CLUB SCHEDULE 2016

 Outings 

Once a month we venture forth into Durban and its surrounds, on a photographic outing. Depending on the outing, it could be an early morning session on the beach, to get the sunrise over the sea. Or a night shoot on top of one of Durban's tallest buildings. There is normally a meal involved - we affectionately call ourselves 'The Eating Club with a Camera Problem', as we usually organise outings around a meal of some kind. Taking photos can be hungry work! Members are strongly encouraged to attend the outings, as they are the perfect way to learn from others, either by watching what they do, or by asking questions. 

Set Subject

Each month a new set subject is chosen. The purpose of taking photos to a set subject is to be challenged and to try something different or new.
