Grampians Weekend Trip (20-21 April)

<

p>Well, our first Club weekend for the year has now come and gone with 37 Members (including a few family and friends) attending at Halls Gap. The weather was kind, despite the forecast for a little rain, though both the mornings and evenings were quite chilly. Some stayed for 1 night and others for 3 – we were scattered all over town, which meant that we were all within 4 minutes of each other!! (Halls Gap is not very big). We stayed in caravans, YHA, flats, motels and apartments, ate out, drank lots of coffee in between times, bought other miscellaneous stuff and hopefully helped the local economy.

Upcoming

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.
