Club Meeting - Special Interest Night

Project Night.

The final Project night for the year.

For those of us doing a personal project, your project should be complete or at least nearing completion. If your final product is a photobook you might find some of the info tonight about the production process of photobooks useful. There will also be some talk and vision about sequencing images and more by an accomplished book designer.

We may also discuss how and when our completed projects should be presented to the club as a whole.

This evening is an open forum of ideas, where issues can be discussed and problems solved. You don't have to be doing a project to participate in the discussion.


The address is 30 Banim Street, Aspley. Ignore the location below.

Club Meeting - Judging Evening

Enter all Print and Projected Images for the End of Year Competition, except the 'Print of the Year' (to be brought on the judging night). Judging of Set 'Entertainer/s' images and Open images for November 2018.

Entertainer/s Definition: A person such as a singer, dancer or comedian whose job is to entertain others. But this can be extended to family entertaining themselves with kids and pets etc etc. An entertainer might be a musician, juggler, martial arts expert, circus performer, busker and no doubt there are other types of entertainers. The main objective is to capture the artist at some dynamic or pleasing part of their performance. Some entertainers can be almost expressionless during their performance, and it may be necessary to capture the image in the few seconds after their performance when they relax and possibly smile at the audience. Some, singers especially, contort their faces into many unattractive expressions during the performance, so the suggestion above still applies. Lighting is quite variable depending on the location; street, outdoor stage, indoor stage or setting. If the stage is lit by rotating strobe lighting, it is usually desirable to wait for the light to wash across the artists face. Often, but not always, it is necessary to use higher ISO values and lower than desired shutter speed to get a good exposure. The lower shutter speed and the likelihood of a softer or more blurred photo, can be partly offset by capturing the moment in between a period of activity. eg. at the end of verse of a song, or when an acrobatic group strikes a pose at the peak of their display.
