Notice for Club Meeting - Tuesday, 16 October 2012

Posted by Hillcrest Camera Club on Sunday, October 14, 2012 Under: Meetings

Hi everyone

We hope everyone that attended the World Wide Photowalk on Saturday had a great time! We can't wait to see your pictures next month.

We are almost at the end of the year and everyone should start thinking what the club can do during 2013. Start making your list for Outings, Set Subjects, Speakers and any Festivals that that should make for a photographic extravaganza.

1. Photo Sharing

Here is what you need to submit:
1. Open
2. Outing (People Mover Busses) - See below for more details
3. Set Subject (Long Exposure)
4. Troubleshooting

Please submit your photos by email to:, or bring prints no smaller than 8"x10".
Email submission closes 8pm on Monday, 15 October 2012.
You can submit photos for either/or Open, Set Subject and Outing categories. Please only submit 3 photos in total. You may submit only 1 extra photo in the Troubleshooting section.
Size - Maximum of 1024 x 768 pixels, and not more than 600KB per photo. Please do not exceed this limit!!!!
Format - Jpeg or Tiff
Labelling - the filename of each photo must follow this format: Your Name & Surname - Category - Title of Photo e.g. Mark Surloff - Set Subject - Girl on Beach.
Please make the subject line of the email "October 2012 photo submissions". This will make it easier to identify the emails and ensure that your photos will be added.
Please note: If your photo is incorrectly labelled, or named, and there is no subject line for the email, or it is sent after the deadline it will not be shown.

If you miss the deadline for emailing, you can submit photos at the meeting on a virus free memory stick. However, please be considerate and come early. Out of consideration to those who have submitted timeously, we will no longer be accepting submissions after 7PM, once the meeting begins.

2. Submission of People Mover Busses photos

You must print one photograph for each subject and mount it on a board to be judged at the meeting. Put the Subject and Title next to your photos. Everyone will get a sticker to put on the board that they like the most and the board with the most stickers win!

The subjects were:
1. Me in the City
2. Architecture
3. Minimalist
4. Life's Pleasures
5. Story Telling

Try to print your photos slightly larger than Jumbo size. Printing them is always more rewarding than just viewing them on a screen, so get cracking!!

If you are unable to make a board, you can submit one photo to be displayed on the projector.

3. World Wide Photo Walk

Exquisite Pano  

If you participated as a camera club member, please submit your photos for viewing at the next club meeting.

If you participated as a registered walker  here are your instructions:

Submitting Your Contest Photos 
Each walker will be able to submit their best photo taken during the Photo Walk in our contest. After your walk go to the
Worldwide Photo Walk website and log in, then go to your Walk Page. There you'll see where you can upload your image for the contest. Photos should be no larger than 1MB in size.

You'll have until October 22 to submit your image for consideration. You are not required to submit anything for the contest if you don't want to. But, if you do, you'll have a shot at winning some pretty awesome prizes! You will be able to see all the submissions after the deadline date. Good luck!"

There is also a Flickr group, set up by HCC, for us to share all our images. Please add all your photos, so that we can see what everyone shot! Click

4. Set Subject: Long Exposure

Long Exposure photographs refers to photos that have been taken over a long period of time. The exposures of these photos can range from around one second, to several hours and even several months. The idea is to emphasise movement. The most common examples are star trails and vehicle lights that show up as long streaks in a photo. Shooting waves over a long period creates a milky effect and people moving around in a busy street, creates ghostly figures.

In bright light you may only get a one second or faster shutter speed, but if you shoot during dusk or dawn you will be able to get much slower shutter speeds. If you have a remote shutter release you can set your camera to Manual and set the shutter speed to Bulb and shoot for more than thirty seconds. This works great when it gets very dark.

A sturdy tripod is essential for long exposures, but shooting hand held can have very interesting results. Have fun!!!

5. Beginner's Outing: ISO

Our next Beginner's Outing will deal with your camera's ISO setting. It will be on Sunday, the 28th of October and more details will follow.


 See you at 7PM, Tuesday, 16th October 2012!
