Today's Meeting

Hi Members,

Today was the last meeting of Term 2.

After the Building and Monuments slide show, we got down to business with our main topic.
What is Panoramic Photography? Researched and presented by member Kathy Roman.

The lesson notes are now available on the link on this blog.

Kathy presented today's lesson on Panorama Photography
Kathy showed us some amazing panorama shots she took and explained which software she used, or is available, to stitch together panorama shots.




Kathy also made members aware that the newer versions of the iPhone have a panorama capability. Which I immediately tried out during the meeting.


The club is now on a break again and we'll meet again for Term 3 on the 14th July, when John Rodgers tells us what judges look for in competition photos.

Have a great break and keep clicking your shutters.

Today's Meeting

Hi Members,

Some of us met at the 555 bus stop at the Hyperdome from where we proceeded to pick up more members on the way to the city where we finally caught up with others who came into town by other means. It was morning tea time so the Shingle Inn provided us with take away coffee on our way along the Heritage Walk down to Old Government House in the QUT grounds.

Brisbane was very generous in providing us with not only ideal light but lots of great subjects to capture along the way.






Old Government House was actually open to the public even though it is a public holiday. For many of us it was the first time we actually entered this historic building.


Then, we visited the QUT Science Building next door, where there is a gigantic interactive digital aquarium to be admired.


Finally, we all strolled back to Brisbane Square for a lunch meal at the only place open, the Shingle Inn. All in all, a great day out for the club.

Next Meeting - Monday 9 June 10.30 AM Treasury Casino - George Street Brisbane

Hi Members,

Following Alicia's talk on Buildings and Monuments at the last meeting, we're going to put into practice everything we've learnt. So, we'll meet on Monday morning at 10.30 AM in front of the Treasury Casino, then take a leisurely stroll following the map below.


We'll stay in a group as we walk along the route. However, if you'd like to do your own thing, that's okay. We'll meet up at 12.00 noon for lunch somewhere. We'll decide where, when we meet.

Diane and I will be on the Translink Bus 555 from Loganholme (Hyperdome) leaving at 9.15 AM which gets us into Elizabeth Street (Stop 82) at 9.55 AM. just around the corner from the Treasury Casino.

Let's take some great shots for the next slideshow.

That's where we'll meet at 10.30 AM
