Hi AllThis is going to be a bumper month for the club with two meetings, the outing, the Christmas Party and the exhibition. We still need your assistance with bookings for the Christmas Party and mounted prints for the exhibition, so please read on.1. SpeakerThe speaker for November is the accomplished photographer Shane Doyle. He has worked around the world in Africa, the West coast of the U.S.A., the Canadian Rockies, Dubai as well as Slovakia and Malaysia. He has also established himself in a variety of genres such as wildlife, commercial, sports and weddings."Shane's travels have followed his heart and his photography merely serves as an outlet for his expression. To visualise is merely an attitude toward photography, hence Shane's work is a total freedom of expression and is no way restricted by others ideas of the art." Please view the rest of his profile at http://www.shanedoyle.com/2. Outing - 13 November 2010We are planning a late afternoon/evening shoot at the Umhlanga Pier and Lighthouse, if the weather permits. The aim is to photograph the pier's lights reflecting on the water and a beautiful sky as the sun sets. Once the light fades we will be a able to use longer exposures to get the milky effect on the water. The lighthouse will be a similar shot and with a smaller aperture of about F16 you will be able get the star effect on the lights. We are going to finalise the details and will let everyone know in the next notice.
3. Second Monthly Meeting - Tuesday, 16 November 2010* Deadline for EMAIL submissions - THIS Sunday 14 NOVEMBER 2010*The second meeting is our "Show and Tell" evening, where everyone can submit their photos to share, and to be commented on.There are three categories to submit photos for:
"How Green Was My Valley?" - Life is hard in a Welsh mining town and no less so for the Morgan family. Seen through the eyes of the family's youngest, Huw, we learn of the family's trials and tribulations. Family patriarch Gwyllim and his older sons work in the mines, dangerous and unhealthy as it is. Gwyllim has greater hopes for younger son how to honor his hard working parents. Huw who has his own ideas on how to honor his father. Daughter Angharad is the most beautiful girl in the valley and is very much in love with Mr. Gruffydd who isn't sure he can provide her the life she deserves. Times are hard and good men find themselves out of work and exploited by unseen mine owners.Photo inspiration - Think carefully about the subject matter. It's about family, hard work and even a harder life. It can be of people working in a green valley or an impoverished family that finds happiness in the small things in life which we take for granted. Think of the trials and tribulations within your own family and try to depict them in a single photo. A photograph can tell a story. Show us yours.5.
