Next up was a talk and presentation by David Woolcock on his background and his interest in nature photography, well done Mark and David. The final event was the Competition results 'Open Subject' presentation.

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

New Home for WACC - The Boomerang Hotel Complex in Lavington
Our new home will be at the Boomerang Hotel Complex Function Room in Lavington (near the 5 ways).
The members voted at the October meeting to choose this venue for the foreseeable future, and also agreed to change the meeting night from the second Thursday of the month to the second Monday of the month.
This will allow members to have a meal in the Bistro before the meeting, also drinks will be available before and after the meeting.
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.
This year was a another successful Photography Competition at the show with participants from both the Club & Non Club Members entering. Numbers were up on last year which is great to see & to those that won, congratulations and those that didn't next year could be your year.
A very big thank you to the following members: Jan, Brian, David, Jean, Denise, John, Sharon, Pam, Eric, Marg, Coleen, Debbie, Vicky, Wendy, Rob, and Phil for all your help with the setup, manning and dismantling, because without your help the club couldn't do the show.
