Term 2 is about to begin, so PhotoClub will be back Week 1 Friday!

We’re launching the term with a popular topic – Night and Astrophotography. Expand or even try it out for the first time! Keep your cameras active post-sunset. We will cover light painting (which we’ll then try out at our Week 1 outing), capture amazing nightscapes and fireworks as well as astro scenes. Our tips and tricks will allow you to improve your skills, on any camera or phone.

We will also be holding an EGM (Extraordinary General Meeting) during the Week 1 tutorial. The agenda for the meeting is: 1. Apologies. 2. Election of the following senior executive positions: Vice-President, Secretary, Arc Delegate and Events Manager. 3. Business without notice. We will go through the nominations received and then hold a vote to elect the execs! If you wish to nominate yourself or somebody else, email us at president@unswphoto.com with an expression of interest. Don’t worry, the EGM will be brief and we will still be holding our Night and Astrophotography tutorial straight after.

And hang around with us afterwards for FREE pizza & drinks!! Let us know if you have any dietary requests.

*This event is open to 2019 PhotoClub members only (please bring your membership cards).

Along the way to Observatory Hill, we will explore the urban area, but do try to keep up the pace so we don’t miss the Sunset! Remember to bring your tripod if you have one, as observatory hill is the ideal location to do some light painting/long exposure photography. If you have any, feel free to bring along any lighting probs like torches, laser pointers, glowsticks and sparklers.

Our workshops are designed for base skills – to teach all the basics about photography.

In week 2, we will begin running Workshop A – Exposure. This workshop is a simple introduction on how a camera works. It familiarises you with the exposure triangle, which includes aperture, ISO and shutter speed, and how to use the camera to manipulate them.

In week 3, Workshop B – Focus, will begin running. It will give you a complete breakdown of how a camera focuses, its different focus modes and how to use them to your advantage. We will also be covering some other basics including depth of field, dynamic range and white balance.

The workshop times will be posted in the UNSW PhotoClub 2019 Facebook group – join it here if you haven’t already!
