Making it our own

Following on from Brian’s great tech talk on Lightroom last time, we sent out two images ( for you to “make your own“.  Bring them along on a USB stick tomorrow night and talk us through why you made the images that way and the steps you went through to achieve that.

Interclub Challenge

Let’s have a chat about the topics for the 2016 Wellington Region Interclub Battle (Wednesday 17 August):

  • Reflections
  • Looking up
  • New Zealand Landscape
  • Happiness
  • New Zealand Wildlife
  • Macro
  • Impressions
  • Blue
  • Landing
  • Triptych – Based on the Haiku – Winter leaves, buds tightly rolled, silence.


Need a hand?

Got an idea for a photo – maybe for the Interclub, or PSNZ Canon Online or perhaps a personal project, and you need a hand? Want to flesh out a concept?  Or do you need an assistant (reflectors don’t hold themselves up, do they?!!!) for a shoot?   Feel free to tell us what you’ve got on your mind.

Hutt Battle

This is an annual competition between us and the Hutt Camera Club and is held in November.  The format is projected only. Each club contributes 10 images in each of the 4 categories. These are displayed randomly and the judge gives a score, normally out of 10. The team with the highest score at the end of the evening wins – we won last year’s battle!

Last year’s subjects were:

  • Frame within a frame
  • Moody
  • Red
  • Pride


We get to choose this year’s topics, so let’s bounce around some ideas.

Night Shoot

Let’s put a stake in the ground and come up with a date and time that would suit for a night shoot.  Maybe one evening in the bush (Otari) and another one in the City?
