Photography Group

10.00am, Wednesday 6th August

In front of the screen in Federation Square (Melway 1B N10).


 

Today, we will be heading to the city for a photo shoot in, and around, Federation Square.

The shoot will go ahead regardless of the weather; if it is raining, we will go to the Ian Potter Centre or the NGV.

Our July meeting began with a most informative presentation by Bryan Long. Bryan brought along several photo books he has created using the free software “Blurb”. His presentation was very timely, because the Group is keen to discuss ways of maintaining and storing our photo libraries so they are available to future generations.

After morning tea, we had a short but rewarding question and answer session on a range of topics.

Barrie Oppermann then showed some more excellent video clips produced by British photographer Mike Browne. To view the videos, which contain some great photographic tips, click on the links below –

Members of the Photography Group meet on the first Tuesday of each month (except Melbourne Cup Day) at the Balwyn Baptist Church to develop their creative skills related to the taking, enhancement, storage and presentation of photographs.

At each meeting, members are invited to bring along photographs and other photographic memorabilia for a “show and tell” session, which is usually followed by a presentation on a photography-related topic, e.g, creating photo books, converting 35mm slides to digital images, portrait photography, etc.

The Group also visits various places around Melbourne for photo “shoots” and recent “shoots” have been at the Royal Botanical Gardens,  Rippon Lea and the National Gallery of Victoria.
