2019 September: Michael Nicholson – Architecture photography

A great night of architecture photography and very interesting concepts and techniques to improve our own images.

It is always great when we can hear directly from someone with such experience in the field. Not only they have a lot to teach, but also the passion they transmit is motivating and contagious.

We really enjoyed the stories shown by Michael’s images of those incredible buildings.

2019 August: Matt Hudson – Astro Photography

We had a great talk about astro photography, and thanks to Matt Hudson we all expanded our knowledge and interest in this type of photography. It will take us a bit to get the math right, but certainly hearing from Matt and seeing his amazing images makes you want to dust off the old slide rule and compass to go out and shoot.

Hi Joslyn, Just a brief note to say thank you for organising the members studio shoot last Saturday.
It was a lot of fun for all those in attendance.

Hi Joslyn, I really enjoyed the studio shoot. It was very well organised and both Jodie and John went to a lot of effort to research the style and the lighting. It was good working in small groups and having a variety of set ups on the go at once.
The models were very good and were relaxed and professional.
John was attentive and his tips on lighting and working with models were helpful.
The room was a nice cool temperature with the strobe lights so made it comfortable to work in. Having the backdrops and props helped set the mood.

2019 July: Competition Photo Travel

Tuesday 23/07
A great evening of critique and learning with Allan Coker.

Feedback: Judging was excellent. The images were really good and the comments were very helpful; not only the good, but It is great to hear also comments on what is not so good about an image to work on it and improve.

2019 July: Alfonso Calero – Raw workflow; from raw to finish

For a long time a friend of the club, Alfonso has always helped us in so many different ways. This time in particular, with his presentation he gave us a view of his process and some great tips for all of us to go and practice.

Everything, from his mood boards on Pinterest, and how he uses inspiration from different disciplines to create his fantastic images, to his life experiences and those places he’s visited that are so important for what he does today.

Here just a small sample of Alfonso’s work:

But if you missed this one, make sure you join us for the next presentations, there is always something new we learn from them.

And if you want to see more of what Alfonso showed us on the night, make sure you visit his site (https://www.alfonso.com.au/) and read his blog, or even better, if you can join him for one of his tours.

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.
