michael Hing shared with us their experience in Ethiopia, and it was a great visual experience. Their images were astonishing and the story of their experience was fascinating and edifying.
It is great when photography is beautiful and captivating, but even better when it takes you to places, when it teaches you something new and changes the idea you had about the subject, and that is exactly what Michael and Eric managed that night.
Besides being great at public speech, they are also amazing photographers; if you want to see more of their images head to our gallery, or even better come join us on our competition nights.

We joined again for another night of incredible photography and invaluable learnings from Australia’s top Sports photographer.
A presentation that gave us the pleasure to see his incredible images, but specially that gave us an insight view of his story as a photographer, how the love for sports led him to follow his dream and risk big.
To see more of his work, visit his website www.sportsphotography.com.au and follow his instagram feed @dellyphotoninja
What an amazing presentation night. We all loved it and the comments couldn’t be better. It was hard to believe that this was his first time presenting to other photographers, because it was both entertaining and inspiring.
Jan took us trough his photographic journey: his first digital camera and those first long exposures, how he has grown as a photographer, his adventures to get those amazing astro photographs, the excitement of capturing the perfect storm, the gear he likes and the thinking behind his incredible images.
The time lapse and videos made an already great presentation even better.
This was a great way to start the year, I hope he presents again in the future.
If you want to see more of his work, check his instagram feed, he posts not only great images, but also the very entertaining stories behind them: @janbreckwoldt_photography

A great presentation, members found this different and interesting.
Tuesday 13/03 Meredith Schofield – Analogue girl in a digital world.
“I describe myself as an ‘Analogue girl in a digital world’.
“I use my extensive experience in film photography to get the look I want and enhance my work as well as embracing the digital world. This gives my work a distinctive style which is instantly identifiable and full of impact.” Meredith is a photographer and community arts worker based in Sydney & the Illawarra region of NSW, Australia. Specialising in reportàge, lifestyle, travel and portrait photography her passion is in telling stories and capturing images that evoke a response – visually, emotionally, intellectually or otherwise.
...Meredith Schofield describes herself as an ‘analogue girl in a digital world’. With a Diploma of Photography from Sydney Institute of Technology she has a grounding in film based photography where every frame counts and calculating exposure variations mentally is part of the everyday photographic task.
Meredith’s presentation for Norths Photographic Society demonstrated her enthusiasm as well as her bubbly personality. She covered a lot of ground quickly and illustrated her various specialties such as lifestyle, travel, portrait and reportàge photography. Film is her preferred medium when she has a project that allows her to slow down and think of the consequences of each and every shutter click although some commercial contracts need the masses of frames that can only be produced economically by digital photography.
Meredith has a background in social work which has led her to tutoring people with intellectual and physical disabilities and she likes to use the camera and photography as way to connect. She manages to combine both areas with grants and commercial projects for community groups.
All Meredith’s work is brought into the digital realm by either direct import into Lightroom or by import via a film scanner and she gave us a quick synopsis of her general workflow and backup systems. Bringing the world of film into the digital realm gives Meredith’s work a distinctive ‘gritty’ feel, especially her monochrome images.
After a break for supper where Meredith encouraged people to chat with her about photography, she resumed her presentation with a quick series of guides for anyone wanting to venture into the world of commercial photography.
Meredith Schofield kept us entertained throughout her presentation and we were all buoyed by her enthusiasm and extrovert personality….. Max Perkins
