Hillcrest Camera Club - Meeting - Tues 05 March 2013

Posted by Hillcrest Camera Club on Monday, March 4, 2013 Under: Meetings

Hi everyone

1. Speaker: Kierran Allen

Kierran Allen is young and dynamic professional photographer who has achieved a lot in a short space of time. He photographs everything from landscapes, to models, to events, to wildlife and weddings and he creates beautiful work from all of them.

Come along and experience his passion for photography.

2. Set Subject: Motion

Motion is a fun subject for this month and we are sure you will agree when you start playing around with ideas. Motion implies movement in your photograph where you will usually have something static and something and something blurred as it moves through the frame. Take for instance a dancer moving around on the dance floor, a car whizzing past in an off road race or the waves moving amongst rocks on a beach.

The most important thing to remember is to use a slow shutter speed. If you photograph an athlete running past you and you use a fast shutter speed to freeze his movement, it will look like he is standing still. If you use a slow shutter speed, his arms and legs will blur which emphasizes his movement as he is running. You can use this concept with anything that moves.

So go out and have fun!!!

3. Outing: Festival of Chariots

Please note that we have had a change in the Outing. The dates for the Festival of Chariots has been released and will fall in March, so we have postponed the Paradise Valley outing to April. The Festival of Chariots if a great and colourful event where you can capture some great photos. It is well worth the it to photograph.

More details to follow in the next notice.
