Today's Meeting

Hi Members,
Our meeting this morning, the last one at the library for 2015, was very well attended. After the Show and Tell segment on Architectural photography, Kathy took the floor to help us plan for next year.

Diane presents the Show and Tell pictures on Architecture
We are now in the process of finalising a program for next year which will be posted to you during the Christmas break.

The final meeting for the year will be on the 14th December at South Bank, followed by a lunch at the SHIP IN near the Maritime Museum. We'll meet at 11.00 am outside the Maritime Museum where members have the option to enter the museum to take photographs, or wonder around South Bank to capture the sights there, before we all meet at 12.30pm at the Ship In for lunch.

We discussed the program for next year. We decided to have a guest speaker and a photo shoot preceded by a lesson on the photo shoot topic each term. As well as that, we called for volunteers to present their favourite topic on photography or organise a photo shoot or a guest speaker.

Many thanks to all those who did volunteer. We look forward to an interesting and variety of topics and speakers next year.

Next Meeting Monday 23 November 11.00am

Hi Everyone,

On Monday, we'll meet for the last time in the library this year. The only meeting in December will be a field trip, including a lunch at South Bank. But on Monday, we'll talk about the most important topic about good photographs, Diane's favourite topic,


What makes a photograph outstanding, giving the WOW factor, grabbing the viewer. If you only ever want to listen to one talk on photography, this is it. Diane will tell us what makes a good photograph stand out out from all the others.
Showing Sadness and Despair

Showing Humour

Showing Life and interaction

Showing Nature

Diane will show us some memorable photographs and explain how they came about.


But of course, we'll start off with the Show and Tell segment on our last meeting's topic, Architectural Photography. So, if you haven't already done so, please send us your two best shots for everyone to see. After the meeting, these photographs will be uploaded onto our Facebook page so you can check them out and comment on them if you wish.

Yesterday's Meeting

Hi members,

Yesterday's topic, excellently researched and presented by Bill Gofton was on Architectural Photography. No guesses of what the challenge is for next meeting, of course, Architectural Photos. Could be anything from buildings, structures, close ups, etc.

We had planned to upload the Show and Tell photos onto our Facebook page, but that turns out to be a logistical nightmare. I just don't have the time to spend hours on it. We're however still looking into it..

The next meeting is on the 23rd November when Diane will present one of the most important aspect of photography, that is THE HEART OF A PHOTOGRAPH. More soon.
