Today's Camera Club Outing

Hi members. Today's outing was to the Beenleigh Historical village, which offers lots of opportunities for pictures. After the shoot, we gathered at the village cafe for lunch and tea or coffee.


For next meeting, bring along some of your best shots for a slideshow we're putting together for the Christmas Party. This slideshow will play in the background. It doesn't matter where or when you took the pictures, we'll stick them into the slideshow somehow.

Thursday  9th December 10.00 am at the Logan North Library

Our inaugural meeting was a success

We had our inaugural meeting of the Logan U3A Camera Club on Thursday morning at the Logan North Library. We discussed trends and popularity of digital cameras as well as techniques of photo composition and how to capture people.

A survey of people attending showed that most are interested both in still photography and videos, so future meetings will be structured around both methods. It is a great forum for photo enthusiasts of our age, to get together and learn from each other.

The next meeting is a field trip to Underwood Park on Thursday 21st October at 10.00 AM where we will take pictures of the abundant wildlife and magnificent scenery.

We will meet here:
