Covid-19 – Delta Alert Level 2

As we usually do in level 2, we will meet up as usual but with the relevant restrictions in place and no supper.  We will have the QR code for you to use at the door, along with sanitiser.  You can wear a mask if you wish and we will have the chairs spaced out for physical distancing.

Critique Series 4: Documentary

When: Tuesday 26 October 2021
Time: 7:30pm
Location: Hutt Valley Tramping Club
Topic: Critique Series 4: Documentary
Entries due for the end of year Portfolio competitions

Come along to hear the comments from the judge in our fourth round of critiques this year and learn more about creating the perfect image and support club members.

*Survey results and Future of the Club*

After we have finished the critique we will have a 5 minute SGM to approve the financial reviewer motion and then we will have a discussion on the future direction of the club as presented to you on the club night of 28 September.

Please read the powerpoint we presented with the feedback, if you have not already as we need to make some important decisions about the future direction of the club, including dissolution if there is no one to run it.  If the club is important to you in any way, please come along to join in the discussion

If you are unable to attend the critique night in person and have some comments to make, can you please contact one of the committee members to pass this on for you

Produce prize-winning images using layers – with Lindsay Gibbs

When: Tuesday 9 November 2021
Time: 7:30pm
Location: Hutt Valley Tramping Club
Topic: How to produce prize-winning images using layers

You asked for it and we are happy to supply!  For those of you with an interest in processing without using the adobe products: Lindsay will present an alternative to programs such as Adobe® Lightroom and Corel® Aftershot Pro.  He will show us how to extract and optimise the monochrome and colour components of an image, then once each part has been optimised the image is reassembled.

The “layers” image shows the steps involved. Moving counter-clockwise from the lower-left we see the original image, the monochrome component, the colour component, and the final image.

Lindsay Gibbs is:

Age … ancient
Dabbled with black and white photography in the early 1970’s
Joined Hutt Camera Club around 2002.
One of the first club members to adopt digital photography.
Past Committee Member and Competitions Secretary.
Successes include winning the Beginners trophy (2003), Intermediate trophy (2004), and the Advanced trophy (2008, 2009) using the above techniques.

From the Archives

Celebrating our 60th year, I will post a tidbit up from the archives each update.   This time a write up from Anne on the results of the Interclub Battle in 2005 which I thought was pretty apt seeing we did similar in the recent battle in 2021.
