Photo work­shop

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

The Fin­ley and District Cam­era Club Inc will host a spe­cial work­shop this Sun­day, with thanks to a Moira Shire Arts and Cul­ture Grant.

One of two grants awarded to the group in re­cent weeks, the $1180 from the shire fund­ing pro­gram will as­sist keen photographers to learn more about us­ing their cam­era to the best of their abil­ity.

The photography work­shop will be held at the Bot­tom Pub in Co­bram from mid­day to 5pm, with the $20 reg­is­tra­tion fee cov­er­ing a pro­vided lunch.

Club mem­ber Barry Ben­nett said three in­struc­tors would each run two hour ses­sions.

‘‘Sub­jects be­ing cov­ered by guest tu­tors in­clude com­po­si­tion photography and ba­sic cam­era set­tings by Rhonda Doyle,’’ he said.

‘‘Maureen Arthur will cover photo book cre­ations, learn­ing to cre­ate beau­ti­ful photo books to dis­play and share your dig­i­tal images and cre­at­ing some­thing to be proud of to share with fam­ily and friends.

‘‘Va­lerie Lee will be in­struct­ing how to shoot DSLR video.

‘‘Dur­ing lunch there will be a ‘What pho­tos ed­i­tors like for news­pa­per pre­sen­ta­tion’.

The club’s sec­ond grant was through the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment Vol­un­teers Grant.

The group re­ceived $5000 for a de­fib­ril­la­tor, first aid cour­ses, first aid kit, food han­dlers cour­ses, mar­quee, chairs and a ta­ble.

‘‘This is the fourth Vol­un­teers Grant the club has re­ceived, with oth­ers pro­vid­ing com­puter, pro­jec­tor equip­ment, carry cases and cam­era equip­ment,’’ Mr Ben­nett said.

The Fin­ley and District Cam­era Club Inc meets at the Ba­rooga Pub­lic School Li­brary on the sec­ond Thurs­day of each month, at 7.30pm.

Through­out the year guest speak­ers are in­vited.

In April mem­bers heard from Margaret and Al­fred Zom­mers from Knox Pho­to­graphic Club and Aus­tralian Photography Judges As­so­ci­a­tion.

They spoke on judg­ing com­pe­ti­tion prints and dig­i­tal images.
