  • This evenings activity will be Night Photography in the Bendigo Cemetery. Please meet at the main Cemetery Gates in Carpenter Street at 7:30pm. Bring along your camera, tripod and a good torch as we will be “painting with light” and warm clothing.
  • Your camera should allow you to open the shutter for an extended period of time say 10, 20, or 30 seconds or more. Just about every DSLR camera has a manual or Bulb setting, this is what you want to shoot in. Shooting in bulb or manual mode a good place to start to create your first light painting with the following settings:

BULB or MANUAL MODE
Shutter Speed: 30 Seconds
F-Stop: 8 or 11
ISO: 100

You them shine your torch on what you want included in your picture.

  • Afterwards (at about 9:00pm) the club will pay for the cost of coffee. The venue is TBA.
  • BRING YOUR PICTURES ALONG TO THE MEETING ON THE 10TH JULY.  THEY WILL THEN BE SHOWN AFTER THE AV COMPETITION.

Annual General Meeting

As required all positions will be declared vacant, however most committee members are prepared to renominate.  Your club will need a new Secretary (currently filled by Val Densworth) and a new Competition Steward (currently filled by Garry Paterson).

As an Incorporated Club we have adopted the MODEL RULES which state that a new secretary must be appointed within 14 days if the position becomes vacant, which it will on the 17th of July being the AGM.  So basically no Secretary no Club.

Now is the time to start considering putting your hand up for a committee position, including the above two vacancies.
