On Sunday the 18th of March fourteen members travelled along the Western Highway for a 10 oâ€™clock rendezvous at Ballaratâ€™s Sovereign Hill. As we neared Gordon the temperature was dropping, but once we were there it turned out to be a sensational autumn day.
You may not have already heard about Creative Live. An amazing resource for aspiring photographers who are looking to better their skills but don't have a small fortune to spend on workshops.
You've seen courses that cost thousands of dollars and last a day or two, you attend and retain maybe 10-20% of everything you've learnt because the days were so jam-packed with information.
On New Year's Eve I decided to go down to The Strand on the Williamstown foreshore with some friends, overlooking the Yarra River, and try to capture some photos of the fireworks exhibited at various locations within and around the city.
I had even visited The Strand in the afternoon to pick out a good vantage point to set up my tripod that evening. It was a lovely night, and I was well organised, but unfortunately I was beaten to MY spot by a couple of thousand others who decided this was also a good location to welcome in the NY!
We've had some questions about exporting photos for use on the website. In this video you'll see how to export photos using Apple's iPhoto 09, with the steps listed below the video.
On Saturday 25th Feb, the Williamstown Camera Club had its first photo shoot outing for the year. It was not for the faint hearted, with temperatures approaching 40Â°C, an hours drive north, and a late start and finish. I was pleasantly encouraged by an attendance of 11 hardy souls. As always, the â€˜bikey boysâ€™ were there in strength.
Michelle Thompson, one of our own, has been selected as a finalist for the third annual Lens Mist Photographic Awards.
