Start Shooting: Week 1


Today’s the official first day of school for all of you and you defs saw how crowded the uni was, didn’t you? πŸ˜› While you guys were shuffling between lessons (or the year ones frantically trying to navigate themselves around the campus), our executive committee met up to discuss about a few key events that will be happening at the end of this week. And the following is what we’ve come up for you guys! Sit tight, don’t get too excited πŸ˜›

Firstly, and like always, we always kickstart our events with a tutorial. Week 1 being week 1, the topic for this week’s tutorial is the Basic of Photography. If you’d just gotten your DLSR, or any camera, and know not how to use anything beyond the Auto mode, or that you’ve no idea what does F-stops mean, or simply doesn’t know what does ISO stands for, then you HAVE TO attend this tutorial to get the answers!

And even if you do know the very basics, you can also join us during our tutorial to contribute what you know, or to see if you have any basic techniques that you’d missed out.

This will also be our introductory workshop, where you’ll get to meet the execs who had been working (very) hard to plan the events for this (and the next) semester! These are the people whom you can approach should you have any photography-related questions that you wanna ask, or anything related to Photoclub. P.S: We are nice people. Very nice.

Jot these tutorial details down now:

Date: 4th March 2011 (This coming Friday)

Time: 4 – 6pm

Venue: Gather at the Foyer of Central Lecture Block (CLB)
(Look! Due to the vast increase in our member count, we are moving ourselves to a lecture theatre, and no longer our usual tiny tutorial room :D:D:D:D)


Do not stop reading here! Awesome people do not go home at 6pm on a Friday πŸ˜› We have more than just the tutorial laid out for our dearest members!

After the workshop, we’ll be holding our very first Pizza Night of the year! If you’d been with us for the past year, you’d know what does the Pizza Night comprises. But fret not Year Ones, this is a combined Welcome session to the Photoclub as well as an introduction to our Critique sessions. We’ll brief you guys on what we will be doing in future Pizza Nights, where members can bring their photos to share and get critiqued. I’d recommend you not to be shy in showing your work, because getting critics is the best way to learn and improve your photos!

Wait wait, hang onnnn! What is Pizza Night without pizzas? Hahaha! (Many many boxes of) Pizzas will be ON THE HOUSE! Free from Photoclub πŸ™‚ So come on and join us! OMNOMNOMNOM πŸ™‚

Date: 4th March 2011

Time: 6 -7.30pm

Venue: (If you’re not joining us at the prior tutorial) Meet at the Foyer of CLB. (If you are already there with us) Just follow!


Weekend without Photoclub? That’s like breakfast without bacon – totally not acceptable! πŸ˜›

Our very first outing of 2011! Outings are the best way for our members to get to know each other, to put into practice some of the skills learned during the Basic Photography Workshop. This is your chance to try out the different settings on the camera, and ask any questions that you might have πŸ™‚

Where are we heading toooooo? We’re gonna arm ourselves with cameras, and take a walk in the park. A park that covers more than 220 hectares in the Eastern suburbs of Sydney, and within walking distance from our Kensington campus. Yup you got it right, it’s Centennial Parklands.

Date: 6th March 2011 (This coming Sunday)

Time: 11am – 2pm

Venue: Meet at the Duck Pond, Centennial Parklands

(Please note that this outing will be held on Sunday instead of the usual Saturday due to traffic or transport issues that may arise due to other events happening in the city on Saturday. Marrdiii Graaaass :P)

For all the three events above, they are only open to UNSW Photoclub members only. And it’s required of you to bring your membership cards for identification πŸ™‚

I’m sorry it got a lil too lengthy. But I honestly had a hard time catching my breath writing this, it’s just too exciting to meet all the new members! Cooommmeeeeeee! Fill up the lecture theatres woooot!
