Hillcrest Camera Club - Final Meeting & Christmas Party - Tues 4th Dec 2012

Hi all,

It is time for the last Camera Club meeting of 2012. Join us for an evening of Photo Sharing and Festivities, as we kick off the start of the Christmas break.

1. Christmas Party :
The HCC Christmas Party will be held at the Club venue on Tuesday 4 December 2012 at 7pm.
It’s a ‘bring and share’, so please bring a plate of eats, either savoury or sweet.
Dress up for the occasion – it’s a chance to see us in something other than jeans and camera gear!

2. Photo Sharing :
This is our last photo sharing evening for the year and we are have a slight different approach this year:

Your Best Photo of the Year
We want to showcase your best or favourite photo taken during the year of 2012. This is time to show off your best work! Submit by email, we will show the photos on the screen as per usual. It can be a photo seen at the club, or something that we haven’t seen yet, but must have been taken in 2012.

HCC Photogs In Action
Its great to see what we have been up to during the year. If you have photos of your fellow club members taken during the year at outings, please email them to us to put into a slideshow.  It's always fun to see what fellow photogs get up to at shoots!

The Set Subject Challenge of 10 subjects :
Subjects : Luxury, Orange, Strong, Pocket, Jump, Music, Bridge, Morning/Evening, Toy, Dream

PRINT your images to Jumbo size and present them on a board. Be creative, decorate the boards! Shoot to a theme and put your board together accordingly. These boards will be put on display for viewing and voting. This is a competition and prizes will be awarded for the BEST BOARD and BEST PHOTO, as voted by club members. Good luck!

So here is what  you need to submit:

  • 1. Open (to be emailed)

  • 2. November Outing (African Bird of Prey Sanctuary) (to be emailed)

  • 3. Troubleshooting (to be emailed)

  • 4. Fellow Photographer (to be emailed, shown in a slideshow)

  • 5. Set subject Challenge  - 10 subjects - TO BE PRINTED AND PLACED ON A BOARD

  • 5. Best or Favourite Photo of The Year (to be emailed)


Please submit your photos by email to:
hillcrestcameraclub@gmail.com, or bring 8x10 prints.
Email submission closes 8pm on Monday, 03 December, 2012.
You can submit photos for either/or  Outing and Open categories. Please only submit 3 photos in total. You may submit only one extra photo in the Troubleshooting section and one extra photo in the Best/Favourite Photo Category. You can submit several for the Fellow Photographer section, but please keep the file sizes under 200KB.
Size - Maximum of 1024 x 768 pixels, and not more than 600KB per photo. Please do not exceed this limit!!!!
Format - Jpeg or Tiff
Labelling - the file name of each photo must follow this format: Category - Your Name & Surname - Title of Photo e.g. Outing - John Swannell - Sir Roy Strong: An Elizabethan Reverie.
Please make the subject line of the email "December photo submissions". This will make it easier for Andre to identify the emails and ensure that your photos will be added.
Please note: If your photo is incorrectly labelled, or named, and there is no subject line for the email, or it is sent after the deadline it will not be shown.

If you miss the deadline for emailing, you can submit photos at the meeting on a memory stick. However, please be considerate and come early. Out of consideration to those who have submitted timeously, we will no longer be accepting submissions after 7PM, once the meeting begins.

3. Suggestions for 2013 and feedback for 2012

We are asking everyone to put forward suggestions for next year, with regards to the speakers, set subjects and outings. We would also like to hear your feedback with regards to 2012.

  •  Please email us your suggestions or comments to  hillcrestcameraclub@gmail.com . Or add your comments to the Facebook group. We have a running commentary going, and we can all see what has been discussed. Click here for the group.

Thank you to those who have sent in their suggestions already!
Please participate; we'd love to hear your ideas or suggestions! Please also give us feedback on what you enjoyed most this year. What you found helpful or what didn't work!  This will give us the opportunity to make 2013 an even stronger better year on the photographic front!

Looking forward to seeing you all dressed up and ready for some festive fun on Tuesday 4 December at 7pm!
