A few updates from last week's meeting and other small items that have come up in the last week or so. Includes information about the book Neil mentioned "Cambodia with Love", photo enlargements, matting and framing.

VAPS Convention

Neil, Karen and Sue (among others) attended the VAPS Convention to check out the action. We heard reports about the talks and the workshops that went on and, for one, was sad I missed it.

One of the things that came up was Tim Boman's book "Cambodia with Love" and some folks expressed interest in finding out where they could get a copy.

Neil got us some info: The book sells for $20 and are available directly from Tim Boman, he can be emailed at, if you'd rather give him a call, email me for his phone number.

Photo Enlargements

A reminder to members to check our links page for some great resources. Including a link to Photo Enlargements.

Williamstown Camera Club have used Photo Enlargements, Port Macquarie, for a number of print exhibitions. WCC themed prints of "Coffee" for AIPP were printed at Photo Enlargements. Costs are extremely reasonable (the cost of an A3 print barely covers the cost of paper) and the quality is good.

Mat Board and Framing

Hui Hong International Trade Pty Ltd, 153 Hyde St, Yarraville, has very low costs for Mat Board (the last two visits I brought 5 x A1 size mat board for $15, and 3 x A1 for $10).

Mat frames and framing are also very low cost.

The Digital Show

Member, Simon Brown has let us know registrations for The Digital Show are now open and if you register online before the event you'll get a free entry.

Other links of interest (mostly thanks to Karen)

Meeting: Light Painting

It was a much-loved event in 2019 so we're giving it another go. Join us at Altona beach at the end of Millers Road and to the right.

This is a workshop exploring the use of light for painting on our cameras. We'll be looking at using manual mode during this workshop.

Bring a tripod, a wide lens: between 20 and 120mm, a headlamp or torch, a remote trigger, or know your timer settings. It will be quite dark and it will be cold, so ensure you rug up for the evening. 

Also dark clothing is best as you might help out with the lighting and the darker your clothing the less you are likely to appear in the shot. There will be a few stations on the night so we can spread out.
