Meeting Tuesday 06 March 2012

Posted by Hillcrest Camera Club on Monday, March 5, 2012 Under: Meetings

Hi everyone

We would like to thank everybody that helped out at the Club's exhibition on Saturday. It was a great success and we expect to have quite a few new faces at the next couple of meetings. We also want to thank everyone that submitted photos. They were fantastic and we had many compliments from people that came to have a look.

Tuesday's meeting is going to be great and everybody has to attend. We are going to have two speakers that will give you the tools to tackle your own photographic projects and who knows, your project might just make you famous. Read on for more details.

1. Speakers: Harry Lock and Andrew Nunn

Harry Lock will be talking on Photographic Projects. He will discuss some photographer’s projects that have unexpectedly launched careers, resulted in books, and generally made the photographer famous.
He will also take a look at how to plan your own photo project.
Durban photographer, Andrew Nunn will share some of his work, and discuss his approach to photography as a creative tool.

2. Set Subject for February: Ground Level Photography

This Set Subject is a very easy concept and will make your photos a lot more interesting. It is unfortunately also one of the least used techniques used by photographers. The method is simple, get yourself and your camera flat on the ground and shoot the world from an ant's viewpoint.

Use a wide angle and create the effect of buildings, people, animals or plants looming over you or take a close-up shot of something on the ground. Just make sure that you give the viewer the feeling that they are lying on the ground with you.

Have fun!!

3. Outing: Pier at Point Yacht Club

Our outing for this month will be an evening shoot, on and around at Wilson's Wharf and the Pier at Point Yacht Club on Saturday 24th. We will send out a notice later with all of the details, so keep your calendar open.

4. Camera Club Exhibition

Again, thank you to everyone that helped out on Saturday and to everyone that submitted photos. We can't wait to see the quality of work that you will produce for next year's exhibition.
