Some tips: Use a minimum amount of components such as colour, shape, line and texture, where the subject is the strongest element.
The subject doesn’t take up the majority of the frame.
Make use of negative space.

3. Outing - Makaranga - Sat 28 July 2018

Details - 
When: Sat 28 July 2018
Time: 1230pm - 3pm
Venue: Makaranga Garden Lodge.
Address: 1A Igwababa Road, Kloof. 

Please join us for a walk around the gardens, to photograph the myriad of plants, flowers and animal life. There is a small waterfall that is pleasant to photograph, as well as a Japanese Garden.

There is usually a fee charged to photographers using the gardens, but we have managed to have the fee waived, provided that we stay for tea or lunch. As such, I will be making a booking for a table in the restaurant for 3pm, where we can have tea and coffee, and cake.

Please note, there is an entrance fee of R60, which is not charged if you make use of the restaurants. 

As part of the waived photography fee, we have promised the owners photos of their gardens. Please email your best photos to hillcrestcameraclub@gmail.com
