Next Meeting 26 May 2014 - 11.00 AM

Hi Members,

We're still waiting for some of your "People Interacting or Showing Emotion" pictures, with which we'll begin on Monday morning.




Send your three picturess to u3acameraclub@gmail.com before Saturday.

The Main topic on Monday is to prepare us for the field trip on the 9th June into town to capture buildings and monuments.

The topic has been expertly researched by member Alicia Cook and will be presented by Diane.

Try as we may, we probably won't be able to capture the following buildings and monuments, so we might have to do what we'll see in Brisbane, hopefully with improved results.





See you on Monday

Then we welcomed guest speaker, professional photographer Steve Thomas from Evoque Images, who explained to us the philosophy and methods he employs in his wedding photography. Steve was a very interesting speaker and showed us some amazing shots of some of his wedding work.



Then Diane set the challenge for us for the next meeting:
Submit three photos of people showing emotion or telling a story. Try to get more than one person in the photos and show interaction between the people.
