Notice for Club Outing - Saturday 13th October 2012

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

Hi everyone

1. Outing: Worldwide Photowalk

The photowalk is this month's outing. So far the weather looks promising, so hold thumbs that we will be able to shoot!

The 5th Annual Scott Kelby World Wide Photo Walk is being held worldwide on 13th October 2012.  Club member Yvonne Van Dalen will be leading this year’s walk in Durban. Many of you have registered for the walk, but it is open to those that haven't registered. You are welcome to come along and shoot! Once the photowalk is over (it is two hours) you can continue shooting if you like.

Where is the Walk:

Durban Beachfront. We will START AND FINISH at Circus Circus. The route is circular.
Best parking will be in the MiniTown area directly in front of Circus Circus.

We'll have an opportunity to photograph the sunrise from the beach/piers. The surfers & skaters. Early morning joggers and walkers. The amphitheatre area and gardens and all the way along the promenade towards the paddling pool/fun fare area. We can come back along the road front to get the early morning stalls setting up.

Time & Date:
Saturday 13th October 2012
5.15am to 7.15am (This is for the photowalk. Arrive beforehand to set up)
Breakfast at Circus Circus

Arrive early to set up your tripod. The sun rises at 5.20am!

2. 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!!!

3. 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 5.00AM, Saturday, 13th October 2012.
