PHOTOCLUB EVENT OPTIONS

PhotoTalks

Every Friday of term @ 4PM in-person or online. We hold a range of tutorials (we like to call them PhotoTalks) based on themes such as those in the calendar above. Please bring your camera as there will generally be an opportunity to experiment! These events aim to make you aware of new opportunities, teach you new techniques and of course…have fun! What’s even better is that we offer free food and drinks in selected PhotoTalks!

Check out the recording to have a deep understand of our PhotoTalk!

Outings

Approximately every second weekend during term PhotoClub conducts PhotoWalks around Sydney to hone PhotoTalk and workshop skills. They are great mediums for new and diverse photographic subjects. There will generally be an objective during Outings and the best photos will be featured on our Insta – yes we will give you a shout out for free!

These are focused on base-level photography skills. There are 4 workshops:

  • A – Exposure: How to balance aperture, shutter speed and ISO.
  • B – Focus: How to get perfect focus!
  • C – Composition: How to turn nice photos into great ones!
  • D – Lightroom: How to post process photos in Lightroom.

Road Trips / Day Trips

We hold short Road Trips (generally 2 nights and 3 days) or Day Trips (1 day) during the Term 1, Term 2 and end-of-year holidays, to adventure into new landscapes with a group of like-minded photography and travel enthusiasts. Past trips have been Jervis Bay, Melbourne, Port Stephens, Canberra, Blue Mountains, Kiama and more!
