Hi all
We have a fantastic speaker for you this month!

1. Speaker – Louis Kleynhans – Travel Photographer

Find out what it takes to be a travel photographer, and what is involved in shooting in foreign countries.
Louis will talk about being a ‘jack of all trades’ and having to be a master all the genres of photography – landscape, portraits, social documentary and action. Of all the types of professional photography there are, travel photography is the most appealing and exciting for its variety and range.
Louis recently returned from shooting in Botswana and will be sharing his experiences and photos from there.
Not to be missed!

2. Set subject - Black and white photography

This is an interesting set subject – not as simple just converting from colour to B&W. Apply your eye, and composition techniques to seeing the scene in black and white. Contrast plays a huge role, as well as strong composition. B&W adds drama, and also enhances texture in an image.


3.  Technical Workshops

We are introducing technical workshops on editing techniques, covering methods used in Photoshop, Lightroom, Elements and other editing programs. We will be holding the sessions on Saturday mornings, possibly one a month. We will meet at the Sports Club venue. Bring your laptops, power cables etc, as this will be a hands on session. We will be demonstrating techniques, for you to see and adopt, should you see fit.
We envision having  both “Basic” and “advanced” techniques being demonstrated.  So you ca choose which you want to attend. We will also be showing you how to prepare your images for submission for Photo Sharing – resizing, horizon straightening and contrast adjustment.

The date of the session is still to be confirmed. Watch this space!

4. Outing - Monteseel
