Meeting this Week
- Wednesday 27th May, 19:30
- Karori Arts and Crafts Centre, 7 Beauchamp St, Karori
Last meeting we had a few eager photographers ready to take on the
This week we will take a look at the results of those and discuss. Again
whether an image works or not, and try and understand what makes the
images work or not.
Then thought it might be appropriate to have a brain storming session on
topics for the Wellington Interclub. If anyone has any images that could
be used to inspire, bring them along. They dont’t have to be your images
as this is more of an explorartory exercise.

A look at the adventures and imagery of renowned travel photographer
Chris McLennan. Including photos and ‘behind the scenes’ stories from
some of his more intrepid photographic projects; how he captures stunning
travel photos; a brief summary of his career and what it takes to become
a successful travel photographer in today’s digital era.
There are also a few spaces available for two workshops that Chris
is running on the 29th and 30th May at Wilton’s Bush, Otari.
We all know that photographs can make a difference. And of course we know
all about the decisive moment. The following is really good read on a
photo that Neil Leifer took. The section on the photograph is what really
appealed to me. Okay some of the background on Sony Liston did as well 🙂
The comment about format and colour vs black/white was intriguing.
