Our first monthly meeting for the year was a “Getting to know your Camera” workshop with members of the public invited to attend. There were videos on several topics such as Composition and Exposure. Ron Le Huray explained the workings of Aperture and Depth of Field. John Cupper gave a short talk on Photographing in Raw and how to process these large files.
We then formed into groups according to camera types with experienced members assisting with technique and answering questions that arose. Afterwards, we enjoyed a nice supper and a general chat mostly about photography. We were very pleased to welcome and hopefully help several visitors. 2019 is shaping up to be an exciting year for our club with many varied activities proposed.
Interesting location shoots are planned for each month with an extended outing to Tin Can Bay proposed for later on in the year. A portrait workshop with John Lomas is in the pipeline and the PSQ Convention is to be held at Wynnum this year. The Bribie Island Photography Club meets on the fourth Monday of each month at 7 pm in the Boardroom at the back of the Arts Centre on Sunderland Drive. New members are always welcome. The first two meetings are free. If you wish to come along ring Gordon at 3408 2649 or Gail at 3408 9850 or just turn up on the night. www.sites.google.com/site/bribiephotographyclub e: firstname.lastname@example.org
