Invitation to a Visual Presentation

INVITATION TO A VISUAL PRESENTATION

Wangi Camera Club is pleased to invite the members of our club and their guests to an informative and visual evening with Adriano Carrideo on Monday night the 27th May starting at 7pm.

Entry is $5.00

Raffle tickets will be available on the night for $5 each or 3 for $10 to be drawn at this event and the prizes are:-

1st Prize: Canon 750D DSLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm lens, valued at circa $700

2nd Prize : Canon Optical Cleaning kit

About the Presentation

“The aim of my presentation called “Applying both Art and Science” is to provide an insight into how my personal process of image creating and thoughts come together. The talk touches upon universal design tools used in art/design theory. Tools I found personally useful that helped me understand the psychology of art and visual presentation. I feel this insight has helped me engage the audience and promote my personal interest with evocative landscape and street/wildlife photography as well as hopefully revealing something deeper, richer and magical about the world around us. The simple act of creating images is exciting for me as it often feels like a never-ending experiment, practising and testing different photographic and post processing techniques with different outcomes”.

CLUB SHIRTS

In case you are interested in purchasing a club shirt, Mono Unique Embroidery in Toronto is where we have been purchasing them and they have our logo. For those of you who are not aware the preferred colour for the club is the light blue but others have selected different colour as per personal choice. There is no hard and fast rule regarding colour but it is easier to spot other club members in a crowd if we have the same colour shirts. 

They also have available long sleeve versions but in less colour choices. David W has one and uses it for sun protection rather than extra warmth and the material it is made of is very cool to wear. Its ideal for club outings where we are out in the sun.

Lightroom Plugin

Here’s a link to a free Lightroom plugin that shows the focus point in an image. http://www.lightroomfocuspointsplugin.com/
and one for a super fast image viewer.

This opens raw files off the card faster than you can copy them to the computer.
