Group gets photo ad­vice

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

Eighteen keen ‘happy snap­pers’ at­tended the re­cent pho­tog­ra­phy work­shops held in Co­bram, hosted by the Fin­ley & District Cam­era Club.

With fund­ing to host the event from the Moira Shire’s arts and cul­ture grants project, a num­ber of spe­cial guest pre­sen­ters were co­or­di­nated.

The pho­tog­ra­phy group’s pres­i­dent took par­tic­i­pants through a hands-on ses­sion on how to cre­ate photo books to present their works or mem­o­ries.

Club mem­ber Barry Ben­nett said an­other use­ful ses­sion was on the role of pho­tog­ra­phy in me­dia from Co­bram Courier edi­tor Jenna Bishop.

‘‘Jenna pro­vided an in depth talk on what is re­quired for me­dia re­leases, and to cre­ate a photo and story for a lo­cal news­pa­per.

‘‘She also spoke about spe­cial re­quire- ments, like seek­ing per­mis­sion of peo­ple and chil­dren be­fore pho­tos are printed.’’

Mr Ben­nett said in the af­ter­noon ses­sions, peo­ple could choose to at­tend work­shops on the best use of your dig­i­tal SLR cam­era set­tings or on us­ing the video set­tings of your cam­era.

‘‘Rhonda Doyle of Co­bram Pho­to­graph­ics thrilled the class with com­po­si­tion for pho­tog­ra­phy and what cam­era set­tings you should use for the spe­cial re­sult.

‘‘Val Lee took us through how to take dig­i­tal SLR video from a ba­sic cam­era. She par­tic­u­larly stip­u­lated you should have the bat­tery fully charged, and never go over half an hour. She also said you should let your cam­era cool down af­ter tak­ing video to pre­vent any dam­age.’’
