Posted by Hillcrest Camera Club on Monday, February 8, 2016 Under: Meetings

Hi everyone

Welcome back everyone! Here's to a fantastic photography filled 2016! And a big welcome to our new members - looking forward to getting to know you! 


1. First Club Meeting of the year - Tues 19th Jan 2016

The first meeting of the year will be held on Tuesday 19th Jan 2016, at 7pm. This is an informal meeting, where we catch up and also get to view each other's 'holiday photos'. The formal meetings begin in February. This meeting gives us a chance to catch up, look at our photos taken during the break and to find out what is planned for the coming year. 

2. Photo Sharing

Members can show a maximum of THREE images, including Creative Category images.

Show us what you have been shooting during the break - share your projects, or efforts and show us what you have been up to. This is not a sharing of 'holiday snaps', but rather an opportunity to show what you have been doing photographically during the break. Top quality is expected, and the usual photo sharing rules and standards apply. 

How to submit your photos:

  • Please submit your photos by email to: hillcrestcameraclub@gmail.com or bring 8x10 prints.
  • Email submission closes 12pm (midday) Tues 19th Jan 2016.
  • You can submit three photos in total.
  • New Size - Minimum of 1920 x1080 pixels. (This is the full HD size.)
  • Format - Jpeg or Tiff
  • File names - the file name of each photo must follow this format:  Your Name & Surname - Category -Title of Photo. In addition, please state your camera settings - Aperture, Shutter Speed, Exposure Compensation, ISO, focal length in the title. For the Creative Category, please state what edits you did, eg. Photoshop Elements 10, Vignetting, added Overlay, saturated colour.
  • e.g.  Bob Smith - Outing - Mushroom - f2.8, 160th of a sec, ISO100, focal length 50mm.
  • You can write all of this in the file title, it allows for a long title!!!
  • Please make the subject line of email submissions "Jan 2016 photo submissions".

Please EMAIL your photos. Although we will accept memory stick downloads at the meeting, we would prefer to only have EMAILED submissions in future.
