heat and harsh sun.

3. Set Subject for June: Texture
Wikipedia describes texture as
"the perceived surface quality of a work of art." This means that
when you look at a photo, you will be able to recognise and imagine what the
surface in the photo will feel like. Is it smooth, soft, hard or coarse? Does
it look like the bark of a tree or the folds in a bed sheet?
Your task this month is to photograph texture and make the viewer feel what
you are showing them. Although this subject matter works great with macro
photography, try zooming out and capture a scene where the texture is the
main subject matter, or combine different textures to make it interesting.
Side lighting will usually give you the best results.
Play and have fun!!
4. Outing for June: Summerveld
Our outing will be on Saturday, the 23th of June to Summerveld
where we will be able to capture the horses and the early morning sunrise.
Taking photos of the moving horses at dawn is a challenge and you will gain a
lot of experience during the outing.
More details to follow...
See you at 7PM, Tuesday 19 June 2012!
