The April Meeting - 'Open Subject
A great turn up of members for a great April meeting. Our Judge Ron Speed which is the VAPS and APS President attended and was greatly appreciated for his informative critique of the competition images. After the competition he gave a five point talk on judging images which was well received. This was followed up by an AV presentation of some of his work which was nothing short of stunning which wowed his audience.
Our Audio/Visual section saw presentations from Jill Hancock, and Wendy Stanford.
Last night was our last farewell to two of our valued and fond members John and Denise Organ, who are moving up north and thankfully, will remain long distant members of the club and we will be fortune enough to continue to received and view their EDI images in our competitions. While at the club John has introduced the 'John Organ Style' of photography, of which some have been brilliant. Denise, well we have seen her photography grow to a very high standard. When she came to Albury she was a casual photographer, and came along to our meetings to support John and turned into a very keen and confident photographer in her own right.
Due to Ron's visit our Photographic Challenge 'Water' has be held over until the May meeting, so it will give members a chance to enter images if they haven't already.
Members are reminded that next month due images are for Set Subject 'Food - picked, packed or processed' which is the start of the 2015/2016 competition year.

Lake Hume - Landscapes & Shapes - 17th November 2014
Recently a group from Camera Club attended a workshop and BBQ dinner out at Lake Hume. The weather was fine and there was a promise of an excellent sunset. First order of business was to start everyone using AV where you control the aperture and also lifting your ISO. What this achieves is that you control two sides of the triangle to get good shots - speed, aperture & ISO. For most Landscapes we want a deep depth of field so Aperture was set between F8 through to F16 and ISO was fixed at ISO 400 for a start. As the light faded the speeds started to drop so this is why you need to use a (very sturdy) tripod and a remote control.
For those with very modern camera a bodies you can lift the ISO to up around the 1600 mark without generating a great deal of digital noise. We also practiced using Variable ND filters held over the lens to extend the time taken for the shot. Apart from one mishap where an 82mm ND filter was smashed (lens was OK) and a bit of bark was shredded off the photographer but she was OK after being patched up.
I hope everyone managed to get some good shots as I chimped a few as we looked at some of the results that night. Hopefully some will even be entered in this month's Open competition.
Photos coming to the Outings Page soon!
Cheers, David G Woolcock
Chiltern Wildflower Outing
It was superb weather and what better way to spend a day than in the bush amongst the wildflowers taking photos and enjoying the day with fellow members.
14 of us showed up and travelled into the bush, and then went in different directions at the Honeyeater car park to capture that shot!
We assembled back at the car park around lunch time to have a cuppa and discussion together before departing for home.
