Astrophotography Workshop - 17th May

Below, left The Bridge and right the Milky Way over Bellbridge. Astrophotography

On Sunday night 17th of May, Mark Slater conducted for the club an astrophotography workshop at Bellbridge on the Hume Weir.
This workshop had to be conducted at short notice because it was dependent on weather conditions.
It looked like we were in for a cold night, however the weather was quite pleasant and so was the night, which was well attended by members.
A big thank you to Mark for his time and effort on the night.

WACC Road trip - Sunday 15th March

A roll-up of 28 for the road trip on Sunday met up at Bunnings in Wodonga and headed down the track to Yackandandah, Myrtleford and Beechworth capturing the required images along the way.
The weather couldn't have been better, and everyone enjoyed the day out which took around a lazy 5 hours for some and longer for others.
The winners were: Denise Organ, Vicki Cain, Brian Paatsch, Sharon Alston and David Willis.
Some images are available for viewing on the Outings page.

Lake Hume - Landscapes & Shapes - 17th November 2014

Weir Outing

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

Wildflower

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.
