May’s meeting was a “Home and Away” meeting. During the first session – “Home” – Barrie Oppermann showed some excellent video clips produced by British photographer Mark Browne. The clips covered composition, back-lit subjects, and fill-in flash. To view the videos, which contain some great photographic tips, click on the links below –

After morning tea, several members travelled to the Monash Art Gallery – “Away” – to  view the exhibition of a wonderful and powerfully visual selection of photographs taken by the world-famous Tasmanian wildlife and landscape photographer, the late Peter Dombrovskis. His photographic composition methods and visual techniques are of such a high standard they will studied by present and future photographers, amateur and professional, long into the future.   

The Group’s next meeting is on Tuesday 4th June and will be an “Away” photo shoot at the William Ricketts Sanctuary, 1402 Mount Dandenong Tourist Road, Mount Dandenong.  

We will meet at 9.30am at the Balwyn Baptist Church, 517 Whitehorse Rd., Balwyn (Melway 46 F8) to pool cars.   

All members, partners and friends are welcome to join us for what promises to be a fascinating morning, so please contact Paul Flanagan if you would like to join us.

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.
