Yesterday's Meeting

Hi Members,

A very interesting meeting, starting with members showing their photography improvements since the early days. You can see quite remarkable improvement, which it is all about. But not letting the side down, once again the gremlins got into the system and Kathy missed out showing her shots. So here they are:

Kathy's early photo taken with a Instamatic in 1974
Taken with a disposable underwater camera in the late 80's
And her recent shot taken at Berrinba
The main topic was presented by member Trevor and his subject, BACKGROUNDS', Trevor explained how we can improve our photographs by taking care of the backgrounds.

We've been on the Coast overnight, so I am trying to catch up. So, the lesson notes will be on the blog in a couple of days.

Over thirty members attended yestesterday's meeting, including a couple of guests, Monica and Klaus who may join the club very soon.

The next Meeting is on the 8th September when member Elaine will talk to us about BACKYARD BIRD PHOTOGRAPHY. In the meantime, keep clicking those shutters.

Next Meeting 25 August 2014 - Logan North Library

Hi Members,

I am sending this post out early as there might be some confusion over the challenge for the next slide show. What we would like you to submit are three photos showing your photography history over the years, something like this starting with pictures you probably took with your first cameras, maybe even a Box Brownie....

Captured in 1965 at my first camera club movie shoot

Captured in 1990 the Castle of Thun in Switzerland
Captured recently at the Manly Jetty
The idea is to show our progression in photography over the years. A suggestion for the last picture could be from our Berrinba shoot at the last meeting, but any recent photo will do.

As usual, send your three photos to u3acameraclub@gmail.com

Today's Meeting

Hi Members,

The library was closed today, so we went on a photo shoot at Berrinba Wetlands. This gave us the opportunity to create a new Camera Club Poster for display at the forthcoming 'Logan Loves Seniors' Expo at the Logan Entertainment Centre.

I put together a short video of the event this morning

Cheers until next time.

Next Meeting Monday 11 Agust 2014 - 8.00 AM

Hi Members,

The library will be shut on Monday so we're off on a field trip to Berrinba Wetlands, Wayne Goss Drive, Browns Plains. To take advantage of the morning light, it was decided at the last meeting that we will meet at 8.00 AM. Bring along some morning tea if you wish.

How to get there:

It's an interesting place. Here are a few things you're likely to encounter. I took these shots last weekend.
