Club Outing – 8 October 2014

We had a lively discussion at the last meeting over the images
for the Hutt Battle. The subjects are a bit of a challenge. In
particular the Near Miss category. So keep on shooting.

For the next meeting, instead of meeting at the center, we are
having an outing.

KCC Spring Perambulation and Photoshoot on Wellington’s Beautiful Waterfront at Sunset.

When
Wednesday 8th October (in lieu of Community Centre club night)
Where
Meet at 6.30 pm at Te Papa main entrance
Purpose
Fun, creativity and social, no matter what the weather
Duration
As long as we like, but it might be nice to go to get a beer/food at say 8pm before heading home. There are some good places near there. We can decide venue on the night.
Foul weather option
To be announced at 4pm on the day via email. The Reading shopping precinct or the Embassy theatre have been suggested but any other ideas are welcome.
Contacts
Mary Livingston (021-380-301), Bruce Pool (027-306-0192), Heuchan Hobbs (027-327-5453)

This will be a fine opportunity to try and make some images for the Hutt
Battle. Particularly in the Near Miss category.

Lastly

When we start looking at what makes memorable photographs, we soon come to
realise it is the person behind the camera who makes the difference and not
necessarily the camera. This is brought home to me when looking at these
photos.

Club Meeting – 24 September 2014

We have three meetings before the Karori Hutt Buttle on Wed 12th
November. It is a projected image competition with 4 sections. Each club
chooses 10 images in each secion.

This year the categories, which we chose at the beginning of the year,
are:

  • Near miss
  • The landing
  • Money shot
  • Long exposure

So for the meeting this week, I suggest that we start looking at images
we have.

If you can bring along up to about 6 images in each category sized to
1620px on the longest side that would be good.
