Photography Group

9.30am, Tuesday 2nd April

Balwyn Baptist Church, 517 Whitehorse Road Balwyn (Melway 46 F8)


 

The Group had a successful first meeting under its new “tripartite” leadership team – Paul Flanagan, Garry Kerr, and myself.

The first item – the program for 2019 – was agreed by members. The overriding concept of alternating Group meetings – “home” one month and a photo shoot the next – was maintained.  The amended program has been posted on the Club’s web site.  Any subsequent changes due to unforeseen circumstances will be communicated to members as soon as practicable.

We then enjoyed a “Show and Tell” session, viewing Bryan Long’s photos taken during his trips to Nepal, and Garry Kerr’s recent holiday photos taken using his iPhone. After morning tea, Garry continued by demonstrating Dropbox, iCloud for Windows, and the Faststone suite of photo-editing software.

Paul Flanagan is arranging the Group’s photo shoots, and the first of the year will take place on Tuesday 2nd April. A visit for members, (particularly new members), partners and friends to the Australian Gardens at Cranbourne has been arranged.  If there is sufficient interest, Paul can organise a day pass for the Garden Explorer open-air motorised people mover. The cost of a pass will be $8.00 per person concession. Visitors can get on and off as they so desire.

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.
