PHOTO GROUP – GUEST SPEAKER Steve Piggot on Accessories (read more)
Aug 13 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Steve Piggot last visited our Club with Malcolm Fackender sometime last year.  At that time Steve was working for Adeal Photographics and since then Adeal have now aligned with the Vitec Group who provide a wide range of Photographic Accessories and equipment.

Steve says …

Cameras take the image, but accessories make it.

While we all know that the camera and lens take the image, we forget that it’s often the accessories that make the image. Whether it’s filters helping you get that spectacular sunrise, tripods making it possible to get those crystal clear long-time exposures or those modifiers that make that harsh speedlight usable. Accessories are the unrecognised heroes of photography, but figuring out what you need rather than what you want, can often be overwhelming.

In this short talk, we will discuss tripods, filters and lighting to help you figure out what’s best for you, your equipment and your style of photography.

PHOTO GROUP – REMOTE CONTROL and TRIGGERING with Brendon Parker (read more)
Sep 10 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Brendon says :

There are occasions when you may want to operate your camera remotely ( wildlife photography is a common example). Cameras can be operated remotely by simple remote control of the shutter or more elaborately by computers or mobile phones. The connections can be wired or wireless. Shutter speed, aperture and focus can all be adjusted and the image seen in live view, the image may be taken directly from the computer or phone. Remote control can also be used for focus stacking and is valuable for macrophotography.

The operation of cameras can also be triggered by sensors which respond to external stimuli for example: sound, motion, lightening, breaking a light beam and so on.

Brendon will discuss and demonstrate remote operation and triggering of Canon and Sony cameras and a dedicated (and cheap) wildlife camera. The demonstration will include third party devices that add additional capability.

 Brendon will show examples of wildlife photos taken with these systems.

MOVIE MAKERS – MEMBER’S VIDEOS and DISCUSSION (read more)
Nov 5 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

In tune with the Club’s historic year where we as a Club have gone back through our history, evaluating how we have grown and changed with the times, Ian Simpson has suggested that each person bring two video’s to the Meeting.

Both video’s should be ones that you are proud of; one video should have been made a number of years ago and the other just recently produced.

The idea is to evaluate and discuss each member’s progress and perhaps take the discussion further as to what the Movie Makers either as a Group, or as individuals,  would like to do next year as well as in future years at the Club.
